Foo Fighters cover Queen, Van Halen and The Rolling Stones at Firefly Festival – watch

Band play set filled with cover versions at Delaware festival

Foo Fighters headlined the Firefly Music Festival in Delaware last night, finishing their set with an encore filled with cover versions.

Dave Grohl and his bandmates played their only scheduled date of the summer at the event. Click above to watch their cover Queen’s ‘Under Pressure’. Elsewhere in the encore, they covered School’s Out by Alice Cooper,
Miss You by The Rolling Stones and Van Halen’s ‘Ain’t Talkin’ ‘Bout Love.’

Although the band are working on a new studio album, there were no new songs in the set. Instead the band leaned heavily on their greatest hits; incorporating ‘Times Like These’, ‘My Hero’, Monkey Wrench’ and ‘All My Life’ into the 21 song set.


Alternative Nation reports that guitarist Chris Shiflett played the whole show sitting down as he is nursing broken ankle. “Its because he’s old”, Grohl is quoted as saying to the audience. “When you get old, hair grows in weird places and your bones just break.”

Foo Fighters played:

‘Times Like These’
‘The Pretender’
‘Learn to Fly’
‘White Limo’
‘My Hero’
‘Cold Day in the Sun’
‘Big Me’
‘Monkey Wrench’
‘These Days’
‘This Is a Call’
‘Best of You’
‘All My Life’
‘School’s Out’
‘Miss You’
‘Ain’t Talkin’ ‘Bout Love’
‘Under Pressure’

Though technically Foo Fighter’s only planned live show of the summer, the band recently agreed to perform for a group of fans who set up a kickstarter campaign to have them play live in Richmond for the first time since 1998.
