Foo Fighters and Taylor Swift performed at Radio 1’s Big Weekend at Earlham Park in Norwich, England over the weekend. Dave Grohl, Foo Fighters’ front man, dedicated “Congregation” to Taylor Swift, which they wrote together in Swift’s hometown of Nashville.
Said Grohl: “I’m officially obsessed, she might want to get a restraining order. To my opening band, Taylor Swift. Taylor and the Swifts.”
He continued: “my kids will kill me for saying this, but this one is dedicated to Taylor Swift” as he closed Big Weekend with “Best of You.”
Foo Fighters recently posted a pro-shot mini-documentary online about the band’s Record Store Day (April 18th) performance in front of 100 people at the tiny Record Connection in Niles, Ohio.
In the video, store owner Jeff Burke recalls how he got the money to originally open the store and then discusses with customers how important the Foos performance was, saying, “What a statement that really makes, by the Foo Fighters coming here and wanting to play for you guys. It’s mind-blowing.”
