Foo Fighters Keep Playing Show Even After Sound is Cut


The Foo Fighters closed out the Memorial Day weekend event on a bill that also saw a headline set by Tom Petty And The Heartbreakers.

Foo Fighters had the plug pulled on them by festival organisers during their headlining gig at BottleRock in the Napa Valley, but that didn't stop Dave Grohl and co. from finishing their set. According to the Bay Area's The Mercury News, BottleRock has a strict 10 p.m. curfew, which Foo Fighters had reached before they were done rocking. The Cure previously had the plugged pulled on them in 2014. Instead of storming offstage or throwing a tantrum, Grohl and his trusty bandmates continued playing the song acoustically, undeterred.

At present, Bottle Rock is the sole USA date for the band in 2017, though Foo Fighters do have plenty of festival performances and shows booked around the world. Check out the video footage from their "Everlong" performance below!

This year's festival included a total of 85 musical performances and drew more than 120,000 people.
