Foo Fighters to play Herod Atticus Theater in July

TAGS: Music, Archaeology

Legendary US rock band Foo Fighters will play an invitation-only event at Herod Atticus Theater in Athens in July after receiving the green light from the Central Archaeological Council (KAS).

Despite objections from members of the council, which has oversight over all of Greece’s ancient sites, regarding the nature of the concert and the weight of the equipment used by the band, KAS eventually gave permission for the event.

The concert, which is set to take place on July 10, will be filmed for an upcoming edition of PBS’s “Landmarks Live in Concert,” a popular music show  hosted by Chad Smith of the Red Hot Chili Peppers.

The Foo Fighters were formed in Seattle, Washington in 1994 by ex Nirvana drummer Dave Grohl.
