Foo Fighters kicked off Super Bowl weekend by playing a concert in a New York "parking lot".

The band were playing at a specially constructed tented arena in the car park of the Bud Light Hotel Amphitheatre in Manhattan. "They always put us in the parking lot. Did you see Foo Fighters on the Grammys? In the parking lot. But you know what? I like being in the fucking tent in the parking lot with you guys," joked frontman Dave Grohl.

According to Billboard, Foo Fighters opened their set with 'All My Life', 'Times Like These' and 'Rope'. In a two-hour set they also drilled out 'The Pretender', 'Arlandria', a "bluesy" take on Tom Petty's 'Breakdown' and 'Best Of You'. They also played early track 'Big Me', while taking a humorous dig at the corporate nature of the gig.

However, the band decided against showcasing any of the material from their much-anticipated new album. "I wish I could play you our whole new record, but I don't wanna do that yet…It's a fuckin' surprise," teased Grohl. The gig was streamed live on YouTube. You can watch 45 minutes of the show below.

Foo Fighters recently made their live return, performing in Mexico on December 11, 2013. During the concert, the band covered songs by The Beatles and Pink Floyd.
