Foo Fighters versus Westboro Baptist Church spherical three.
Because the Dave Grohl-fronted band continues its nationwide tour, the rockers have encountered some surprises — together with a postponed live performance, combating off anti-vaxxers and a visitor look from Dave Chappelle.
The newest shock includes the Westboro Baptist Church protesting the band’s Aug. 5 present in Bonner Springs, Kan. The protestors had been standing exterior of the Azura Amphitheater, waving an array of indicators that learn “No Peace for the Depraved” and “God Hates Your Idols.”
Within the final troll, the band drove up in a flatbed truck every sporting Bee Gees influenced outfits — impressed by their new alter egos the “Dee Gees,” the tour’s newest gimmick
Grohl, 52, addressed the group proper earlier than the band lined the Bee Gees’ “You Ought to Be Dancing.”
“Women and gents, I acquired one thing to say,” he stated. “As a result of you realize what? I really like you! I do. The best way I have a look at it, I really like all people. Isn’t that what you’re presupposed to do? Can’t you simply love all people? As a result of I believe it’s about love. That’s what I believe. I ship all of my love, and also you shouldn’t be hating. You already know what you have to be doing? You ought to be dancing!”
