In celebration of the forthcoming Cal Jam ‘18 festival on October 5th and 6th at Glen Helen Amphitheater in San Bernardino, California, there was a pop up show at L.A.’s Hollywood Palladium. The Palladium was Mecca for Foo Fighters fans who were there to see Taylor Hawkins’ band Chevy Metal and The Holy Shits, a moniker the Foo Fighters use for these surprise shows.
In their usual fashion, Chevy Metal played a set of cover songs such as Thin Lizzy’s “Jailbreak,” the Rolling Stones’ “Miss You,” and Queen’s “Tie Your Mother Down.” The crowd was in for a surprise when Queen drummer Roger Taylor took the stage for the Queen/David Bowie classic “Under Pressure.” Then Dave Grohl joined Chevy Metal for “Stay With Me.”
The Holy Shits (aka Foo Fighters) then delivered a set of deep cuts from their catalog, that included “Watershed,” “Gimme Stitches,” “Hey, Johnny Park,” and “New Way Home.” In keeping with tradition, “Everlong” closed the show.
