Watch Foo Fighters and Weezer’s Rivers Cuomo cover a Kiss classic together

They take on 'Detroit Rock City'

Foo Fighters invited Weezer frontman Rivers Cuomo onstage at a gig this week to cover Kiss song ‘Detroit Rock City’.

The two acts are touring Australia and New Zealand together, playing a show at the Etihad Stadium in Melbourne on Tuesday (January 30).

“To us, it’s kind of a reunion,” Foos frontman Dave Grohl told the crowd of their current joint tour, adding that he wanted to “do something fucking special” for their last Australian show.

It was recently announced that Foo Fighters will return to the UK in February for their debut performance at the Brit Awards.

“How the fuck have we never played at The BRIT Awards before!?!?!” Dave Grohl said of the honour. “We’ve had a ton of firsts over in the UK – from our first festival (Reading ’95) to our first headlining arena tour (2002) to our first stadium tour (2008) – you guys have always been so good to us.”

“Why not add 2018 Brit awards to the list??!?!? Let’s make some noise,” Grohl added.

This year’s Brit Awards show is due to take place at The O2 in London on February 21.
