Japanese metal sensations Babymetal welcomed a special guest for their support slot at London’s O2 Arena on Sunday night. The band was finishing up their run supporting the Red Hot Chili Peppers on the American band’s U.K. arena tour. As NME reported, Chili Peppers drummer Chad Smith—with his face painted in the style of Babymetal backing musicians the Kami Band—hopped behind the kit after Babymetal performed their hit “Gimmie Chocolate!!!”

Smith busted out a drum solo before being joined by Babymetal for a Judas Priest medley that included the songs “Painkiller” and “Breaking the Law.” Another special moment came when Smith presented lead vocalist Su-Metal with a birthday cake for her 20th birthday before leading the crowd in singing “Happy Birthday.” You can check out footage of the sit-in and birthday moment below.

The Red Hot Chili Peppers will be stateside for an extensive tour in 2017. Click here to browse AXS for RHCP tickets.
