Cage the Elephant in Salt Lake City (2011)
During their 2011 tour opening for the Foo Fighters, Cage the Elephant suddenly needed help when drummer Jared Champion suffered a ruptured appendix on tour. Enter Grohl. "I got a phone call and it was Dave Grohl, and he said, 'So I heard you guys need a drummer,'" lead singer Matthew Schultz recently told Rolling Stone. Grohl then surprised the crowd when he joined the band during their opening set in Salt Lake City to play on songs like "In One Ear" and "Shake Me Down." "First it was really, like, bittersweet," Schultz continued. "'Cause at the same time we were worried that Jared was gonna die. On the other hand, we were like, 'Oh my God we're playing with Dave Grohl!'"
