Foo Fighters returned to the stage on Sunday night to headline the 2017 BottleRock Napa Valley Music Festival. The band delivered a 20-song career-spanning setlist packed with greatest hits, rollicking anthems, and brief covers of Queen’s “Another One Bites the Dust” and “867-5309”. By all accounts it was a standard Foo Fighters festival show — that was until the very end.

Midway through the Foo’s finale performance of “Everlong”, the festival actually pulled the plug due to curfew. Undeterred, the band continued playing the song sans sound, with the audience singing along. Watch footage of the epic moment above.

According to the San Francisco Chronicle, BottleRock implemented a strict 10:00 p.m. curfew after residential neighborhoods complained about the festival’s sound during its inaugural edition in 2013. The Cure previously had the plugged pulled on them in 2014.

Check out Foo Fighters’ full BottleRock setlist below. “The Sky is a Neighborhood”, a new Foo Fighters song recently debuted live by Dave Grohl and Taylor Hawkins, was written on the set, but not played.
