Halestorm singer Lzzy Hale joined Avenged Sevenfold on stage for a very special performance in Nashville on Friday night (12th January).
13 songs into the opening 2018 date of The Stage tour at Bridgestone Arena, Avenged Sevenfold singer M. Shadows told the capacity crowd: “Ladies and gentlemen, our good friend, Miss Lzzy Hale.”
Lzzy then proceeded to belt out the lead vocals on Avenged Sevenfold’s cover of Pink Floyd’s seminal classic ‘Wish You Were Here’, with M. Shadows telling the audience at the end: "The best f***ing singer in all of rock 'n' roll right there."
Watch the performance here (skip to 1 minute and 30 seconds for the start):
Avenged Sevenfold’s cover of ‘Wish You Were Here’ appears as a bonus track on the expanded version of their seventh studio album ‘The Stage’, which also features covers of The Rolling Stones’ ‘As Tears Go By’, Mr. Bungle's ‘Retrovertigo’ and The Beach Boys’ ‘God Only Knows.
