Kicking off their two-night gig at Inglewood, California's the Forum Monday night; the Foo Fighters shocked the crowd with a gathering of special guests from the enchanting Stevie Nicks to the sisters in Haim. With Grohl still fastened atop his guitar-themed throne and lacking Tom Petty, he and Nicks sang a duet of "Stop Draggin' My Heart Around" with Haim offering backup vocal assistance on the Bella Donna track.
"Ladies and gentlemen, I don't want to leave until we at least do this," the former Nirvana drummer announced to the Forum crowd as the intense feedback transformed into an excited version of Rumours' "Gold Dust Woman,' NME notes. The routine marks the second Foo-crafted "superdupergroup"--the first involving Queen's Roger Taylor and Led Zeppelin's John Paul Jones for a rendition of Queen and David Bowie's anthem "Under Pressure" during a U.K. gig.
The "Leather and Lace" singer and Haim first became acquainted in September of 2014 at Nicks' home just ahead of Fleetwood Mac's fall tour, their first endeavor including band mate Christine McVie in a total of 16 years. Haim teamed up with Nicks for a haunting rendition of "Rhiannon" later discussing the singer's lengthy career in the music industry. Nicks and the sisters reunited at the Forum where Nicks presented each of them with personal "magical" scarves.
Tuesday night will see the second of the two shows at the Forum which could've been three if Fox didn't nix the band's Emmy Award performance for Sunday night, Rolling Stone reports. Although the Foo Fighters got snubbed this time, they had a wildly successful night during the Creative Arts Ceremony for the 67th Emmy Awards, reeling in two Emmy Awards for the band's HBO documentary series Sonic Highways. Grohl and company managed to snag Emmy's for Outstanding Sound Mixing For Nonfiction Programming (Single Or Multi-Camera) and Outstanding Sound Editing For Nonfiction Programming (Single or Multi-Camera).
