Watch a Trailer for Foo Fighters’ ‘Live From the Acropolis’ November PBS Special
Early July saw Foo Fighters mark the live debut of the song "Arrows" from their upcoming LP Concrete and Gold in Athens, Greece, and now fans will be able to see the entire concert from their living room!
Landmarks Live and Great Performances have announced a Nov. 10 air date on PBS for Foo Fighters: Landmarks Live in Concert, A Great Performances Special from the Acropolis, which took place at the famed Odeon of Herodes Atticus.
The historic concert is the latest, and arguably most anticipated episode for Landmarks Live In Concert, the critically acclaimed PBS docu-series featuring a lineup of global superstars performing at monumental locations around the world.
“We’ve done some crazy things over the last 20 years,” says Foo frontman Dave Grohl, “But I think this might be the craziest thing the Foo Fighters have ever done.”
“Working with the Foo Fighters was a wonderful experience and I can’t wait for the world to see this show,” says Daniel E Catullo III, the creator, director and executive producer of Landmarks Live In Concert. “Logistically this was the largest undertaking and production I’ve ever done. Almost a year of planning, hundreds of people on the crew, coordination with the Greek Government, major logistics and coordination with the band and putting a rock show in an ancient amphitheater. The energy of the crowd and seeing the band perform in such a historic place is something I will never forget. This was one of the most amazing experiences of my life.”
Landmarks Live In Concert was created by veteran documentary and live producer/director Daniel E Catullo III and hosted by Chad Smith, drummer for Red Hot Chili Peppers. Each episode sees Smith conducting one-on-one interviews with the performers as they explore their favorite locations around each landmark.
About the upcoming episode, Smith says, “The Acropolis hasn't been rocked that hard in a while - maybe 2,500 hundred years, give or take. It was an amazing experience, made extra special that I could spend it with my longtime friends, the mighty Foos.”
Concrete and Gold will be out on Sept. 15 through Roswell Records / RCA and the Foo Fighters will hit the road shortly after in support. The band kicks off their U.S. run at the Cal Jam festival on Oct. 7 and all stops can be found here.
