Foo Fighters and Neil Young Perform Together at a Concert in New York City's Central Park

Mid-set, alongside Crazy Horse, Neil Young announced that “We’re joining forces up here,” just as Foo Fighter's Dave Grohl and Dan Auerbach graced the stage to collaborate with Young on an adrenaline and feedback fuelled rendition of "Rockin’ in the Free World."

Neil Young, Dave Grohl and the rest of the Foo Fighters joined Band of Horses and The Black Keys among others to perform on the Grand Lawn at Central Park in New York City. This was all in aid of the Global Citizen Festival which supports a plethora of charities including World Vision and World Food Program USA.

As well as bands and solo artists, the event held brief speeches between sets from outspoken celebrities such as Selena Gomez and Olivia Wilde of House and TRON:Legacy fame. Dave Grohl seemed to love every second of their performance, lamenting however, that it may be a while before they take to the stage again, saying “We don't have any shows after this. This is where we play as many songs as we can in a short period of time, because, honestly, I don't know when we're gonna do it again”, as reported by Rolling Stone.

The Foo Fighter's set list included classic tracks such as “Times Like These”, “Everlong” and “Learn to Fly” as well as some newer material from their latest album Wasting Light, such as “Walk” and “These Days”. 60,000 of the 71,000 hopeful fans that registered for tickets were lucky enough to see the 5 hour concert held on Saturday (29/09/2012).
