Dave Chappelle and Foo Fighters Singing Radiohead's 'Creep' Viewed Over 400k Times

Foo Fighters treated fans to a show to remember on Sunday night, in the first concert at Madison Square Garden since the COVID-19 pandemic shuttered the storied New York City venue.

And amid performing for the crowd of fully vaccinated fans, the rockers added a surprising touch to the proceedings by bringing comedian Dave Chappelle out onto the stage.

But rather than reel out a list of jokes for attendees, Chappelle took to the stage to sing a cover of Radiohead's classic 1992 track "Creep."

In footage shared by fans on Twitter, Foo Fighters' frontman Dave Grohl is seen saying: "Ladies and gentlemen. Please welcome our lead vocalist—Dave Chappelle."

Donning an olive green T-shirt with jeans and sunglasses, the stand-up comedian then casually strolled out onto the stage and waved to the screaming crowd.

The band then started playing the familiar chords of Radiohead's track, as Chappelle said to the crowd: "If you know the words, sing 'em with me."

While his vocal skills didn't appear to be as sharp as his comedic timing, the crowd appeared to lap up the performance as they sang enthusiastically sang along.

Chappelle's unannounced performance proved to be a hit on social media, already being viewed more than 400,000 times.

There were also other covers on the night, with drummer Taylor Hawkins performing his rendition of Queen's "Somebody to Love," while the band treated fans to their take on the Bee Gees' "You Should Be Dancing."

The show proved to be a historic moment in the live music industry, as it was the first concert to be held at Madison Square Garden since March 2020.

In announcing the show earlier this month, Grohl said in a statement: "We've been waiting for this day for over a year. And Madison Square Garden is going to feel that hard. New York, get ready for a long ass night of screaming our heads off together to 26 years of Foos."

Foo Fighters had previously announced on June 1 that they were planning to hit the road for a delayed tour that would have taken place on their 25th anniversary in 2020, had it not been for the pandemic.

Their tour had previously been scheduled to commence in Cincinnati, Ohio, on July 28, before their MSG concert brought the proceedings forward by more than a month. They are also scheduled to perform at the Bonnaroo, Lollapalooza and Bottlerock festivals.

Last Tuesday, Foo Fighters performed to a crowd of 600 vaccinated fans at a smaller warm-up gig at the Canyon Club, just outside of Los Angeles.

Meanwhile, Chappelle has also had a busy schedule, closing out the Tribeca Film Festival with the premiere of his new documentary, Dave Chappelle: This Time This Place, on Saturday.
