About

About this website

The aim of this website is to document the live history of Foo Fighters including a complete guide to every single live show ever performed with information on setlists, recordings and photos from the shows. Other sections on the website include a Video Guide, detailing all official and unofficial DVDs available to collectors and a guide to the complete recording history of the band, including detailed information about studio sessions and others.

FooFightersLive.com initially launched in February 2006 with the aim of becoming the number one resource for information and resources on the band's live history and much more. Most of the founding members (see below) came from LiveNirvana.com which when established in 2002 had the same goals for the seminal grunge band Nirvana. That website became extremely popular so it was only natural that Foo Fighters fans from that community launched a website to do the same for the band.

Since launching in 2006 the website has developed greatly picking up where older Foo Fighters live guides left off and creating as in depth and factually accurate guide as possible. To start with we had a simple website and a Wiki for the live guide but over time we moved to a purpose built website with integrated live guide. Now in 2014 a new chapter has started with a brand new design and a brand new approach to the live guide. Everything is stored on a database which makes updating easier and also brings with it new features such as statistics.

Staff

All of the work on the database driven live guide is down to Sam Smith but there are other members of staff both current and past who make this website what it is including founder and original owner Pierre Leroy.
