Foo Fighters invited two women onstage to perform David Bowie and Queen’s “Under Pressure” on Saturday in Vancouver. The younger woman, named Madi Duncan, did most of the singing, while the other woman helped out Taylor Hawkins at one point. Victoria Music Scene reports that Duncan sings for Stranger Than Fiction. Roxanne Engli of Kamloops came onstage as well.

Madi posted on Instagram, “OH. MY. GOD.

I just got to sing with my absolute favourite band in the world. I’m only sixteen and I got to meet my heroes. I got to duet with Taylor Hawkins (even with me having a cold!) WOW!! I am extraordinarily grateful for this amazing opportunity. I had no clue that it was even gonna happen. I didn’t think it was gonna happen.

But it was a huge accomplishment for myself in a way that you might not expect.

A lot of people are aware (or maybe not) of my struggles with mental illness and have been very supportive of me throughout it all, but something that you may not know is how much Foo Fighters helped my younger self during the worst time of my life. Essentially, I can sincerely say that without them I wouldn’t be who I am today, in fact I wouldn’t be here today. So getting to sing with the band that helped me save myself was such a dream come true, and I feel like it’s a bit of closure to my dark past.

So once again, thank you to these six extraordinary guys. I can’t stop crying.
Thank you Foo, I wouldn’t be here if it weren’t for you. (Also if anyone got any cool pics tag me!!)”

Foo Fighters have frequently brought fans onstage to perform at shows in recent years. Billy Corgan was asked in a recent Instagram story Q&A if he would be willing to follow in Dave Grohl’s steps and do this at Smashing Pumpkins shows. Corgan praised Grohl recently, saying he was proud of what he has accomplished.

View recent Instagram story fan Q&A’s below, including Corgan’s response to the idea of taking the bold action of bringing fans onstage that Foo Fighters do on a regular basis.

Would you ever let a fan come on stage and play guitar on a song like the Foo Fighters have done?

“That’d be a big fan f’n no.”

Was Teagarden by Kaleidoscope the next chapter in the story of Glass?

“Every narrative and every character is connected (including Zwan and solo works).”

Is there an Adore era recording of Cash Car Star?

“Yes, and Bjorn Thorsrud and I once got in a fight over it!”

Was it somewhat difficult not to play any SP songs in any context between 2001-2006?

“Not at all. The break was welcome and deliberate.”

Schroeder doesn’t seem to say much. Is he a quiet and shy guy? Love him! He’s a total Pumpkin!

“Not at all. Super articulate, bright, and funny.”

Doesn’t reposting people’s stories encourage them filming you with their freaking phones?

“Yeah, you’re right. If I stop reposting all the thousands of phones I see each night will most likely stay in pockets.”
