Relive Foo Fighters' sold-out concert at Madison Square Garden in June with 'The Day The Music Came Back' documentary — watch

The slow but steady return of live music is sure to give us that serotonin boost we need in these gloomy times. 

Iconic New York City venue Madison Square Garden has just released a short film documenting Foo Fighters' monumental sold-out concert on 20 June.

Frontman Dave Grohl penned a hopeful op-ed in The Atlantic around this time last year about the return of live music, writing: "In today's world of fear and unease and social distancing, it's hard to imagine sharing experiences like these ever again. [...] But I do know that we will do it again, because we have to. It's not a choice. We're human."

And that's exactly what the Foos did one year on, playing for a fully-vaccinated audience of around 15,000 people. According to Billboard, the band earned over US$1 million in ticket sales that night.

Comedian Dave Chapelle made a surprise cameo, joining the 'Best of You' act onstage for a rendition of Radiohead's 'Creep'. Additionally, the band covered the Bee Gees' 'You Should Be Dancing', which will also feature in their Record Store Day special release, Hail Satin, due out 17 July. Check out what fans had to say about the concert below.

Known for their rousing live performances, it makes perfect sense that the first act to revive the Gardens would be the Foos. Although the concert drew a small anti-vaxxer protest outside the venue, it's clear that the audience's euphoria was the triumph of the night.
