The police were called and people took to social media for a sonic disturbance that travelled further than anticipated. Who was it? None other than American rock ‘n’ roll giants who’s classics roared 10 miles across the Greater Manchester area.

Greater Manchester police confirmed that complaints had been made claiming the concert was clearly audible from Fallowfield, Whalley Range and Stockport respectively. 50,000 attended the concert at the Emirates Lancashire County Cricket Ground on Wednesday 27th May 2015.

Even Ashdown, the company that Foo Fighters bassist Nate Mendel endorses, took to Facebook to say: “Wow – like to think we played a small part in this.”

Nate’s Ashdown ABM-1200 EVO IV bass head , Ashdown ABM 810 cabinet and the NM2 Nate Mendel Signature Double Distortion pedal were all on show and contributed to this excellent sonic experience. Chris Shiflett’s Telecaster Deluxe electric guitar also got a run out as the band roared through 20 years of classic hits.
