Watch This Amazing Five-Year-Old Fan Dance With Foo Fighters Onstage At His First-Ever Gig
At any age, going to your first-ever gig can be an overwhelming experience – but not for five-year-old Taylor, who became the star of the show in Belfast last night (August 19).
The young fan was invited up onstage by Foo Fighters after being spotted by Dave Grohl in the crowd at Vital Festival at Boucher Road Playing Fields, and promptly blew everyone’s minds during All My Life with his absolutely brilliant, energetic – and, frankly, adorable – dancing.
Taylor’s mum, Nikki Hooper, later tweeted replying to impressed fans saying, “No E numbers… that is just pure energy,” and, “We are all just in shock.”
It’s hard to imagine how any future gig is going to top this…
Well done, Taylor!
In other news, we recently asked Foos guitarist Chris Shiflett about the band’s enduring appeal, and if he could pinpoint the secret to their continued success.
“I don’t know that it’s any specific one thing, but I think you have to credit a lot of it to Dave and his personality,” Chris pondered. “People love that dude. I think he represents something to a lot of people out there. He has that gift that means he can make 80,000 people feel like they’re his best friend. He has that kind of magic, that x‑factor thing. I don’t know how you define that, or explain that.
“On top of that, we’ve consistently put out records every couple of years. There’s never been a point where we’ve taken 10 years off because we all fucking hate each other and have broken up. Or we’ve all gone off and made reggae records, or whatever. We go out on the road and we play. There’s never been a huge diversion from consistently doing the work. And for people of a certain age when Nevermind came out, our band triggers an emotion in them. And now they bring their kids to the shows.”
