MUSIC NEWS: Foo's Pregame show

Foo Fighters delivered one of the band's now-customary two-plus-hour, career-spanning sets during their performance on Saturday night (February 1st) in New York City just prior to Sunday's (February 2nd) Super Bowl in New Jersey. Playing in a 1,500-capacity tent set up at the USS Intrepid aircraft carrier and museum perched on the Hudson River, the band's third official show in the past 18 months -- not including a warm-up at a pizza joint in California in December -- featured hits like "Big Me," "Walk," "My Hero," "Learn To Fly" and more, along with extended jams on "Monkey Wrench" and "This Is A Call." One thing it did not contain, however, was any new material from the Foos' forthcoming eighth album, which is in the works now. Frontman and band leader Dave Grohl told the crowd near the show's end, "I wish I could play you our whole new record. But I can’t. It’s a surprise."
