During the final night of their joint tour on March 29 at Le Zénith in Paris, France, Slash and Kennedy brought out Van Halen as a surprise guest for a rendition of the 1979 smash hit. Van Halen’s band Mammoth WVH had been serving as opening support for the rockers on their month-long run.

“We’re honoured that we’ve been able to tour with this next gentleman and his band, ’cause I think he’s one of the most talented people on the planet,” Kennedy said while introducing the musician to the stage.
