The U.K. has been through a lot in the past two months, with terror attacks and a fatal fire testing the country's resilience. But Britian has remained strong, not giving into fear and pulling together for the victims of recent events in Manchester and London. This weekend, one of the world's largest festivals went down in Glastonbury, and concertgoers were living proof that love wins.
Consequence of Sound captured a lovely moment from Foo Fighters set, where the 150,000-people-deep crowd sang back "Best of You" to the rock legends. Frontman Dave Grohl looked in awe and appreciation at the massive audience as the band dropped out, and only the crowd was left singing -- everyone in unison.
"Guess what? This is exactly what I fucking hoped would happen," Grohl said with twinkly eyes, as he began strumming the song again. "Everybody tried to make us feel like, this is the most nerve-wracking, biggest night of our entire lives..."
As Grohl monologued, the crowd began to sing again -- the same "ohs" as before (and damn, the U.K. has good pitch!). "Oh shit, we're never gonna get out of here!" Grohl exclaimed. Taylor Hawkins looked amused from behind the drumset as the festival fiends belted "Oooooooh! Ooooh!" -- except this time they were echoing each other, like they were doing a round.
"If you guys sing that much, 10 more songs will take three more hours," Grohl laughed. And then they singing started again.
Foo Fighters recently announced a brand-new album and tour. Concrete and Gold will be out September 15, with its tour following three weeks later. Check out the Concrete and Gold tour dates and get tickets here.
