✔️ Foo Fighters w/The Struts Haters say that Foo Fighters is just a bunch of old guys reliving their glory days. The band turned that idea on its head in a 2017 video for “Run” from its latest album, last year’s Concrete and Gold. The clip finds its director — Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl, who’s pretty much unrecognizable thanks to his fogey-face makeup — leading other, also made-up members of the band in the midst of a nursing home revolt. It’s the band’s second Florida show in a decade, so expect a Springsteen-ian length set and every bit of the rock panache Grohl & Co. have come to be known for.
