Foo Fighters played 27 songs on Wednesday night (December 11th) in front of a sold-out crowd of 55,000 at Mexico City’s Foro Sol Stadium, as the band played its first-ever live show in that country. According to Consequence Of Sound, the band — playing just its second show since September 2012 — plowed through all its hits, a number of songs from 2011′s Wasting Light album, and a selection of cover tunes from artists like the Beatles, Pink Floyd and Tom Petty.

The band covered the Beatles’ “Blackbird,” Petty’s “Breakdown” and Floyd’s “In The Flesh?”

The group is scheduled to play a second show at the venue on Friday night (December 13th).

Foo Fighters warmed up for the Mexican dates by playing a surprise gig on Monday night (December 9th) at Rock & Roll Pizza in Moorpark, California, in front of approximately 200 people.

Like Wednesday’s Mexican gig, that 23-song set did not feature any new material from the act’s next studio effort.

Frontman Dave Grohl recently dropped a few more hints about the band’s upcoming eighth studio album to Rolling Stone, saying, “We begin recording soon, but we’re doing it in a way that no one’s done before and we’re writing the album in a way that I don’t think has been done before.”
