The Dave Grohl-fronted band are currently touring North America in support of their ninth studio album ‘Concrete and Gold’, which was released back in September 2017.
During the Wrigley Field show, the Foos invited Nielsen – who hails from Illinois – on to the stage to play Cheap Trick’s famous cover of Fats Domino’s ‘Ain’t That A Shame’, which the veteran band have been playing live since the late ’70s.
Grohl played drums during the cover, while Foos drummer Taylor Hawkins – who took on lead vocals – was spotted wearing a Cheap Trick vest during the gig. Watch fan-shoot footage of the cover of ‘Ain’t That A Shame’ below.
