After making the small clubs of Los Angeles their personal playground to trumpet and hype the release of their newest studio (garage, rather, as it was recorded in Dave Grohl's Encino garage) release, Wasting Light, the Foo Fighters recently made their arena return to the Forum for their first full-blown show in over three years.

While obviously not as intimate as their earlier show at Spaceland, Grohl has an incredible talent of making each and every one of the attendees at his shows feel connected and engaged. For nearly three hours, The Foos tore through a set filled largely with tracks off Wasting Light, but made sure to keep fans satiated with the hits as well as two excellent covers of Pink Floyd's "In the Flesh" and Tom Petty's "Breakdown."

Whether it is because of Grohl's hilarious onstage banter or the sing-a-long anthems of the band, a Foo Fighters show is always an incredible and fulfilling rock concert experience.
