Just when we thought Keanu Reeves couldn’t be any more talented, he surprised fans by reuniting with his grunge band from the ’90s over the weekend.

The Canadian actor took the stage at BottleRock festival in California on Saturday, playing with Dogstar for the first time in over 20 years.

Fans were shocked to see Reeves trade in his John Wick ammo for an electric bass, all while still killing his performance.

“keanu reeves playing bass on a stage in 2023 has altered my brain chemistry forever,” tweeted one fan.

For those who didn’t know, the Toronto-raised celebrity formed Dogstar with fellow actor and musician Robert Mailhouse after they met at a grocery store and became friends. Reeves’ main positions in the band were bassist and backup vocalist.

The band released two albums: Our Little Visionary in 1996 and Happy Ending in 2000. They sadly split up in 2002.

In a recent interview with Billboard, Reeves opened up about how he missed performing with the band.

“I missed playing together, I missed writing together, I missed doing shows together. It’s something I’ve always missed,” he said. “We came to a spot where we weren’t playing anymore, and I missed it… Once we started to play, and it felt good, and really positive and creative, that’s when it was like, ‘Okay, let’s make this happen.’”

And it looks like fans are fully in support of this reunion, sharing videos of Reeves rocking out on stage.

“Every time they show Keanu on the jumbo screen there are bursts of screams — and not just from me 😂🤩” tweeted San Francisco Chronicle senior editor Mariecar Mendoza.

Maybe Canadians will see Reeves on a stage near them soon.
