After a couple of October performances, a memorable headlining set at the Voodoo Festival in New Orleans and three postponed dates throughout the country, the Foo Fighters picked things up where they left off in Madison, WI tonight, as the Seattle rockers brought their Concrete & Gold Tour to a sold-out Wisconsin crowd at the Kohl Center.
Performing for nearly three hours, with a setlist that covered the band’s new LP and their catalog of hits and B-sides, Dave Grohl and company did not disappoint, delivering a memorable night that Madison won’t soon forget. You can easily bet that many in attendance tonight will be glued to their computers this Friday (10 AM), to grab tickets to the band’s Wrigley Field performance this summer, because even 3-hours of the Foo Fighters will leave you wanting more.

2015 saw a lot of great concert tours, from J. Cole’s Forest Hills Drive Tour with Big Sean, YG and Jeremih to Taylor Swift’s huge 1989 World Tour. Some tours sold out stadiums and arenas, selling out the entire tour before it even begun, and some tours were in small intimate venues, either strategically or because simple supply and demand. Some had stacked lineups top to bottom and some introduced us to a lot of great new artists. Festivals like Lollapalooza, Bonnaroo and Coachella were bigger than ever this year, but that didn’t stop your favorite artists from building up some great shows of their own.

For our Hate It or Love It series we take a current hot topic in music news that polarizes reasonable minds in the music and entertainment world, and we have one of our writers advocate for one side of the argument and have another one of our writers advocate for the other side (trying our best to always stay fair and balanced). One of the biggest topics in music news this past month is Taylor Swift’s decision to pull her music off the popular streaming service Spotify. While Swift issued an op-ed piece in The Wall Street Journalstating “Music is art” that should be paid for, Spotify’s CEO agreed, but noted that they have paid artists over $2 billion dollars in royalties.
