Fleet Foxes helped inaugurate the opening weekend of Chicago’s newest riverfront venue, The Salt Shed, located at the city’s former Morton Salt Factory. Along with a giveaway for an official one-off action figure of lead singer Robin Pecknold, the first 200 fans were treated to free signature Salties popsicles, a custom coffee and salted caramel flavored treat by local Pretty Cool Ice Cream.

The band was joined by opener Uwade on set opener “Wading in Waist-high Water” from 2020’s Shore, as well as during the encore for “For a Week or Two” and “Going-to-the-Sun Road” from the same album. Fleet Foxes also worked in a couple covers, Big Red Machine’s “Phoenix” and Judee Still’s “The Kiss,” and a couple crowd requests including “Student Debt” and “Blue Spotted Tail.” Check out photos from the event below.
