Foo Fighters Joined AC/DC’s Brian Johnson For An Energetic Rendition Of ‘Back In Black’

In April 2020, a few weeks after lockdown took place across the US, Global Citizen tapped several musicians for their One World: Together At Home livestream aimed at encouraging people to quarantine. But since it’s finally safe to begin reopening, Global Citizen decided to give a taste of post-vaccine life with the large, in-person show Vax Live: The Concert to Reunite the World. The concert featured several showstopping performances, including an epic rendition of the classic hit “Back In Black” by AC/DC and Foo Fighters members.

Dave Grohl and his band joined AC/DC’s singer Brian Johnson for the version of the classic rockers’ 1980 hit. The concert took place in LA’s SoFi Stadium and Foo Fighters were able to play a six-song set in front of a crowd of 27,000 fans, many of whom were healthcare or essential workers.

Along with the AC/DC revival, the Vax Live stage saw several big-name acts. J. Lo performed at the event, even bringing her 75-year-old mother out on stage to join her for a rendition of “Sweet Caroline.” Prince Harry and Meghan Markle also made a brief appearance, as they served as campaign chairs at the event. “Tonight is a celebration of each of you here, the vaccinated frontline workers in the audience, and the millions of frontline heroes around the world,” Prince Harry told the crowd.
