The Foo Fighters show had more emotional moments. For example, singer Dave Grohl burst into tears at the start of ‘Times Like These’. Hits such as ‘The Pretender’, ‘Everlong’ and ‘Learn To Fly’ were also featured, each time a different guest drummer was allowed to perform.
Not only the Foo Fighters were on stage. World stars such as Liam Gallagher, Brian Johnson, Brian May and Paul McCartney also performed during the event. Taylor Hawkins died at the end of March at the age of 50 in a hotel in the Colombian capital Bogota.
