The Australian punk band have added some famous names to their fanbase

Dave Grohl, Josh Homme, Alex Turner and Matt Helders all went to see The Chats perform in Los Angeles together earlier this week.

The Australian punk band were performing at the Regent Theater in LA on Monday (July 8) when the famous gang turned up.

Speaking to The Music, The Chats’ guitarist Josh Price said the band were aware Homme was coming down, but had no idea who he was bringing with him. “Josh Homme said he was gonna come to the show and bring three mates,” he explained. “He didn’t say anything about bringing Dave Grohl and the guys from Arctic Monkeys! Bloody hell!”

The band shared a photo of themselves hanging out with the four stars backstage on Instagram. “A few mates rocked up to the LA show,” they captioned the post.

Homme and company are not the first big names to show up to The Chats’ current US tour, though. On Saturday (July 5), they shared a photo of themselves with Green Day’s Billie Joe Armstrong, writing: “havin a couple beers with billy joel.”

The Chats have previously supported Queens Of The Stone Age and Iggy Pop on their tours in Australia and went viral in 2018 when they released the video for their song ‘Smoko’.
