Foo Fighters Welcome Joe Walsh & Dr. Lew Schon At Fenway Park

On Sunday night Foo Fighters continued their current summer run with a show at Fenway Park in Boston. The rock act, who are touring in support of their 2017 release Concrete And Gold, welcomed a rock icon and the return of “Dr. Lew” during their career-spanning concert at the home of the Boston Red Sox.

The six-piece act got their night going on Yawkey Way with “All My Life” from their 2002 album One By One. From there, the Foos would work their way through a cross-section of material from eight of their studio albums delivering fan-favorites like “Learn To Fly,” “The Pretender,” “My Hero,” “Monkey Wrench,” “Best Of You,” “Times Like These” and “Everlong.” Two-thirds of the way through the band’s 20-song main set they brought out their first guest of the night as they were joined by orthopedic surgeon Dr. Lew Schon. “Dr. Lew,” who helped repair Dave Grohl’s broken leg in 2015 and sat-in with them that summer at Fenway, reprised his role last night assisting on a cover of the Ramones “Blitzkrieg Bop.” “Dr. Lew” coincidently also has ties to the jam scene, as he is the father of Pigeons Playing Ping Pong guitarist Jeremy Schon.

After a take on Queen’s “Under Pressure,” Grohl & Co. welcomed their second guest of the night as Joe Walsh emerged. Walsh, who begins a three-show run with the Eagles tomorrow night in Pittsburgh, fronted the band on a take on one of his signature songs — “Rocky Mountain Way.”
