We saw the foo fighters play their first UK gig on Saturday 2 September 1995 at the reading festival. They headlined the second stage while bjork headlined the main stage. We got home Monday evening and headed into Manchester on Tuesday morning and bought tickets for the foo fighters that night at the academy. The support band was presidents of the United States. They did a cover of video killed the radio star and told the audience they wrote it as a joke. We were in our early teens and I'm ashamed to say we spent the next few months believing we saw the band that wrote video killed the radio star supporting the foo fighters......
