The show, this past Saturday night, January 10th, served as Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl's birthday bash which included Jack Black leading the audience in a rendition of "Happy Birthday" for Grohl, according to Loudwire.
The Foo Fighters kicked off the show by bringing out KISS frontman Paul Stanley for renditions of the "Destroyer" classics 'Detroit Rock City' and 'Do You Love Me'. They were next joined on stage by former Guns N' Roses guitarist Slash and Tenacious D's Jack Black and Kyle Gass.

The Foo Fighters then rocked "Congregation" and "Walk" before being joined by Alice Cooper to perform two of his biggest hits, "School's Out" and "I'm Eighteen".
The next special guest to join the Foo Fighters was Nick Oliveri for a cover of Roky Erickson's "Two Headed Dog". A few songs later the band brought out Zakk Wylde for covers of the Black Sabbath classic's "N.I.B." and 'Fairies Wear Boots'.
