Foo Fighters perform surprise concert at Preservation Hall

The Foo Fighters played a surprise concert on Saturday night at the iconic Preservation Hall in New Orleans.

According to the Times-Picayune, the band rented Preservation Hall to record a song for their upcoming eight album - a recording project that will feature songs recorded at legendary music studios in eight cities across the U.S. The cities include New Orleans, Chicago, Austin, Nashville, Los Angeles, Seattle, Washington, and New York.

Foo Fighters frontman, Dave Grohl, is also directing an HBO series chronicling the band's adventures in making the record. The album will be released this fall.

On Saturday, the band tweeted a photo of Grohl hanging out with two members of the famed Preservation Hall Jazz Band. That tweet immediately exploded on social media. It also served as a teaser for the surprise concert.

At 9 p.m., the Preservation Hall Jazz Band performed a "front act" for the band. Minutes later, Grohl took his guitar, strummed power chords, and began singing at the growing audience standing outside the building.

The band performed hits including "Monkey Wrench," "Times Like These," "Learn to Fly" and "My Hero." All in all, the Foo Fighters played for 90 minutes. St. Peter Street was eventually closed because of the crowd.

"We've been to a lot of great places, we've jammed with a lot of great people. But this week in this city has changed our band forever," Grohl said.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
