The Anthem is a brand new venue in Washington, D.C. and instead of just quietly opening with a normal tour route, they decided to invite Foo Fighters back to their hometown. 

While the venue doesn't actually open until October 12, DC101 and iHeartRadio decided to make a special experience for fans, friends and family. While the Foo Fighters would already be set up for the show on October 12, why not crash their dress rehearsal? Well, we did a lot more than that. 

The first hour of the show was broadcasted on all iHeartRadio alternative stations. So even if you weren't lucky enough to win your way in, you could hear it all. No FOMO here. 

Ending the night with #Everlong & wouldn't have it any other way 🀘🏻 #FooFAnthem
