Taylor Swift took a break from the North American leg of her 1989 Tour to play "opening act" for Foo Fighters on Sunday (May 24) at the BBC Radio 1's Big Weekend festival in Norwich, England.
The double billing certainly made an impact on Foos frontman Dave Grohl, who dedicated the song "Congregation" to Swift and told the crowd, "I'm officially obsessed. She might want to get a restraining order because I'm all about Swift. I'm going to dedicate this song to Taylor Swift, how about that? This one goes out to my opening band, Taylor Swift."

"Congregation" was recorded in Nashville, where Swift lived before a recent move to New York City.
Grohl dedicated two more songs during the Foos' set to Swift and noted that "my kids would kill me if they found out" that Swift had gone on before the Foos at the festival.
Swift comes back across the pond this week to resume her tour on Saturday (May 30) in Detroit.
