Foster The People teamed up with The Kooks frontman Luke Pritchard in London last night (April 29) for a cover of Alabama Shakes' single 'Hold On' - scroll down and click below to watch fan footage.

The LA band, who wrapped up their UK tour with a third night at the O2 Brixton Academy, dropped in the surprise cover towards the end of their set. Announcing the track frontman, Mark Foster told the crowd: "Seen as though it's our last night, we're going to do something different tonight, we're going to do a cover. Welcome onstage Luke Pritchard."

The Kooks frontman then flanked the LA band on guitar and backing vocals while Foster sang the bulk of the song.

Earlier the band made a spectacular entrance, showering the crowd with silver ticker tape as they kicked off the show with 'Houdini'. Shortly after they also dropped smoke balloons over the fans during 'I Would Do Anything For You.'

Reflecting on their success over the last year, Foster later told the crowd: "A year ago we were playing the Hoxton Bar And Grill which was pretty good and now were here. Wow. I got to take a moment to take it all in."

The band went onto play hit singles 'Don't Stop (Color On The Walls)', 'Call It What You Want' and 'Helena Beat' before they wrapped up the show with a danced up version of crowd favourite 'Pumped Up Kicks'.

Foster The People played:

'Houdini'
'Miss You'
'Life On The Nickel'
'Love'
'I Would Do Anything For You'
'Broken Jaw'

'Waste'
'Call It What You Want'
