WATCH: Rick Astley Joins Foo Fighters At The O2 London
20 September 2017, 10:30
The 80s legend joined the rockers for a performance of his Never Gonna Give You Up anthem during their mammoth three hour set.
Foo Fighters were joined on stage by Rick Astley at The O2, London last night (19 September).
The Learn To Fly rockers played a 27-track set, inviting the British singer to join them towards the end of their night to play a mash-up of Nirvana's Smells Like Teen Spirit and Astley's 1987 anthem, Never Gonna Give You Up.
Dave Grohl asked why the Newton-le-Willows legend was yelling so much, to which Astley shouted: "Because I'm nervous!". Watch it above.

Their three hour performance included hits from across their career, as well as new Concrete and Gold tracks such as The Sky Is A Neighbourhood, La Dee Da, Sunday Rain and Run.
The 80s singer first took to the stage with the rockers at Summer Sonic Festival in Japan, whipping the crowd into a frenzy by screaming "COME ON YOU MOTHERFUCKERS!"
