This is the original broadcast of this live event on 21 May 2023.
It starts off with a 30 second countdown in the “waiting room” followed by the opening. Its. a 30 minute countdown in a live chat with fans from around the world. This opening segment was not included in the rebroadcast. In addition, in the same 30 minute countdown is a behind the scenes look at the preparation and technical set ups for the multi camera in studio live event that leads up to the actual broadcast.
All of the above was not rebroadcast. So this DVD contains that exclusive footage that more than likely will not air again.
Then the event begins, a global event featuring debut performances of new songs from the new LP “But Here We Are”. Also included are behind the scenes footage along and a few surprises all captured in the spacious yet homey confines of the band’s own 606 studios.
The intimate studio show, presented in black and white, previewing the veteran group’s upcoming 11th studio album, But Here We Are (June 2), featured the live debut of Josh Freese, who is stepping into the formidable shoes of late Foos drummer Taylor Hawkins; the band’s time-keeper died at age 50 of undisclosed causes in March 2022 while on tour in South America. Freese, a veteran studio/touring drummer, has played with acts including Guns N’ Roses, A Perfect Circle, and Nine Inch Nails. He was revealed as the drummer during the livestream after comedic cameos by Chad Smith, Tommy Lee and Danny Carey of Tool.
Just as Grohl’s drum stool was nearly impossible to take over thanks to the former Nirvana drummer’s formidable, crashing style, Freese will have a monumental task ahead following Hawkins, a beloved, blissful beat machine whose smile, good cheer and California cool became an enduring part of the Foos’ live appeal.
This livestream concert was the band’s first full set since a pair of Hawkins tribute concerts that took place in London and Los Angeles last fall. Those gigs feature a rotating group of drummers sitting in with the Foos, including Hawkins’ teenage son, Shane, Blink-182’s Travis Barker, tween viral sensation Nandi Bushell, The Darkness’ Rufus Taylor, Omar Hakim, Rage Against the Machine drummer Brad Wilk, Weezer drummer Pat Wilson, Metallica’s Lars Ulrich, the Police’s Stewart Copeland and the Red Hot Chili Peppers’ Chad Smith.
