A number of special guests were booked ahead of time, namely Rush’s Geddy Lee and Alex Lifeson, Led Zeppelin, Nirvana, The Police, and Queens Of The Stone Age. In a special moment, AC/DC’s Brian Johnson and Metallica’s Lars Ulrich joined the Foo Fighters on stage to perform “Back In Black” and “Let There Be Rock.”
