‘Amazing’ fans say of Foo Fighters concert in Weathersfield

The Foo Fighters performed in Niles, Ohio.

WEATHERSFIELD, Ohio (WKBN) – Foo Fighters fans had the chance to see their favorite band up close and in person for a once in a lifetime performance Saturday.

Warren-native Dave Grohl and his band-mates took the stage in what once was an old sewing shop a few doors down from Record Connection in Weathersfield Township inside the Pine Tree Plaza.

It was a very intimate setting for fans, with just 150 attending the performance after pre-ordering the limited edition EP “Songs from the Laundry Room.”

“The show was amazing. I’ve seen the Foo Fighters before, but seeing them up close in a personal, tiny space was amazing,” said fan Annie Zaleski.

Many fans said they will likely never experience anything like that ever again.

“We were right on top of them. They performed great, non-stop energy from start to finish,” said fan Ryan Cocke.

Foo-fans who weren’t part of the 150 that got to see the show, went to the Pine Tree plaza trying to catch a glimpse of the band from outside the small venue.

Before playing the final song of the show , Dave Grohl told the fans that the band would see them again when they come back to Ohio but “it won’t be as cool as this because nothing is as cool as this.”
