LOS ANGELES, Nov. 10, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Multi-Grammy-winning rock band Foo Fighters delivers an electrifying, historic performance at the famed Odeon of Herodes Atticus from the Acropolis in Athens, Greece, in the latest installment of Landmarks Live in Concert for THIRTEEN’s “Foo Fighters – LANDMARKS Live in Concert: A Great Performances Special.”

Captured this past July, “Foo Fighters – LANDMARKS Live in Concert: A Great Performances Special” premieres nationwide Friday, November 10 at 10 p.m. on PBS (check local listings) and will be available to stream the following day via pbs.org/gperf and PBS OTT apps.

Created by veteran documentary and live event producer/director Daniel E Catullo III, Landmarks Live in Concert features a lineup of global music superstars performing at landmark locations of either historical or personal significance around the world. Each episode is hosted by Chad Smith, drummer for multi-Grammy-winning rock band Red Hot Chili Peppers, who interviews the artists as they explore locations around each landmark. The series’ travelogue component is co-produced with Bungalow Media + Entertainment.

About the upcoming episode, Smith says, “The Acropolis hasn't been rocked that hard in a while – maybe 2,500 hundred years, give or take. It was an amazing experience, made extra special that I could spend it with my longtime friends, the mighty Foos.” Landmarks Live in Concert launched in January with Alicia Keys at multiple locations around New York City, including the famed Apollo Theater. Subsequent episodes featured Brad Paisley at West Virginia University and Andrea Bocelli live at Florence’s Palazzo Vecchio.

Landmarks Live in Concert is a production of City Drive Films. Daniel E Catullo III, CEO of City Drive Films, is the series creator, director and executive producer. The series is co-produced with Bungalow Media + Entertainment. Its CEO, industry veteran Robert Friedman, also serves as executive producer.
