The legendary Foo Fighters took the main stage at Napa Valley Exposition to play their first major U.S. show in nearly two years at BottleRock Festival. The Seattle natives kicked off their 20-song-set with ‘All My Life’, their 2002 track from ‘One By One’. They played critically acclaimed songs including ‘Times Like These’, ‘My Hero’, and ‘Best of You’. The band incorporated a cover of Queens’ ‘Another One Bites the Dust’ and a ‘Happy Birthday’ singalong dedicated to Dave Grohl’s wife.

 

The set seemed to be going seamlessly until the festival’s curfew began to approach. The Northern California based Bottle Rock Festival has a strict curfew of 10PM sharp. In 2014 The Cure were cut short during their headlining set at the festival. Toward Foo Fighter’s final song of the night, “Everlong,” festival organizers were prompted to pull the plug on the concert’s sound and video screens. Though the amplified sound of their set was cut off, the Foo Fighters did not miss a note and finished the remaining minutes of their farewell to the crowd. The rock legends continued playing the remainder of ‘Everlong’. Fans took notice of the decibel difference, and began singing along in support of the band. View live footage from the festival below.

Though Foo Fighters have not released a confirmed date for their new album, they have shared a new track ‘The Sky Is A Neighborhood’ from the highly anticipated record. The CEO of BottleRock festival in California revealed that the rockers will be in the studio for the remainder of this year, working on the album.

BottleRock Festival is currently the only North American date for the Foo Fighters this year, though the band does have a handful of festival performances and shows booked around the world.
