“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.
“Landmarks Live In Concert” was created by veteran documentary and live producer/director Daniel E Catullo III and hosted by Chad Smith, drummer for multiple Grammy Award-winning rock band the Red Hot Chili Peppers. Each episode sees Smith conducting one-on-one interviews with the performers as they explore their favorite locations around each Landmark.
The show’s travelogue component is co-produced with Bungalow Media + Entertainment.

About Foo Fighters
In the 22 years since the 1995 release of Foo Fighters’ self-titled debut album, Dave Grohl, Taylor Hawkins, Nate Mendel, Chris Shiflett, Pat Smear and Rami Jaffee have grown into the last great American arena/stadium rock band, won 11 Grammy Awards, sold 25 million records and raised tens of thousands of voices night after night with modern rock’s most indelible anthems.
Foo Fighters’ journey began with an eponymous 1995 debut and grew into one of rock’s most hallowed discographies, including 1997’s double-platinum The Colour and the Shape, Best Rock Album Grammy winners There Is Nothing Left To Lose (1999) and One By One (2002), the epic double LP Your Honor released in the FF 10th anniversary year of 2005, third and fourth Best Rock Album Grammy winners Echoes, Silence, Patience and Grace (2007) and Wasting Light (2011), and eighth FF album Sonic Highways, which shares its title with Grohl’s double-Emmy-winning HBO docuseries. In 2015, the band’s 20th anniversary celebration was the year’s #5 grossing tour–after which the band released the free Saint Cecilia EP as a thank you to its fans.
Foo Fighters recently resurfaced with the surprise hard rock anthem of the summer and first taste of the band’s upcoming ninth album Concrete and Gold, the superlative new “Run.” As soon as “Run” was unleashed without warning, an eager populace devoured the song and its mind-boggling time warp of a video–and those same millions ravenously anticipate Concrete and Gold’s release and the next FF world tour.
