This wasn't the collaboration that we were expecting...

American band Foo Fighters were joined on stage by Hollywood icon John Travolta at the weekend, and it was rather awesome

Back in April, the band performed in Jacksonville, Florida, and Travolta appeared on stage during a cover of ‘You’re The One That I Want’ from the Grease soundtrack.

Footage showed Dave Grohl teasing that “it gets better” during the start of the song , before Travolta makes a surprise appearance on stage.

The arrival prompts gasps of disbelief from fans, and John is seen having a brief chat with Grohl, before saluting the crowd and dancing off stage.

“It’s too much! Thank you and good night”, Grohl joked after Travolta’s appearance. Sadly, there was no singing from John on the night.

Thankfully, Travolta made a second surprise appearance with the band in New York this weekend, and this time he hung around a little longer. Watch the moment in the video above.

Grease marks its 40th anniversary this year. Travolta recently teased that he and his fellow cast members would be marking the occasion in some way later in the year.
