The Foo Fighters relaunched their U.K. tour on Saturday night, September 5, accompanied by members of Queen and Led Zeppelin.

Queen drummer Roger Taylor and Zeppelin bassist John Paul Jones joined the group on a cover “Under Pressure,” a hit for Queen and David Bowie in 1981.

“I don’t know if ya’ll have ever seen a super group,” Foo Fighters guitarist Dave Grohl told the audience. “Well, this is a super-duper group!

“Let me just tell you that the Foo Fighters right now are living out our rock and roll fantasy!”

For the performance, Jones played keyboards and Taylor took over the drum throne from Taylor Hawkins, who assisted with lead vocals. 

The Foo Fighters were originally scheduled to tour the U.K. when Grohl broke his leg after falling from the stage in Sweden on June 12, forcing the group to cancel the remainder of its European dates.

The Saturday show at the Milton Keynes Bowl was the group’s first concert in England since Grohl’s fall. The band played for two and a half hours, with Grohl performing from his guitar-neck-studded throne, as he has since the band returned to touring on July 4.
