Watch John Travolta join Foo Fighters on stage during ‘Grease’ cover

He's the one that they want..

Foo Fighters were joined on stage by John Travolta last night, with his arrival coming at the most appropriate of moments.

As the rock giants performed in Jacksonville, Florida, they were joined by Travolta during a cover of ‘You’re The One That I Want’ from the Grease soundtrack.

Footage recorded by fans sees Dave Grohl cryptically teasing that “it gets better” during the start of the performance , before the Hollywood icon makes his appearance on stage.


His arrival prompts huge disbelief from fans, and he’s seen having a brief chat with Dave Grohl before he salutes the crowd and dances off stage.

“It’s too much! Thank you and good night”, Grohl remarks of Travolta’s appearance – before making his mock exit from the stage.

It’s believed that Travolta was in the area while he continues to film ‘Moose’, a new thriller directed by Limp Bizkit’s Fred Furst.

Earlier in the show, the Foos were joined by Billy Idol – who delivered an unexpected cover of John Lennon’s ‘Gimme Some Truth’.

Travolta’s surprise appearance marks the latest in a long line of unexpected guests at Foo Fighters shows, including ’80s icon Rick Astley.


The singer joined the band on stage at Japan’s Summer Sonic Festival last year, where they began playing Nirvana‘s ‘Smells Like Teen Spirit’ before breaking into Astley’s hit ‘Never Gonna Give You Up’.

“It just all went nuts,” Astley recently said of his appearance, explaining he had settled down backstage in preparation to watch Foo Fighters’ set.
“Dave Grohl came over and said hello, gave me a hug, and then half an hour later he’s inviting me onto the stage. I never met them [before], I have no idea why he’d invite me onstage.
“I didn’t know what it was all about. And then he just kind of whispered and said, ‘We’re doing your tune, but we’re gonna do it like ‘Teen Spirit”, and that was it. And off we went.”
