Foo Fighters, Dave Chapelle cover ‘Creep’ at first MSG show since pandemic
Comedian Dave Chappelle made a guest appearance at a Foo Fighters concert on Sunday in Madison Square Garden, performing a cover of Radiohead’s “Creep” with the band in the historic venue’s first show since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Video posted online showed Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl calling Chappelle to the stage before covering the 1992 hit.
