BlackBerry Storm rocks out

Bands promote Storm

The popular rock bands, the Foo Fighters, put on a concert at The Avalon theatre in Los Angeles, California along with Queens of the Stone Age. The event was a private concert at the 1,400 person Avalon to help promote the new BlackBerry Storm mobile phone.

Approximately 800 contest winners were guests at the concert, and Blackberry launched its first touch-screen phone, the Storm. The concert was first promoted as a "secret show," where fans texted in a code for access to the show.

Although the show had corporate promotional sponsorship, Dave Grohl of the Foo Fighters announced that the event was a rock concert. The Foos played a 12-song set, which included such popular songs as "All My Life," "Learn To Fly," "Stacked Actors," "My Hero," Everlong" and "The Pretender." Queens of the Stone Age played some favorites such as “A Song for the Deaf,” “Sick, Sick, Sick,” and “Millionaire”, among others.

Dave Grohl, who has played drums with the Queens in the past, did not play with them this time. The Foos are getting ready for a long rest from the road after a very hectic 2008 world tour. A new Foo Fighters DVD, “Live at Wembley Stadium” covering previous June 6th-7th shows there, will be released on November 18th by RCA.
