The brainchild of Jane’s Addiction’s Perry Farrell took over the Windy City last Friday through Sunday, every day drawing more than 90,000 fans, who came in droves to see headlining sets from Foo Fighters, Coldplay and My Morning Jacket and performances by more than 100 other artists.
Fresh from their headlining performance at Lollapalooza, the Foo Fighters have added to major shows to their fall U.S. tour. The Foos will play the Verizon Center in Washington D.C. on November 11, and Madison Square Garden in New York City on November 13.
Foo Fighters have just posted a reminder to their official Facebook page reminding fans that the band's set at tonight's Lollapalooza festival in Chicago will be streamed live on the festival's YouTube channel.
Foo Fighters have announced 13 more fall U.S. dates in October and November. The third leg of the tour will commence November 7 at the Arena at Gwinnett Center in Duluth, Ga., and will include stops in Charlotte, N.C., Philadelphia and Newark, N.J., before concluding November 16 at the TD Garden in Boston.
In a recent interview with The Sun, Foo Fighters' mainman (and drummer extraordinaire) Dave Grohl was asked about the modern production techniques used by some bands, in particular the use of drum machines.
