The "Learn to Fly" hitmaker did really team up with the legendary rockers at Wembley, performing two songs to the crowd on June 7.
Previous news about Foo Fighters and Led Zeppelin's collaboration in Foo's final gig at Wembley on June 7, was not just rumors as the two bands did team up that day. Those bands took the stage and performed two songs from the Zeppelin, which was "Rock and Roll" and "Ramble On".
Unfortunately, the Zeppelin did not arrived with all of their full members as their lead vocalist Robert Plant was still busy with his music project in U.S. The legendary rockers were only being represented with two original members, guitarist Jimmy Page and bassist, John Paul Jones.
Introducing the legendary rockers on stage, Foo's frontman Dave Grohl, excitedly told the crowd, "Tonight playing here at Wembley Stadium is an honour and if we didn't take advantage of this opportunity we'd be crazy. We knew from the beginning this wasn't going to be another outdoor show, we have been planning this for six months so we would like to welcome Jimmy Page and John Paul Jones onstage."
The show indeed became special as the rockers did some re-adjustment to perform those two collaborative songs. On "Rock and Roll", Dave swapped position and sat on the drum set, while his band's drummer Taylor Hawkins turned into a vocalist and on "Ramble On" they switched again to their original formation. The two Zeppelin members themselves kept their original duties on guitar and bass.
That day was definitely an amazing day for Dave who has been dreaming to play on stage with the Zeppelin for a long time. Expressing his happiness, Dave also told the fans, "Welcome to the greatest f**king day day of my life".
