PANDEMONIUM broke out in Brighton when the secret got leaked about the Foo Fighters coming to town to perform a 'surprise gig' back in 2014. 

Hundreds of Brighton residents dashed to the seafront to grab an exclusive ticket to the concert that was held at the seafront venue Concorde 2. 

The band were announced last minute as the surprise act for a Radio 1 weekend in Brighton that was the final of the station's six week of summer where it had visited hotspots like Ibiza and Zante. 

Only 200 tickets were available from the box office at Concorde 2 and the events manager at the time, Christina Camm, commented that hundreds of people missed out.

Currently trending online, the American rock band from Seattle have just released their latest album 'Medicine at Midnight'. 

The set back in 2014 packed a punch with both band and fan favourites covering their 20-year career. 

The deafening roar which met lead man Dave Grohl as he walked onstage was described as 'undoubtedly the loudest Concorde 2 has heard in its long history'. 

As the crowd's jumping shook the floor all night, the party vibe fed the energy of the band across their energetic two-hour set. 

At the time the band had released seven albums and ensured they played a whole plethora of crowd pleasers and lesser performed ballads. 

Some of the hits they played included Learn To Fly, White Limo and they returned to stage following an encore with a performance of All My Life. 

The sweaty, joyful and euphoric atmosphere immersed by everyone in the Concorde that night is described as something that went down in Brighton's history. 

Since then, the tribute band UK Foo Fighters have also played a set in Concorde 2 emulating the majesty of the first time the real rock band came to town. 

Unfortunately there were no UK venues announced on the upcoming Foo Fighters 2021 tour. 

However, with a new album out we can only hope they make a comeback to our town in the future.
