Were you at the Foo Fighters show Sunday, October 9, at the Pepsi Center in Denver?

Bet you didn’t make it to work on Monday morning because the Foo Fighters played until after Midnight, their encore was five songs.

Dave Grohl told the crowd at the beginning of their set that they were going to play for two-and-a-half hours because they have a lot of “*#&@ing songs.” And they did, they played all the songs I could think of including; “The Pretender,” “Learn To Fly,” “Best of You,” “Times Like These,” “My Hero” and new ones from their Wasting Light album like “Rope” and “Walk.”

The opening acts jammed too. Mariachi El Bronx is a unique punk/mariachi band out of southern California. Also known as The Bronx, they played traditional mariachi music with a punk attitude, dressed in black and silver matching suits complete with violin and horns. The band released their second album of mariachi music in August called Mariachi El Bronx.”

Cage The Elephant from Bowling Green, Kentucky were the second act and lead singer Matthew Shulz looked like he was channeling Jim Morrison as he slinked around the stage like a warrior at a Pow Wow. He asked the Denver crowd, “How do you breathe up here?, You’re all freaks….but I like freaks.” After the last song, Shulz collapsed on stage while the other band members walked off (another Morrison moment).

When the Foo Fighters left the stage before their encores, a green-hued night-vision camera captured them backstage deciding how many more songs to play; one….two….no three. Then Taylor Hawkins and Pat Smear raised it to five more songs. Then Dave Grohl appeared on the smaller stage in the middle of the Pepsi Center where he played three acoustic numbers before being joined by the other members of the band.

They covered Pink Floyd’s “In The Flesh” and Tom Petty’s “Breakdown.” See the intro to their final encore, “Everlong,” in the video below.
