"Rock & roll returned to The Garden" (their words) when the Foo Fighters played the first full-capacity MSG show since COVID on Sunday night (6/20). You had to show proof of vaccination to attend, and like at the recent California show, there were anti-vax protesters outside the venue:
Like in California, the Foos played plenty of old fan faves ("Everlong," "Monkey Wrench," "My Hero," "This Is A Call," "Learn To Fly," "Breakout," "All My Life," "Times Like These," "Best of You," etc), as well as plenty of newer ones, including a chunk from last year's Medicine at Midnight. At MSG, they also took the time to debut one of the Bee Gees covers off their upcoming Bee Gees tribute album (as the Dee Gees), and they also brought out Dave Chappelle to join them for a cover of Radiohead's "Creep" (a song Chappelle is no stranger to singing in public).
One night earlier, Dave Chappelle was at Radio City for the premiere of his new documentary and he brought out several guests, including A$AP Ferg, Q-Tip, Fat Joe, Redman, Talib Kweli, De La Soul, and Ghostface Killah. He also appeared with Robert Glasper at Blue Note Jazz Club.
