Default Why Not Mention The Names Of The Ladies Singers In Rio Concert?

I really enjoyed the group’s show in Rio de Janeiro last week. It proved, once more, how the Foo Fighters are loved by the “Cariocas” (people born in Rio). I was quite amazed by the fact that the crowd knew all the lyrics from a huge number of songs!!

However, one fact during the presentation called my attention. Dave Grohl, during one of the performances, introduced the members of the band, one by one. For my surprise he did not even mentioned the three female singers, like they simply did not exist!! I found this quite indelicate, as I imagine that every artist wants to be recognised by the quality of his/her work. Thus, I suggest the simple gesture of presenting the ladies be part of the next shows.

Did he not even mention them by first name before 'Dirty Water' like he usually does? That's how it's gone at previous shows, and sometimes if the crowd is particularly great, he'll call them out one by one and get fans to say hi to them. So they have been acknowledged, sometimes more so depending on the night.

They also join for the bow at the end of each show. If he didn't mention them at your show he probably just genuinely forgot. He forgot to introduce Nate once.

By the way if you're interested they are Samantha Sidley, Barbara Gruska and Laura Mace.

Agreed. He introduced them in Des Moines.
