The latest episode of Foo Fighters’ HBO series Sonic Highways focused on the band’s time recording in Nashville, Tennessee. As they’ve done previously in Chicago and Washington, DC, the band marked the episode’s airing by performing an intimate concert. It also happened to be Halloween on Friday night, making the band’s set at Nashville’s Ryman Auditorium all that more epic.
With each member donning corpse makeup, Foo Fighters blasted through a 26-song set that included the live premiere of their latest song, “Congregation”, and a bevy of covers. As they did on Letterman last month, they performed “Polk Salad Annie” with Tony Joe White, and also covered Cheap Trick’s “Stiff Competition”, Queen and David Bowie’s “Under Pressure”, and Black Sabbath’s “War Pigs” with assistance from Zac Brown.
Check out a few fan-shot videos below. The full setlist follows.
