After a 466 day recess, live music returned to Madison Square Garden in New York City. The sold-out show featuring the Foo Fighters was an emotionally charged night for the band and fans alike.
Few acts were greater impacted by the pandemic than the Foo Fighters. They had a 25th-anniversary tour and celebration cancelled as well as having an album release pushed back by about a year. But the tour dates are being rebooked and the band’s 10th studio album Medicine at Midnight has proven to be worth the wait.
The iconic Madison Square Garden is a part of the fabric of New York City. From hockey and basketball games to Billy Joel & and Phish concerts, venue promoters offer a wide variety of entertainment options.
However, it had been a while. Sporting events had started to come back with some Knicks and Rangers action. But it was up to the Foo Fighters to play the first notes of live music since pre-lockdown.
The Day the Music Came Back is an introspective nine and half minute look at the story behind the scenes at Madison Square Garden that day and is worth your time.
