Beck / Chance the Rapper / the ‘Beek @ Firefly 2014
Foo Fighters set the bar high Friday night with its impromptu five-song set of covers, but they weren’t the only ones tapping into the deep well of other artists’ hits.
Arctic Monkeys played a bit of Black Sabbath’s War Pigs, Sleigh Bells teased the crowd with the intro to Extreme’s More Than Words and Imagine Dragons paid homage to Rush with a powerful rendition of Tom Sawyer. And that’s not even taking into account the collaborations, including Cage the Elephant jumping on stage with Imagine Dragons to play the latter’s hit Radioactive.
The talker of the festival, though, was Beck’s funkified version of Michael Jackson’s Billie Jean — including moves fit for the King of Pop — during his Saturday night set on the lawn stage. – [USA Today]
