The Foo Fighters will “Learn to Fly” overseas to London to get on the big stage to play some tracks off of their latest album.

Foo Fighters played their first large show of 2011 on February 25 when they headlined the NME Awards Big Gig in London.

The Foos kicked off the Wembley Stadium set with tracks from their latest album, Wasted Light. They played new tracks including “Rope,” “White Limo,” and “These Days,” as well as back catalog hits “Monkey Wrench,” “Generator,” “All My Life,” and “Pretender.”

Said Dave Grohl as the band took to the stage, “It’s nice to say we’re back. You guys know we’ve got a new record coming out in a month and a half? There’s some songs we’d like to play you off it.”

Grohl also thanked the 12,000-strong London audience for their enthusiasm before wrapping up the show with a four-song encore ending in the song “Best Of You.” Grohl also won the Godlike Genius Award at the NME Awards.

The bill also included Cee Lo Green, Band Of Horses, and No Age.
