On the final day of the 2023 Sonic Temple Art & Music Festival in Columbus, Ohio, the Foo Fighters marked their third gig with their new live drummer, John Freese. With an impressive record of bands in Freese’s touring history, such as Blink-182, Guns n’ Roses, Nine Inch Nails, and several others, Dave Grohl introduced the new touring addition through covering notable songs from bands on Freese’s resume. It was the Foo Fighters’ third gig playing with Freese, and the audience was more than receptive with Dave Grohl’s introduction to the new addition.
While brief, Freese was greeted with a more than enthusiastic response from the crowd as Grohl began singing “March of the Pigs” from Nine Inch Nails. Though the entire song was not covered, cut-off by Grohl laughingly admitting to not knowing the words, it was incorporated into a mix of Devo’s “Whip It’ and Puddle of Mudd’s “Blurry.” It was more than a warm welcome to John Freese as he begins touring with the Foo Fighters.
