Phoenix, Mumford & Sons Cap Lollapalooza Weekend
August 5, 2013


Trent Reznor
Lollapalooza held its annual takeover of Chicago over the weekend, as artists ranging from The Cure and Nine Inch Nails to Kendrick Lamar and Ellie Goulding rocked crowds from Friday to Sunday. Those who attended Day 1 got to take in a choice selection of smaller acts such as Emeli Sandé, Father John Misty, Band of Horses and Crystal Castles, as well as veterans New Order and headliners Nine Inch Nails and The Killers. For NIN, it was the band's first set on American soil since Trent Reznor put the group on hiatus following a 2009 tour. They debuted new tracks from Hesitation Marks, and pulled out classics such as "Sanctified" and "Head Like A Hole." The Killers played simultaneously on the opposite end of Grant Park, where they offered cuts like "Mr. Brightside," "Spaceman" and "Human."

Mumford & Sons capped off Day 2, and according to an MTV News report, bassist Ted Dwane looked quite healthy and energetic during the entire set after making his recovery from brain surgery. The Mumfords busted out breakthrough hit "Little Lion Man" right away to grab their fans and get them moving, and then kept the crowd going with "Holland Road," "I Will Wait" and "Lover of the Light." They helped shut the lid on a spectacular cool and sunny day that also featured Ellie Goulding, The National, The Lumineers and The Postal Service.

By the time Phoenix took the stage around 8:30 p.m. on Sunday night, Lollapalooza had offered up nearly 150 acts over the preceding three days. But Phoenix arguably delivered the best performance of the entire weekend, according to a Rolling Stone review, as they leaned heavily on songs from Bankrupt! and Wolfgang Amadeus Phoenix over a 75-minute set.
On the opposite end of Grant Park, The Cure was busy rolling out one classic after another, including "Plainsong," "Just Like Heaven" and "Friday I'm in Love" as well as unexpected selections like "Hungry Ghost," "One Hundred Years" and "Trust." The two acts capped off a final day that also included impressive sets from Vampire Weekend, 2 Chainz and Two Door Cinema Club.
