Review: Foo Fighters at the Pepsi Center, 10/9/11

"You guys ready for a long fucking rock show tonight?" Foo Fighters frontman Dave asked the Pepsi Center crowd early in Sunday night's set. "You ready for that shit? Foo Fighters don't fuck around. We don't fuck around. We don't play those eensy-weensy one-hour-and-forty-five-minute shows. We don't do that shit. We got a lot of fucking songs, and we're going to play a lot of fucking songs tonight. I don't know what bands you see, but if they don't play for two and a half fucking hours, I don't fucking like them, you know what I'm saying? I'm not going to walk off the stage until I feel like I'm going to fucking puke. Just so you know."
