Foo Fighters kicked off their massive UK stadium tour with a huge gig in Sunderland last night (Monday 25 May), Gigwise reports.
After arriving in the country in style (in a weekend that saw them smash Radio One's Big Weekend and Grohl join Paul McCartney live on stage), the Foos headed north to headline Sunderland's Stadium Of Light.
The band performed on an ambitious stage set up, featuring a mini pop-up rotating stage and a T-bar gangway jetting out into the crowd.
As well as all of the usual Foos classics and cuts from last year's Sonic Highways, they also treated the crowd to massive covers by the likes of Queen, AC/DC, The Police and more.
