The Foo Fighters delivers an one of a kind, historic performance at the famed Odeon of Herodes Atticus from the Acropolis in Athens, Greece, in the latest installment of Landmarks Live in Concert for THIRTEEN’s Great Performances. The concert Captured this past July, Foo Fighters – Landmarks Live in Concert: A Great Performances Special premieres nationwide Friday, November 10 at 10 p.m. on PBS (check local listings) and will be available to stream the following day via pbs.org/gperf and PBS apps.
Created by veteran documentary and live event producer/director Daniel E Catullo III, Landmarks Live in Concert features a lineup of global music superstars performing at landmark locations of either historical or personal significance around the world. Each episode is hosted by Chad Smith, drummer for the Red Hot Chili Peppers, who interviews the artists as they explore locations around each landmark. The series’ travelogue component is co-produced with Bungalow Media + Entertainment.
About the upcoming episode, Smith says, “The Acropolis hasn’t been rocked that hard in a while – maybe 2,500 hundred years, give or take. It was an amazing experience, made extra special that I could spend it with my longtime friends, the mighty Foos.” Landmarks Live in Concert launched in January with Alicia Keys at multiple locations around New York City, including the famed Apollo Theater. Subsequent episodes featured Brad Paisley at West Virginia University and Andrea Bocelli live at Florence’s Palazzo Vecchio.
