Foo Fighters Set To Rock The “2011 MTV Movie Awards Stage” With Their New Single “Walk”
MONDAY 6 JUNE AT 4PM
NEW YORK, NY, Auckland, New Zealand, May 23, 2011 – MTV has announced that the Foo Fighters will rock the Movie Awards stage for the first time, debuting their second single,
“Walk,” off their seventh studio album “Wasting Light.” Known for their epic live performances, Foo Fighters will join
hip-hop artists Lupe Fiasco and Trey Songz as the musical acts to be featured in the show, along with previously announced presenters Ryan Reynolds, Blake Lively, Steve Carell, Emma Stone, Shia LaBeouf, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, Josh Duhamel, Patrick Dempsey, Cameron Diaz, Jason Segel, Jesse Eisenberg, Aziz Ansari, Danny McBride, Nicki Minaj, Selena Gomez, Leighton Meester and Katie Cassidy. Hosted by Jason Sudeikis, the 2011 MTV Movie Awards
will broadcast on MTV NZ – SKY channel 014 – on Monday 6 June at 4pm [AEST].
Released in April, the Foo Fighters’ album, “Wasting Light” debuted #1 in 12 countries – the biggest worldwide chart
week of the band’s 16-year-and-going-strong-career. The album was recorded entirely in Dave Grohl’s home garage using
only analogue equipment. “Wasting Light's” no computers/no software back to basics approach has resulted in arguably the
strongest and most cohesive effort of the band’s storied career. From the hit single “Rope” to the frenetic opener
“Bridge Burning” to the beautifully bipolar “These Days” to stunning guest spots from Bob Mould (“Dear Rosemary”) and
Krist Novoselic (“I Should Have Known”), “Wasting Light” is a singular triumph: a band that’s headlined arenas, stadiums
and festivals the world over stripping itself down to the bare essentials and coming up with its finest hour.
