Foo Fighters closed BBC Radio 1’s Big Weekend in Norwich on Sunday (May 24), dedicating a song from their set to singer Taylor Swift.

Performing ‘Congregation’ from latest album ‘Sonic Highways’, Dave Grohl announced that the rendition was in honour of Swift. The band had written and recorded the song in Swift’s hometown of Nashville.

Grohl told the crowd: “I’m officially obsessed, she might want to get a restraining order because I’m all about Swift. I’m going to dedicate this song to Taylor Swift, how about that? This one goes out to my opening band, Taylor Swift.” Watch footage below.
