Another unannounced appearance! Five-time Emmy winner Dave Chappelle certainly surprised the audience packed into The Kia Forum in LA on Tuesday night for the Taylor Hawkins Tribute Concert with his performanceThe DC-born, Ohio-based father-of-three waved his cigarette in the air as he sang and, when he finished, he dropped the mic and Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl announced: 'Didn't see that one coming, did you?' But it wasn't the first time as Dave performed the same exact track last year with the 15-time Grammy-winning rock band - including the late Taylor Hawkins - at Manhattan's Madison Square Garden.

Dave Chappelle Sings ‘Creep,’ Pink Rocks Out With Queen and More Memorable Moments From Taylor Hawkins’ L.A. Tribute Concert
Ellise Shafer Foo Fighters fans flocked to the Kia Forum on Tuesday night for the Los Angeles edition of the Taylor Hawkins tribute concerts, the first of which took place in London earlier this month. Photos of the late drummer — who died suddenly in March at the age of 50 while Foo Fighters were on tour — adorned the walls of the arena, and his signature hawk logo was omnipresent as thousands of admirers came to pay their respects, many of them already sporting the limited edition merch made for the event. “It’s a revolving door of rock heroes tonight,” Foo Fighters leader Dave Grohl said during one of the many times he addressed the crowd during the six-hour concert, and he couldn’t have been more accurate. The impressive lineup was practically a lesson in rock ‘n’ roll history, including the likes of Joan Jett, Travis Barker, Josh Homme, Wolfgang Van Halen, Alanis Morrissette, Pink, Miley Cyrus, Stewart Copeland and Chad Smith as well as members of Queen, Motley Crue, Def Leppard, Soundgarden, Rush, Metallica and Black Sabbath. There was also comedic relief in the form of Jack Black and Dave Chappelle. But perhaps the most special guest was Shane Hawkins, the 16-year-old son of Taylor, who joined Foo Fighters on drums at the end of the show for an emotional performance of “My Hero” and “I’ll Stick Around.”

Joan Jett criticises SeaWorld for alleged animal sexual abuse
Joan Jett has excoriated SeaWorld at its annual shareholders meeting over its alleged animal abuses, in particular its purported methods of forced breeding.The rocker appeared virtually on behalf of PETA, calling for an end to the company’s “sordid breeding program”.She said: “SeaWorld has caused public outrage by continuing to forcibly breed bottlenose dolphins and beluga whales in order to create generations of animals who then suffer in cramped tanks, deprived of any semblance of a natural life” [quotes via Consequence].Jett continued: “In the park’s breeding program, unwilling female dolphins are taken from the water and sometimes even drugged so they can’t fight back while SeaWorld staff thrust tubes filled with semen into their uteruses.“Some must endure this process repeatedly, only for their babies to die or be taken away and shipped off to other marine prisons.“We can all agree that sexually abusing dolphins and whales who must carry out their forced pregnancies is disrespectful to these forms of intelligent life, heedless of these wonderful animals’ rights, and just plain wrong. My question is this: When will SeaWorld end its sordid breeding program?”In a statement shared with Billboard SeaWorld said that it’s “more important now than ever to educate the public about marine animals” and to have “healthy populations in accredited and certified zoological settings” such as their own.“Having a zoological program allows us to be one of the foremost experts in marine mammal research, rescue, and rehabilitation.
