Dave Grohl & Madison Square Garden
The Foo Fighters

Last night at NYC’s Madison Square Garden, Dave Grohl and the boys not only played past midnight — a rarity given the venue’s typical 11 p.m. curfew — but during the encore, they brought out Joan Jett and Husker Du leader Bob Mould for rip-roaring covers of “Bad Reputation” and Tom Petty’s “Breakdown,” respectively.

Before all that, however, the band was doing fine on its own. F-bombs were flying from Grohl’s mouth, shred-heavy solos coming from his fingers, and laps through the audience kept him running (via an extended stage that spanned the distance of general admission). It was an inspiring bit of frontman badassery — a universal truth to those in attendance at the packed arena, which has recently undergone a makeover.

The Foos’ 24-song set, which was preceded by openers Social Distortion and the Joy Formidable, kicked off around 9:30, led by “Bridge Burning” and a handful of other standouts off the band’s latest, “Wasting Light.” Grohl’s standard “it’s going to be a looooong night” line was met by hearty cheers, as was his “Guitar Hero” rant, in which Grohl urged parents to buy their kids “a real one [guitar]… they might write something like this [‘Monkey Wrench’].”..; [Billboard]

The tour continues in NJ tonight. Pictures of all the bands at the NYC show last night (11/13), with videos of both special guest moments, and the headliner’s full setlist, below….
