The band played a surprise show at the LA Forum for Dave Grohl's 46th birthday

Alice Cooper joined Foo Fighters live on stage last night at the LA Forum at the band’s surprise show marking frontman Dave Grohl’s 46th birthday.

Special guest Cooper took to the stage to sing renditions of his classic tracks ‘School’s Out’ and ‘I’m Eighteen’. You can watch footage of both performances beneath.

Other guests during the evening included Slash, Jack Black and Kyle Gass of Tenacious D, David Lee Roth, Nick Oliveri and more.


Grohl and co are about to embark on a world tour in support of new album ‘Sonic Highways’, starting in South America before coming to the UK in March. Support at these shows will come from Iggy Pop and Royal Blood.

Foo Fighters play:

Sunderland Stadium Of Light (May 25)
Manchester Emirates Old Trafford (27)
Ireland Slane Castle (May 30)
London Wembley Stadium (June 19, 20)
Edinburgh Murrayfield Stadium (23)

Last month, it was reported that up to 1,000 Foo Fighters fans in Cesena, Italy are planning to simultaneously play ‘Learn To Fly’ in order to catch the attention of the band and get them to perform near them. It followed a precedent set by Foo Fighters fans in Richmond, Virginia, who crowdfunded the city’s first Foo Fighters concert in 16 years.

Foo Fighters released ‘Sonic Highways’ in November, but lost out on the UK Number One spot to Pink Floyd.


Speaking about the placing, Grohl was ambivalent about not reaching the top spot. “I mean if we’re going to take a Number Two to anybody, I’ll take it to Pink Floyd you know what I mean? I mean at this point you have to imagine we’re not really that concerned about that sorta thing cause we got what we got and its really great,” he said.
