The currently ongoing Foo Fighters-Weezer tour of Australia and New Zealand is the perfect good-times rock and roll double-header for the Antipodean summer. Two bands big on the choruses, with a couple of decades’ worth of classic rock anthems – what more could rock fans ask for?

As it turns out, there was actually a bit more in store. Dave Grohl decided to invite Weezer frontman Rivers Cuomo on stage during the Foo Fighters set to sing lead vocals to the band’s cover of the KISS classic ‘Detroit Rock City’. In response to Grohl’s , “Are you ready Rivers?’, Cuomo answered, “I’m ready to rock!” before launching into a joyous rendition of the song from KISS’ 1976 album Destroyer. Watch fan-shot footage of the performance here.

It’s not the first time (and it’s highly unlikely that it’ll be the last) that Grohl invited an interesting guest up on stage. In the past, he’s invited a fan to drum on a cover of the Queen/David Bowie classic ‘Under Pressure’ and even had Eighties pop icon Rick Astley onstage for a chunky Foo Fighters version of Astley’s anthem ‘Never Gonna Give You Up.’

Foo Fighters and Weezer play their last show of the Australia-New Zealand tour in Auckland on Saturday, February 3, 2018.
