Foo Fighters set for ‘Landmarks Live In Concert’ in Athens

Landmarks Live in Concert has announced a July 10th concert at the iconic Acropolis of Athens, Greece featuring multiple Grammy Award-winning rock band Foo Fighters. This historic performance will be filmed to air this fall as part of Landmarks Live In Concert  – the critically acclaimed PBS docu-series featuring a lineup of global superstars performing at monumental locations around the world.

Doors for this momentous evening are 6:45 pm and the show will begin at 8:45 pm. Tickets are available online. Net proceeds from each ticket purchase will be donated to a local Greek charity.

“I’ve always wanted to work with the Foo Fighters and do a show in Greece,” says series creator/director/exec producer Daniel E Catullo. “Having both wishes come true in the same episode is a huge moment for me. When I first came up with the idea for the series, this is exactly what I had in mind – a legendary band playing a legendary venue. We’ve had some incredible shows so far, but this one officially sets our standard at a new level.”

Didi Music serves as production consultant for the Foo Fighter show. View Master is the head production for the documentary and concert in Greece.
