Billie Eilish has ended 2022 on a star-studded high by bringing out special guests Dave Grohl and Phoebe Bridgers for her final shows of the year.

The singer, who headlined Glastonbury earlier this year, is capping off her year with three headline shows at Los Angeles’Kia Forum, with the final taking place tonight (December 16).

Last night saw Eilish invite Bridgers on stage to perform her hit ‘Motion Sickness’, while an emotional moment came when Grohl arrived on stage for a rendition of Foo Fighters‘ ‘My Hero’.

Grohl’s performance doubled up as a tribute to the late Taylor Hawkins, with the singer explaining how he had hosted a Grammys viewing party earlier this year and became emotional upon realising that Eilish was wearing a t-shirt printed with a Hawk logo in tribute to the late Foo Fighters drummer. Hawkins died while the band were on tour in Bogota, Colombia, in March this year.

Meanwhile, it was confirmed earlier this week that Eilish will headline Reading & Leeds festival next year, alongside the likes of Sam FenderLewis CapaldiFoalsThe Killers and Imagine Dragons.

The festival returns next summer in its traditional August Bank Holiday Weekend slot, marking the first ever headline slots for Fender, Eilish, Capaldi and Imagine Dragons. It will mark the second time that Foals and The Killers have headlined the event.

Other leading acts on the line-up include the likes of Wet Leg, Bicep, Becky Hill, Slowthai, Tion Wayne, Central Cee, Muna and Steve Lacy.
