Musicians from such bands as Foo Fighters, Guns N’ Roses and the Red Hot Chili Peppers formed an “all-star” supergroup over the weekend to perform during Pearl Jam guitarist Mike McCready’s music festival. Watch fan-shot footage of the special gig below.
The inaugural Peak to Sky Music Festival was held in Big Sky, Montana last Friday and Saturday (July 5-6) with McCready curating the two days of live music.
The festival closed with a McCready-led performance in which he performed covers of tracks by such artists as Led Zeppelin, Van Halen and David Bowie (see the full setlist below).
Billed as the musician’s “All-Star friends”, the likes of Brandi Carlile, Guns N’ Roses bassist Duff McKagan, Red Hot Chili Peppers drummer Chad Smith and guitarist Josh Klinghoffer, and Foo Fighters drummer Taylor Hawkins all joined McCready for the set.
