Watch Lollapalooza Sets by Radiohead, LCD Soundsystem, Red Hot Chili Peppers + More
If you weren’t able to get to Chicago’s Grant Park this weekend for Lollapalooza, or were too busy to follow along with the webcasts, you’re in luck. We’ve got video of the complete sets by headliners Radiohead, Red Hot Chili Peppers and LCD Soundsystem (embedded above).
In addition, you’ll find the sets by some of the bigger names that played earlier in the day, including Jane’s Addiction, the Last Shadow Puppets, retro soul singer Leon Bridges, the Arcs (featuring Dan Auerbach of the Black Keys) and several others.
Jane’s Addiction’s set on Saturday earned headlines due to surprise appearances by Tom Morello (Rage Against the Machine, Prophets of Rage) and Jimmy Chamberlin of Smashing Pumpkins, both of whom are natives of the Chicago area. The Last Shadow Puppets, a side project of Alex Turner of the Arctic Monkeys, walked onstage to a string accompaniment before launching into a cover of David Bowie’s “Moorage Daydream.”
This was the 25th anniversary of Lollapalooza, which began in 1991 as Jane’s Addiction’s farewell tour and played a large role in bringing alternative music into the mainstream. After going away following the 1997 incarnation, it was relaunched in 2003, when Jane’s Addiction reunited. Two years later, it stopped being a tour and turned into a multi-day festival in Chicago, where it has been ever since. The festival is currently contracted to remain in Chicago through 2018.
Lollapalooza has also expanded its brand internationally, with festivals being held in Brazil, Chile, Argentina and Germany over the years.
