The Foo Fighters set up for a surprise show at Preservation Hall in New Orleans with a simple sign reading "Private Event." Although, fans quickly discovered what was going on inside and soon the entirety of the street outside was shut down.

As Billboard reports, the 90-minute show featured "Times Like These,” crowd surfing and Anderson Cooper, who was in the audience in order to record footage for a "60 Minutes" profile.

The band was in New Orleans recording, after they announced plans for their eighth album and an HBO documentary detailing the process behind it. The series also includes visits to Chicago, Austin, Nashville, Los Angeles, Seattle, Washington, DC and New York, so, if you live in one of those places, please be prepared for a surprise show and / or traffic jams.
