Foo Fighters perform with tribute band at show

Rockers Foo Fighters invited their own group's tribute band to take to the stage with them at their U.K. show on Wednesday (10Sep14).

The Everlong hitmakers played to a crowd of about 600 fans at Brighton, England's Concorde 2 venue, under the moniker of The Holy S**ts.


Before they began to play their 1995 hit Big Me, frontman Dave Grohl announced that the performance was dedicated to a U.K. Foo Fighters tribute band who were enjoying the gig from the audience.


Grohl joked, "We don't wanna s**t the bed in front of the UK Foo Fighters. They'll be like, 'That's not how it goes."


Later, he even invited the cover band's lead singer to join them on stage for their performance of White Limo.


The setlist for the special concert included older tracks that they usually don't perform live, including I'll Stick Around, See You, and Up in Arms.


The Foo Fighters are set to play two more tiny shows before headlining the closing ceremony for the Invictus Games on Sunday (14Sep14).
