The Foo Fighters rocked the Xcel Energy Center in St. Paul Thursday night, playing a sprawling, 22-song set to a capacity crowd.

Ever the considerate showman, Foo frontman Dave Grohl at one point stopped a song when he noticed a tired child with his dad in the pit near the front of the stage.

"Bring him up on the side, bring him up on the side," Grohl said, inviting the kid and his dad onto the stage while he finished the song.

The scene was captured by Matthew Vinge, who posted the below video on Twitter.

The Foo Fighters' setlist included hits "My Hero," "Everlong," "The Pretender" and "Times Like These," as well as a zany mashup of John Lennon's "Imagine" with Van Halen's "Jump."

There was also a cover of Queen/David Bowie's "Under Pressure" and Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers' "Breakdown."

The Pioneer Press described the show as "big, loud and fun," and judging by the response on social media, Grohl and his band absolutely killed it.
