Concluding the 4-day Lollapalooza festival, the iconic rock band Foo Fighters delivered a memorable performance as social media users gushed over them while streaming it Live from their couches. Even though the Grant Park in Chicago was packed with music lovers, there were many who could not attend the renowned festival.
Many took to Twitter to thank the streaming service Hulu as they thoroughly enjoyed the band’s set at the 2021 edition of the festival. Foo Fighters fronted by Dave Grohl also paid a special tribute to iconic group Bee Gees and Queen by covering their popular numbers. Speaking of the festival, Lollapalooza opened its gate for fans on July 29 and wrapped it up on August 1, 2021.

While we saw artists like Playboi Carti, Tyler, The Creator, Megan Thee Stallion, Machine Gun Kelly, Limp Bizkit band and Post Malone among others nailing their respective performances, Foo Fighters acted as the perfect headliners to close the coveted music festival. Lollapalooza was canceled in 2020 due to the unfortunate global pandemic but returned with a strong line-up this year.
Foo Fighters opened their set with the song ‘Times Like These’ and followed it by their hit singles like ‘The Pretender’, ‘Learn to Fly’, ‘No Son of Mine’, ‘The Sky Is a Neighborhood’ and ‘Shame Shame’. While covering Bee Gees, the band opted for their song ‘You Should Be Dancing’ whereas, they serenaded the fans with the track ‘Somebody to Love’ while covering the Queen. Foo Fighters closed their iconic set with songs like ‘Best of You’, ‘Monkey Wrench’ and ‘Everlong’ leaving the fans asking for more.
