Photo Gallery: Foo Fighters at Wrigley Field

| July 31, 2018

Dave Grohl was quite the congenial host on Sunday night. The Foo Fighters’ frontman had gathered tens of thousands of guests and welcomed them into what felt like his backyard. It’s just that on this particular evening his playground was the baseball temple that is Chicago’s Wrigley Field. The former Nirvana drummer played the role of the cool high school senior who always throws the kegger.

For the entirety of the evening the music was loud, the language was bawdy and, if you didn’t enjoy yourself, well, you obviously went out of your way to not do so. The band rolled out a cavalcade of their Rock Radio hits (“Everlong,” “Monkey Wrench,” “Learn To Fly” and “My Hero”) and even brought out Cheap Trick’s Rick Nielsen for a cover of Fats Domino’s “Ain’t That A Shame.”

Somehow, they even managed to convincingly submerge Van Halen’s “Jump” inside of John Lennon’s “Imagine.” Quite apropos, considering that if Foo Fighters had shared an era with those 1970’s giants, it wouldn’t be difficult to envision their songs being blasted from a Camaro in a Burger King parking lot on hot summer nights. And as far as rock and roll is concerned, that’s some mighty high praise.
