Concert Review: Foo Fighters 'LIVE' In Singapore

By  August 27, 2017

When you are one of the world's biggest surviving rock band and your return to a country has taken more than 20 years, there is going to be a certain level of expectation set on you.

So when Foo Fighters finally made their highly-anticipated return to our shores at the National Stadium, meeting the expectations of a 20,000-strong crowd was not going to be an easy feat.

It was 8:05pm when the lights dimmed and the sound of electric guitars echoed across the stadium. As if fans were expecting the band to be late, it wasn't until frontman Dave Grohl appeared on the big screen when unprepared fans quickly got onto their feet and erupted in applause to welcome the rock legends on stage.

The night began with I'll Stick Around before diving into the band's greatest hits such as All My Life, Learn To Fly and The Pretender. A friend who was standing in Pen A described her experience in the first few rows as a "gas chamber" and was subjected to "involuntary vertical bodysurfing and moshing", which should've been expected, in my opinion.

It was evident that Singapore's humidity was getting to Dave Grohl when he doused an entire bottle of water on himself, before leading the stadium with My Hero. What a surreal and goosebump-inducing experience it was to listen as the entire stadium sang back its chorus in unison to their heroes on stage.

The entertaining and extended band introductions that came halfway through the set included snippets of Seven Nation Army by The White Stripes, Stayin' Alive by Bee Gees and Another One Bites The Dust by Queen, all of which came to abrupt endings. "Wrong band," Dave reminded.

Drummer Taylor Hawkins then took over vocals in Cold Day in the Sun, bringing our attention to the photo of a young Chris Cornell that was on his drum set - the band's tribute to the late Soundgarden frontman.

.

One of the highlights of the night was the trio from their 2011 Wasting Light album, which included Walk, These Days and Rope. Throughout the two-hour set, the veteran performers were able to kept spirits high and show how a real concert should really be. All around the stadium, fans could be seen dancing, jumping and even running around.

However, as energetic and engaging as it was, Foo Fighters' concert was far from perfect. One of the most obvious drawbacks was the setlist that was shorter than many other stops in their Concrete and Gold tour. Compared to their shows in Europe or the one in Bangkok that took place just two days prior, their show here was cut by at least three songs, including Wheels and Skin and Bones which just so happened to be two of the songs that I was personally eager to watch.

All in all, the band put on a solid show that was in their best ability. Many would guess that there was a strict time limit imposed on the show, so it comes with a sigh of relief that audience interaction was not compromised that night. Despite the shorter setlist, Dave's friendly banter and flying kisses were a good trade-off. "Next time, it won't take 20 years, because I'll be 68 then," he said of the band's next return. We'll hold him to his word.
