Foo Fighters and Madison Square Garden Entertainment Corp. teamed up to release The Day The Music Came Back, a short documentary film made of footage from the band’s June 20 post-pandemic return to the stage at the legendary NYC venue.

The 10-minute movie captures behind-the-scenes conversations amongst workers and fans on how Madison Square Garden was able to be filled at full capacity again during the fully vaccinated show.

Watch The Day The Music Came Back below.

The film shows Dave Grohl opening the show with “Times Like These” for the 15,000 fans in attendance.

“I’ll tell you something, for the last year I had this reoccurring dream that I would walk on stage and we would look at each other for the first time,” Grohl says in the film. “We’d just look at each other like ‘Thank god we got here.’ And then, when I walked out on stage tonight, it was just like that fucking dream.”

The film also showcases performances of the Foos biggest hits, like “Best of You” and “Everlong.”
