Foo Fighters cover Rush’s Tom Sawyer at Rio show

Foo Fighters perform Tom Sawyer, the Rush classic, live at a show in Rio de Janeiro

At a show in Rio de Janeiro last night, Jan 29th, 2015, the Foo Fighters rocked an enormous stadium crowd with a 2 and a half hour set which included a part in the center of the crowd where the band performed 4 covers, including Rush’s Tom Sawyer.

    I respect both bands, FF & Rush, and understand the act of covering as either a tribute and proof of humbly, but in this case, the difference is big: what the original band performs with 3 masters, Dave needs 5 other friends to accomplish !

      True but not sure that’s really the point. Anytime a band like the Foo Fighters can show a Rush song to some fans that might not have known it, that’s a good thing.
