Vedder joined the Fleetwood Mac legend for a version of “Stop Draggin’ My Heart Around,” which Nicks first recorded as a duet with Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers.

Meanwhile, on the other side of the country, The Killers brought out Bruce Springsteen during their show at New York City’s Madison Square Garden Saturday.

“I don’t know if you’ve noticed, but me and my friends have all been sweating bullets up here all night long,” Killers frontman Brandon Flowers told the crowd. “Because The Boss is here.”

According to, Bruce joined The Killers for renditions of his own songs “Badlands” and “Born to Run,” as well as the “Mr. Brightside” outfit’s song “A Dustland Fairytale.”

The Killers also played MSG on Friday, with an opening set from Johnny Marr, who had a surprise reunion with his old Smiths bandmate Andy Rourke. They played several Smiths songs, including “There Is a Light That Never Goes Out.”

Finally, Courtney Love showed up during The Lemonheads‘ show Friday in London. According to Consequence, the Hole frontwoman joined longtime friend Evan Dando for his band’s song “Into Your Arms.”
