Foo Fighters Welcome Rivers Cuomo For KISS Cover At Australian Tour Closer

Foo Fighters and Weezer concluded an Australian tour last night at Etihad Stadium in Melbourne. The two acts collaborated at the tour finale, when Weezer’s Rivers Cuomo led Foo Fighters on a cover of “Detroit Rock City” by KISS.

Dave Grohl & Co. delivered a marathon set and lengthy encore that mixed beloved favorite, deeper dives into album cuts and a handful of covers. One of those covers was the aforementioned “Detroit Rock City” with tour mate Rivers Cuomo on guitar and vocals.

Another of those covers was AC/DC’s “Let There Be Rock.” Grohl shouted out AC/DC fans and paid tribute to the late Malcolm Young ahead of the performance of the title track from the Australian rockers’ 1977 studio album. Foo Fighters’ version of the tune was accompanied by images of Malcolm Young. “Let There Be Rock” was the finale of an encore that also featured “This Is A Call” and “Everlong.”
