Just two days after Foo Fighters played a surprise two-hour show at the 9:30 Club in Washington D.C. on Monday night (May 5th), frontman Dave Grohl popped up unannounced on Wednesday night (May 7th) in Nashville, Tennessee, to play an hour-long solo acoustic set for less than 100 people at the Bluebird Cafe.
- The Rock and Roll Hall of Famer reportedly began his show by saying, “My name’s Dave Grohl. I’m a drummer,” before regaling the small audience with unplugged versions of “Times Like These,” “Big Me,” “Friend Of A Friend,” “My Hero,” “Skin And Bones,” “Wheels,” “Learn To Fly,” “Ballad Of The Beaconsfield Miners” and “Everlong.”
- Just like Monday night’s show, Grohl did not debut any new material from the band’s upcoming eighth album.
- There was a camera crew on hand to capture the entire performance, so presumably the footage will surface at some point.
