Foo Fighters Dedicate Song to Taylor Swift at BBC Radio 1’s Big Weekend
It seems Foo Fighters might love Taylor Swift as much as the Billboard Music Awards does: During his band's headlining set at BBC Radio 1's Big Weekend yesterday (May 24), Dave Grohl introduced their performance of "Congregation," from their most recent album Sonic Highways, by saying that it was in honor of Swift and was recorded in Nashville, Tenn., her hometown.
"I'm officially obsessed. She might want to get a restraining order because I'm all about Swift," Grohl said. "I'm going to dedicate this song to Taylor Swift, how about that? This one goes out to my opening band, Taylor Swift," referring to the fact that Swift performed on the main stage immediately before Foo Fighters. Check out footage of the dedication and performance below.
The group's praise of Swift follows them honoring another legend recently, as they appeared on the final episode of the Late Show With David Letterman last week to perform "Everlong," a track that Letterman famously loves, to score a slideshow of his career highlights.
