‘Austin City Limits’ Rocks with Foo Fighters and Guests Gary Clark Jr. + Jimmie Vaughan
Austin City Limits has always featured some of the best performers from the live music capital of the world and, there were a couple of greats sharing the stage with Foo Fighters. The band recently performed a memorable set for the show and, fans can watch it this Saturday (Feb. 7) on PBS. The special show features the band playing a nearly one hour, nine-song set complete with special guests Gary Clark Jr. and Jimmie Vaughan.
The Foos took to Facebook to announce their Austin City Limits performance will air on Saturday. Frontamn Dave Grohl wrote, “Here's what I think we should do. We should play some old songs, we should play some new songs, we should have some guests.” The band did exactly that on the show commemorating ACL’s 40th Season.
Gary Clark Jr. joins the band for 'What Did I Do?/God As My Witness,' the song originally recorded in the Austin episode of their HBO 'Sonic Highways' documentary series. The Foos then invite Vaughan to the stage for a version of the Fabulous Thunderbirds' classic ‘Tuff Enuff.’ Grohl and company also deliver the goods with rousing renditions of ‘Times Like These,’ ‘Rope,’ ‘Walk’ and ‘Best of You.’
