TBT: Foo Fighters’ First Colorado Gig at Venue We’ve Never Heard Of
This year, I got to see the Foo Fighters at the Pepsi Center on the Concrete and Gold tour, which is why it's hard for me to imagine them playing a small venue at any time, but back in 1995, they did. It was April 15, 1995 at the Mercury Theatre in Denver — a place I've never in my life as a Coloradan heard of.
While their sets may exceed two hours these days, according to setlist.fm, this show only included ten songs (includes 'This Is a Call' and 'Big Me'). This was just after the release of the band's debut self-titled album, as they formed in 1994 following Kurt Cobain's suicide and the end of Nirvana.
Someone bootlegged audio from the show and now it's on YouTube, so you can hear what a Foo concert was like over 20 years ago in this week's #TBT.
