You never know what’s going to happen next at a Foo Fighters show. Dave Grohl may cry (as he did recently at Chicago’s Wrigley Field concert), he may serenade a crying fan (as he did in Colorado in August), he may play a guitar with his broken leg (as he did in Sweden back in July).
Or, Grohl may bring Queen drummer Roger Taylor and Led Zeppelin bassist John Paul Jones onstage to perform David Bowie and Queen’s classic collaboration “Under Pressure.”
Said Grohl at the band’s Sept. 5 show in Milton Keynes, England: “Something nice and special just happened an hour and a half ago. A couple of our friends turned up and we thought it’d be nice to do a song together … Now look, I don’t know if y’all have ever seen a supergroup. This is a ‘superdupergroup.’ I don’t even know what to say because this kind of s–t doesn’t happen every day. Let me just tell you that the Foo Fighters, right now, are living out our rock n’ roll fantasy with you tonight.”
Jones played keyboards and Taylor took over the drumming (while Foo Fighters drummer Taylor Hawkins sang vocals).
Foo Fighters headed to the U.K. over the weekend for three huge stadium shows before resuming their North American tour on September 11th in Vancouver, Canada.
The North American trek will conclude on October 17th in Anaheim, California, after which the band will head back to Europe for two more weeks of shows in November.
