Sure, the Foo Fighters could have headlined Lollapalooza, but the group is too busy playing in ballparks, Rickrolling the Westboro Baptist Church and just being the biggest rock band in the world. On Saturday, Dave Grohl and company are playing a sold-out show in Wrigley Field, across the street from the Cubby Bear where the Foos premiered the first episode of its Sonic Highways HBO series. Not content to merely bring a concert and Grohl's giant throne to town, the Foo Fighters are also opening a pop-up store in Block 37 stocked with a boatload of branded merchandise and records.
Predictably, the exclusive merch being offered at the shop is mostly Cubs-themed, because the Foo Fighters are an American band with extreme reverence for our country's national pastime (and commerce). You'll be able to snag a Foo Fighters T-shirt (or onesie) with a bear cub on it, a Foo Fighters pennant commemorating the Wrigley Field gig or a Foo Fighters pint glass emblazoned with the signature Wrigley sign. The store will also stock an exclusive poster and all of your favorite Foo Fighters albums.
The pop-up shop will be open Wednesday through Friday from 10am–8pm, Saturday from 10am–4pm and Sunday from 11am-6pm. Even if you didn't get tickets to the show, you can still rock that slick Foo Fighters ball cap and jacket.
