“Ladies and gentlemen, would you please welcome … me!” – Dave Grohl
Not many tribute bands get invited on stage to perform with their heroes; and NEVER with one of the biggest rock bands in the world.
UK Foo Fighters frontman ‘Jay Apperley’ made history in September 2014 at Brighton’s Concorde 2 when he was personally asked on stage by none other than ‘Dave Grohl’ himself to perform ‘White Limo’ with the actual Foo Fighters!
“That was awesome!” – Dave Grohl
Fans of the UK version have known for years, of course, that rarely has a tribute been performed with such obvious love and passion for the music; and lookalike and soundalike Jay Apperley becomes rock legend ‘Dave Grohl’ both vocally and slinging a guitar.
Their hugely successful UK tour ‘Sonic Motorways’ – a name cleverly derived from the title of the Foo’s new album, saw them sell out shows in London, Glasgow, Birmingham, Manchester and many more as fans flocked in their thousands to see them.
Piling through hit after hit, the band perform set lists containing all the classics – such as ‘Everlong’ and ‘Best of You’ alongside brand new material from the Foo’s new album ‘Sonic Highways’ like ‘Something From Nothing’ and ‘Congregation’. They absolutely nail the true vibe of a Foo’s live experience, playing all the singles with extra parts and the sing-alongs bits as well.
All performed down to the closest detail making it a truly unmissable show for any Foo Fighters fan. Be sure to catch them live in 2017.
