Watch Full Foo Fighters and Arctic Monkeys Sets From Lollapalooza Brazil
The alt-rock survivors and the gut-punching Brits headlined the first-ever Lolla Brazil
Last year Perry Farrell debuted the first-ever Lollapalooza Chile, and this year that massive event’s return was joined by the inaugural Lollapalooza Brazil, which took place over the weekend. Antiquiet points to footage of complete Lollapalooza Brazil sets by Foo Fighters and Arctic Monkeys, who headlined both of the festivals (joined by Björk in Chile and Jane’s Addiction in Brazil).
Both bands specialize in the sort of pummeling, shout-along rock that can reach tens of thousands of people. Foo Fighters treated their Brazilian audience members to covers of Joan Jett’s “Bad Reputation” and “I Love Rock ‘N’ Roll,” joined by the former Blackheart herself (reprising their recent joint New York appearances). For their part, Arctic Monkeys bashed out swaggering new song “R U Mine?” alongside previous highlights from the once-precocious U.K. upstarts’ increasingly formidable discography.
