Dave Grohl forgot the lyrics to Foo Fighters’ “Monkey Wrench” at Madison Square Garden in New York last night.
BreakingGaga posted on the Foo Fighters Reddit, “I wanted nothing more than to go to this show and even was first in line to get presale tickets. I had tickets and a room booked for Boston Calling last year and then that got cancelled. FF is my absolute fav band and absolutely put on the best live show I’ve ever seen. I swore when covid started that I wouldn’t miss the first show back for the whole world.
I live in NYC. I was so psyched to go to the MSG opening, when I find out I’m invited to meet my boyfriend’s parents for the first time, in visiting from out of state, last night. I think this person is “the one”, and I know relationships take sacrifice and compromise, so when I realized I couldn’t get out of the meeting, I sold my tickets. I prayed the person buying them from me would have such a rocking time in my place.
This morning I saw the setlist (they played Arlandria which I haven’t seen them play live in years and is my favorite by far), the Dave chappelle cameo, The Bee Gees cover, and I just cried and cried. It’s really hard to imagine this person (or any person) will be worth having missed this show to meet his parents instead! The meeting went well and they loved me, but every cell in my body was wishing I was there instead.
Someone please tell me it wasn’t as good as their usual shows, there will be many more and there will be better… something, anything- please??? Someone humor me. I can’t stop the tears!! If not, I really hope y’all rocked out for me, and I can’t wait to join ya next time.”
