AFI @Lollapalooza - Reviews, Pictures, Video, Setlist

On August 7 AFI took the stage at the annual Lollapalooza music festival in Chicago, Illinois. They played a 4:45pm set that lasted an hour, and they played at least 14 songs. We've collected pictures, videos, and a (partial) list of songs played below.

We've added 33 excellent photos here in our AFI Ignite photo gallery. These were all taken by Mary Patterson for AFI News HQ, and the four photos in the spread at the top of this post are from the gallery. Here is a compilation of other photos we have found:

Girl's Not Grey

The Leaving Song Pt. II

I Am Trying Very Hard To Be Here

Kill Caustic

End Transmission

Love Is A Many Splendored Thing

Beautiful Thieves

Dancing Through Sunday

The Days Of The Phoenix

Veronica Sawyer Smokes

Silver and Cold

Miss Murder

Love Like Winter


  1. Death of the seasons was not played but the rest appears to be the whole setlist

  2. Oh and oddly LLW was the closer

  3. and I will verify Mitch: no DOS.

    The rest is 100% accurate.

  4. from what i've heard on youtube, they were fucking great

  5. did anyone else notice in every video from the front lines has the same security guy jamming out with the crowd?
    wish i had been there!

  6. Mary took some pretty good pictures too. Love the one of Hunter.

  7. Days of the Phoenix?! Please times x1000000 let this be coming back into the live setlists.

  8. More photos on

  10. Did anyone read TimeOut Chicago review??Please do because it is just stupid!!!

  11. The Examiner said STS and DU were excellent mid-1990s albums. ...what?!

  12. EW did the same thing. Apparently most of their performance was their mid-90s hits

  13. Also, is it me or does BeatCrave make it sound like they played Strength Through Wounding?

  14. Flash, BeatCrave may be referring to the crowd chanting STW. We were chanting for a good 5 minutes before the boys came on stage.

  15. I was standing a little way back and no one around me was an AFI fan. The crowd seemed a little tough--not really into AFI, kind of a "prove it to me" vibe. Three songs in, they were chanting A!F!I! It was awesome, watching 15 or 20 thousand people turn into dyed-in-the-wool fans in 5 minutes. But the band KILLED. This was my 5th show, and it was one of the best I've seen. IF davey can physically reach the crowd, it just takes it to a whole other level.
