Came across this video and thought it was great how these bands allowed members of the audience to play on stage with them. Hope you enjoy this and please feel free to share your own.

Just for the record, Dave Grohl is a helluva dude.
I want him to be my friend

The 'rockstars' that let me perform on stage with them are usually covered in glitter and wearing 6" Perspex heels.

99% of these are pre-arranged. All of the Foo Fighters' ones are (funny how every time they do, the "fan" KILLS it). And I'm not slamming on Grohl; I'm a huge fan myself.

It takes some HUGE ones to bring a random person onstage and hand them an instrument; it's a total roll of the dice. There have been a few times where it actually was a random audience member. U2 has done it; Springsteen too. They bring someone onstage, show them some simple guitar chords, and they play along with the band. Most times it works. Sometimes it doesn't.

There's a classic video from the early 1970s where The Who was playing and drummer Keith Moon was so smashed he passed out. Townshend asked the audience if there were any drummers in the house, and they brought a guy up. It might be on Youtube...lemme see...

Yes! Here, at 1:38:20. www.youtube.com...

That's ok as long as they're naked and you're a child dressed in drag. If that's not the case, then you sir disgust me.

I LOVED this. How joyful!

Dave Grohl should be the King of the World.

I'm a closet regular at your shows. I'm also a regular to my closet. I keep my clothes in there when I dance on stage with young, confused children.

That is a great video! Nick Cave's last tour with the bad Seeds took crowd participation to even higher levels! Fans were encouraged to get on the stage with him...dozens and dozens of them. He's probably the greatest live performer of 2017/18. Just an amazing man with awesome musicians.

The dynamic he has with fans is incredible. Security guys are having heart attacks when he's wandering through the crowds! He totally killed the 'fourth wall' thing between audience and performer.



The guy on guitar is Warren Ellis who's a musical genius with as much charisma and pure talent as Nick Cave.

Thank you for introducing me to this band. I don't believe I've ever heard of them before.

Yes, I can imagine the security crews having a heart attack when Nick decides to go wandering into the audience. lol
If I were famous, I'd probably do the same as him. I might ask myself after the fact, why I did. It only takes one crazy person to put yourself at risk eh?
