Last night, shortly after Blink-182 and The Killers officially shut down Grant Park in Chicago for the second day of Lollapalooza, Foo Fighters stormed the stage at the legendary Metro club, a stone’s throw away from Wrigley Field, for a marathon, three-and-a-half hour long set filled with classics, deep cuts, and new songs from their upcoming album Concrete And Gold. “Tonight we’re gonna try and break our record for longest show ever,” front man Dave Grohl told the crowd from the outset. “I hope you brought comfortable shoes”

I happened to be there, and can tell you it was one of the fiercest, most energy-packed sets of music I’ve had the pleasure to witness in person. The band opened with “Aurora” and over the course of the night, and into the wee hours of the morning, managed to bust out about 32-different cuts over the course of the night, including all-time hits like, “The Pretender,” “Learn To Fly,” “My Hero,” and the set closer “Everlong.” They also played some incredible covers of songs by AC/DC, the Rolling Stones, David Bowie and Queen, and the Faces.

Midway through the show, they decided to treat the crowd to a surprise, bringing out Lollapalooza founder, and Jane’s Addiction frontman Perry Farrell for a special performance of that group’s monstrous “Mountain Song.”
