Midlands-based Food Fighterz, consisting of Gavin Leach (Dave Grohl - lead vocals/guitar), Noel Eastwood (Chris Shifflet - guitar), Craig Haycock (Pat Smear - guitar), Matt Handley (Taylor Hawkins - drums) and Aiden Roberts (Nate Mendel - bass) rush headlong into the Seattle rockers' back catalogue with recent hit 'Run' and 2002's 'All My Life' but it's radio friendly offerings 'Times Like These' and 'Learn to Fly' that get the braver souls in the audience to venture from the sticky carpet to the stage.
'Arlandria' allows Leach to showcase the Grohl growl and 'No Way Back' is probably as close as the ex-Nirvana man got to his previous band's sound with the Foos.
'DOA' maintains the pace and the opening bars of 'The Pretender' herald a Led Zep moment in proceedings but tonight's set covers the whole gamut of Foo Fighters' career with 'White Limo', new track 'La Dee Da', 'My Hero' and 'Walk' encapsulating the essence of these monsters of 21st century rock.
As the set moves towards its climax, 'These Days' and 'This is a Call' bring the assembled throng nicely to the boil as 'Best of You', 'Breakout', 'Monkey Wrench' and 'Everlong' finally get the reticent rockers onto the dance floor.
