Singer-songwriter Ryan Adams is currently in the middle of his first Australian tour since 2012. On Monday night Adams performed a solo acoustic show at the Sydney Opera House in Sydney, where he ended his main set with a tribute to Dave Grohl and Foo Fighters.

As pointed out by Relix, Adams introduced a cover of Foo Fighters’ “Times Like These” by dedicating the song to Grohl for being “able to continue doing what he loved even though he was totally broken.” The remark came in reference to Foo Fighters continuing their North American Tour despite Grohl’s severe leg injury.
