In a move straight out of “Back To The Future”, Michael J. Fox joined Dave Matthews on stage to jam at a Parkinson’s charity event in New York on Saturday night.
Fox traded in hosting duties to join the band at the “A Funny Thing Happened On The Way To Cure Parkinson’s”: An Evening Of Comedy & Music To Benefit The Michael J. Fox Foundation”. The star-studded event was co-chaired by Fox’s wife Tracy Pollan. Katie Couric and her husband John Molner, Ryan Reynolds and Blake Lively.
Reynolds, whose father suffered from Parkinson’s before passing away in 2015, teamed up with fellow Vancouver-native Fox and his foundation in 2008 and has been a strong supporter of research into the disease.
During the event on Saturday, Fox, 55, took to the stage during Matthews’ set to add some guitar riffs to Matthews’ musical set. It isn’t the first time the actor has joined in on the musical fun on stage.
In July, Fox shared the stage with Coldplay to perform “Johnny B. Goode” during a stop in New Jersey on the band’s tour.
