Olivia Rodrigo surprised fans in the U.K. after making a last-minute appearance at a local pub in Manchester. Currently on the last leg of her North American and European tour for Sour, the singer stopped by Bunny Jacksons after her show at the O2 Apollo on July 3.
Alongside visiting the pub, Rodrigo treated fans to a unique rendition of Natalie Imbruglia’s 1997 hit song “Torn.” As it turns out, fans of Rodrigo weren’t the only ones that were surprised by her appearance, as the singer’s tour manager reportedly asked the band originally playing the venue that night if they could step in. “Why yes Olivia Rodrigo, of course you can turn up at Bunny Jacksons on a bloody Sunday evening and play a song for a laugh before our 3rd set,” the band’s drummer Oliver James shared on Twitter. He added: “It was wild. They just showed up after playing the arena and her [tour manager] asked to jump on between our sets! They were all very lovely.”
Rodrigo’s appearance in Manchester comes shortly after she played Glastonbury Festival, bringing out Lily Allen for a powerful version of Allen’s “F-ck You” song in tribute to the Supreme Court in the U.S.
Rodrigo is set to continue her Sour tour on July 6 and 7 at London‘s Eventim Apollo.
