“Working with the Foo Fighters was a wonderful experience and I can’t wait for the world to see this show,” says Daniel E Catullo III, creator, director and executive producer of LANDMARKS LIVE IN CONCERT. “Logistically, this was the largest undertaking and production I’ve ever done. Almost a year of planning, hundreds of people on the crew, coordination with the Greek Government, major logistics and coordination with the band, and putting a rock show in an ancient amphitheater. The energy of the crowd and seeing the band perform in such a historic place is something I will never forget. This was one of the most amazing experiences of my life.”
