Foo Fighters and Billy Idol Deliver 'Pretty Vacant' Cover at Jazz Aspen Snowmass Festival

This past weekend, Foo Fighters and Billy Idol joined forces to give an electrifying performance of the Sex Pistols' classic "Pretty Vacant." The collaboration took place during the Jazz Aspen Snowmass Labor Day festival on Sunday, September 3.


A Reunion Performance

This wasn't the first time the two acts shared a stage. Back in 2018, they teamed up for a rendition of John Lennon's "Gimme Some Truth" at the Welcome to Rockville festival.

Social Media Highlights

Billy Morrison, Idol's guitarist, posted a photo with Foo Fighters after the performance, expressing gratitude for the experience. His caption read, "Thank you Aspen, and thank you @foofighters – it was a great day yesterday. We had an amazing show, @billyidol did 'Pretty Vacant' with the Foos, and I started a new 'Where’s Waldo' game with @joshfreese."

Billy Idol also took to X, formerly known asTwitter, to comment on the successful collaboration and even wished Sex Pistols guitarist Steve Jones a Happy Birthday.
