Show: Foo Fighters - Showbox Market - Seattle 11.28.14
Review/ iPhone5 photo/video: "Iron" Mike Savoia

You won't see this very often or ever again in Seattle! Foo Fighters playing the Showbox Market!

"Sonic Highways" is latest release from the Foo Fighters. As part of an HBO television series, "Foo Fighters: Sonic Highways", the band recorded eight songs for the album, one in each of these cities: Austin, Chicago, Los Angeles, Nashville, New Orleans, New York, Seattle, and Washington, D.C. in which they documented in each city their recording process and the town's music history for the TV show.

In Seattle, it was done at Robert Lang Studio's in which Dave has worked on many of the earlier Foo Fighter songs there. Before the concert the audience was treated to the screening of the band’s latest "Seattle" episode of Sonic Highways. What an amazing piece it was and truly showed how the Seattle music scene since the 60s has influenced the world with musical greats like no other city in the USA! After the premier the Foo Fighters jumped onstage and cranked an entertaining 32-song, 3 hour show! Yes you read that right, 3 hour show! Check out this setlist:

Winnebago / The Feast and the Famine / Learn to Fly / White Limo / Arlandria / Rope / The Pretender / My Hero / Hey, Johnny Park! / Monkey Wrench / Congregation / Walk / Cold Day in the Sun / In the Clear / I'll Stick Around / Big Me / Something From Nothing / These Days / Wattershed / For All the Cows / Miss You (The Rolling Stones cover) / Ain't Talkin' 'bout Love (Van Halen cover) / Breakdown (Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers cover) / Stiff Competition (Cheap Trick cover - Dave on drums, Taylor on lead vocals) / Subterranean (Live Debut, Requested onstage by Producer Butch Vig) / Under Pressure (Queen & David Bowie cover) / All My Life / This Is a Call / Weenie Beenie / Best of You / Exhausted / Everlong

I didn't receive a photo pass so I had to do everything on my iPhone. He's some of my video coverage for those of you not lucky enough to be there. My feet were killing me standing there for 5 hours, but I'm not complaining too much, thanks to buddy Rob I scored the greatest Black Friday deal of them all (free) in the Showbox with the Foo Fighters. Love when big named artist play small clubs. Remember 2 months ago when Tom Morello & Chris Cornell played El Corazon (see video) in Seattle too? Now that was awesome! Seattle, their musicians and the music scene rules!

If you wondered how people got into this show (besides the band's guest list) this was the event information. With this format of ticketless entry it absolutely cutout any ticket scalping even though people were still out front of the venue offering attendees up to 1k to be their +1 to get in.
