While the status of Lollapalooza‘s 2020 event remains in question due to the widespread live event hiatus, organizers for the festival are keeping busy with some pretty epic videos shared from their content vault, which has already inclued The Strokes‘ 2010 performance. Lollapalooza will air the Foo Fighters‘ 2011, rain-infused set tonight (May 7th) at 8:00 p.m. ET as part of the festival’s new Lolla From The Vault series.
The Foo Fighters epically battled some inclement weather throughout their 20-song performance at the 2011 edition of the Chicago festival, which included some of their most popular hits in addition to deep cuts from the band’s extensive catalog. After opening with three of their newer songs at the time, “Bridge Burning”, “Rope”, and “The Pretender”, the band launched into perhaps their most-popular throwback, “My Hero”. They then treated fans to a take on “Learn To Fly”, from 1999’s There Is Nothing Left To Lose, before a run through “White Limo”, “Arlandria”, “Breakout”, “Cold Day in the Sun”, “Long Road to Ruin”, “Stacked Actors” and “Walk”.
“Monkey Wrench”, from the Foo Fighters’ 1997 self-titled album, kicked off the final third of the set, which included a cover of Mose Allison‘s “Young Man Blues”, the original “Best of You”, and a rendition of “Everlong” featuring Perry Farrell, in addition to “Let It Die”, “Times Like These”, and “Skin and Bones”. Watch the entire performance below starting at 8:00 p.m. EDT and scroll down for a complete setlist.

The Foo Fighters had planned a massive 2020 Van Tour in which the band would play the same cities as their first nationwide tour.
