“I don’t like to say goodbye, so I just say good night like this,” Dave Grohl told the crowd during Foo Fighters‘ Oct. 12 taping for the long-running PBS show Austin City Limits. But rather than raise the proverbial roof with his bandmates on “Everlong” as they do nearly every night on tour, Grohl opted to perform the song solo on electric guitar. That rendition premieres exclusively here below, ahead of the full episode’s debut airing on Nov. 18 at 8 p.m. ET.
The Foos previously visited Austin City Limits in 2009 and 2015, highlights from which were compiled into an hour-long 2021 special. On the upcoming episode, the group performs four songs from its multiple Grammy-nominated latest album But Here We Are, as well as the vintage “Aurora” (dedicated to late drummer Taylor Hawkins), and more recent deeper cuts such as “No Son of Mine,” “La Dee Da,” and “The Sky Is a Neighborhood.”
