Foo Fighters teamed up with Red Hot Chili Peppers drummer Chad Smith on Wednesday night (July 15) at their show in New York.

The US band played a gig at Citi Field in Queens, delivering various covers over the course of the evening: including Queen and David Bowie’s ‘Under Pressure’, Tom Petty’s ‘Breakdown’ and The Police’s ‘Next To Me’.

During the group’s encore, they invited Smith onstage to play drums for a rendition of The Faces’ ‘Stay With Me’, which originally featured lead vocals from Rod Stewart.

Foo Fighters recently announced that they’ll return to the UK in September following the cancellation of their recent arena shows and Glastonbury headline slot.

The band were forced to scrap their European tour in June when Dave Grohl sustained a broken leg at a gig in Sweden.


Now they’ve confirmed that they’ll play two shows at Milton Keynes Bowl on September 5 and 6. Iggy Pop will support the band at the gigs.

They will also play Edinburgh’s Murrayfield Stadium on September 8. Royal Blood and Honeyblood will open for that show.

A statement from the band reads: “You have always stood by our band, and we will always stand by you. Like I say at every show, we wouldn’t be here if it weren’t for you guys. And I mean that. I thank you from the bottom of my heart. And I will do everything I can to come back and give you a night to remember for the rest of your lives as soon as possible.”

Tickets go on general sale on Friday (July 17).
