Foo Fighters headlined at the closing ceremony of the Invictus Games (September 14th) as London’s Mayor Boris Johnson and Prince Harry watched on. The legendary rock group opened a set of their greatest hits, with ‘All My Life’ and ‘Everlong’ playing 11 tracks in total for thousands of fans at London’s Olympic Park.

Prince Harry personally introduced the band after delivering a speech paying tribute to the wounded, injured and sick service personnel who had competed in the Invictus Games. He apologised to lead singer Dave Grohl for keeping him waiting, joking that he was ‘really old’ anyway. After the pair exchanged a hug on stage, Prince Harry proceeded to watch the whole set from the crowd whilst Boris left half way through the set.
Grohl paid tribute to the athletes of the Invictus Games by playing ‘My Hero’ in their honour, announcing that the track, “goes out to all my heroes tonight.” He went on to explain how he was invited to play at the Invictus Games by the royal as he explained to him over the phone the concept of the massive event.
Dave said, before closing the show with ‘Everlong’, “Thank you very much for making this one of the most special occasions of our lives. I can’t wait to come back and play for you again. It won’t be too long.” Then blew a kiss to all his fans and all those at the Invictus Games.

Earlier that week, the Foo Fighters had played three intimate shows in the UK at small venues under the secret name ‘The Holy Shits’.
