Like a growing number of locals in our city, Dave Grohl isn’t actually from Seattle. He relocated here from Virginia in 1990 to drum in Nirvana, recorded his first Foo Fighters demo at Robert Lang Studios (that recording would later become Foo Fighters’ eponymous debut), and spent some time here before moving his base back to Virginia (and LA). But this show feels like a homecoming, with Grohl returning with the band that he took to arena-level heights of mainstream fame while generally maintaining the quality of his music—alt-rock with pop catchiness and vague prog- and hard-rock tendencies. Also, Grohl is a badass showman, an expert at spurring 20,000 people to sing and fist-pump along to those ol’ Foo songs.
