Taylor Swift and Foo Fighters both played huge stadium shows in London this weekend, and shared some lighthearted back-and-forth jibes at each other.

During the Foos’ show at the London Stadium on Saturday (June 22), frontman Dave Grohl referenced Swift’s show, to boos from fans.

He said: “I tell you, man, you don’t want to suffer the wrath of Taylor Swift. So we like to call our tour the ‘Errors Tour.’”

Grohl added with a smile: “We’ve had more than a few eras, and more than a few fucking errors as well. Just a couple. That’s because we actually play live. What? Just saying. You guys like raw, live rock ‘n’ roll music, right? You came to the right fucking place.”

Swift then seemingly responded to the jibe at the second of her three Wembley Stadium shows on Sunday night (June 23).

She told the crowd: “Every one of my band members, every single one of our crew, my band who’s gonna be playing live for you for 3.5 hours tonight, they deserve this so much. And so does every one of my fellow performers. And you just gave that to us so generously, we will never forget it.”

Reviewing Swift’s first Eras Tour show at Wembley on Friday night (June 21), Rolling Stone UK wrote: “No artist alive has the ability to dive so deep into their own lore and pull it off on such a massive scale. With countless easter eggs, a wonderful and warming culture of outfit creation, and stage production on a scale rarely seen, the tour is a cultural behemoth just like Swift. It’s hard to tell yet whether these shows will mark the end of Swift’s imperial, ubiquitous phase, but whether she retreats into the shadows now or not, this will surely go down as the apex of her startling career.”
