Following Foo Fighters’ surprise Friday performance at Glastonbury, Dave Grohl stuck around for another unannounced cameo on Saturday: the Foo Fighters frontman played drums for Pretenders during their own set at the UK festival.

Grohl wasn’t the only big-name guest to join Chrissie Hynde-led outfit. Johnny Marr, who briefly played in Pretenders following The Smiths’ breakup in 1987, also made a surprise appearance during the band’s Glastonbury set.

The Pretenders’ set included songs like “Back On the Chain Gang,” “Don’t Get Me Wrong,” “I’ll Stand By You,” and “Tattooed Love Boys.” Watch fan captured footage below.
