Last night Foo Fighters completed a two-night stand at Molson Amphitheatre in Toronto, where Dave Grohl & Co. honored Canadian legends Rush and Neil Young.

Just a few days after Grohl performed Young’s “Cinnamon Girl” at a motorcycle rally in Washington D.C., Foo Fighters debuted their cover of Neil’s hit on Wednesday. Dave mentioned Neil was among the band’s favorite Canadians and advised the group learned the cover an hour earlier.

Foo Fighters tour continues on Saturday in Quebec City.
