On the cusp of the 20th anniversary of Nirvana's break through album "Nevermind" Dave Grohl and the Foo Fighters stormed into the First Niagara Center on Sunday night. The stage was big with a runway separating the masses of general admission moshers on the floor. A cool component for those above stage level was that the stage was interactive displaying all kinds of cool graphics as well as a great light and projection show, but that all took a back seat to the music and the showman Dave Grohl.
They came out with incredible energy and asked the crowd if it was ok if they played all their music, then they did... well not all of it, but a blistering 2 1/2 hour, 24 song attack on the thousands who filled FNC. As if their body of work wasn't enough they hit us with a great rendition of "In the Flesh" by Pink Floyd off "The Wall" as well as "Breakdown" by Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers, which was a perfect lead into a kick ass version of "Everlong" to end the show.
Just a couple of thoughts from the photographer. Were you there?
