Foo Fighters performed to the first full-capacity maskless audience at the Madison Square Garden, New York as a part of their delayed 25th-anniversary tour, but it was Dave Chappelle’s surprise appearance that made the headlines. The stand-up comedian covered Radiohead’s hit single ‘Creep’ along with the band’s frontman Dave Grohl and got everyone swaying to the tunes.

Though Foo Fighters got slammed for asking for vaccination proof at the venue gates, it was Chappelle’s surprise appearance that successfully diverted everybody’s attention. The 47-year-old comedian, who has also earlier covered the same song, was then soon trending on Twitter as the Internet could not get enough of his awesomeness. This was the first time when the venue hosted a full-capacity event since March 2020.

Chappelle had tested positive for Covid-19 in January 2021 and it was reported that he had canceled his series of shows that were supposed to take place in Austin, Texas. It now seems the renowned funny man got vaccinated before he performed at the Foo Fighter’s event. The comedian became hot gossip on Twitter as he left the packed venue asking for more. Chappelle was also in news most recently for the vaccine-mandatory world premiere of his documentary ‘Dave Chappelle: This Time This Place’ at the Radio City Music Hall. The venue had opened to the public for the first time since Covid hit.

Speaking about the event, Foo Fighters’ Dave Grohl said in a press statement, as reported by the website AVClub, “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.

‘It was pure awesomeness watching the legend’

A lot of social media users thronged to Twitter to praise Chappelle’s surprise performance at the Madison Square Garden event. One user posted, “The Foo Fighters just brought out Dave Chappelle to sing “Creep” for the first concert at Madison Square Garden since covid. Incredible.” The next one added, “I’m not a big fan of the Foo Fighters or Dave Chapelle and this isn’t the best cover of this song, but something about seeing a packed MSG singing along to Radiohead’s “Creep” gave me all the feels.”
One individual shared, “I didn’t have Dave Chapelle singing Creep with The Foo Fighters on my bucket list till now.” Another tweeted, “Holy. Shit. @DaveChappelle performed with the @foofighters and life is good again.” Meanwhile, another noted, “Seeing Dave Chapelle come on stage with the Foo Fighters and sing Radiohead’s Creep is where my life peaked.” One said, “Dave Chapelle coming out at a Foo Fighters concert to sing Creep was probably one of the last things I expected to see happening this year…and yes, that happened.” Another concluded, “It was pure awesomeness watching the legend @DaveChappelle sing @radiohead with the sold out @foofighters tonight at @TheGarden.”
