I thought it was pretty epic on Saturday night when Kristen Wiig came out for her final bow with the other Saturday Night Live cast members and Arcade Fire played “She’s a Rainbow” and then “Ruby Tuesday” for the popular actress. It was an epic end to the season of SNL and also just a great way to send off such an important cast member. Turns out, that was only the beginning of the night for the comedian and cast.
After the show, Wiig joined fellow cast members and some dear friends, including Amy Poehler, Jon Hamm, Rachel Dratch, and Chris Kattan to celebrate the end of her era on SNL. The official party headed over to the Rockefellar skating rink, where popular rock band the Foo Fighters awaited them. Dancing and partying ensued, and according to US Weekly, the celebrities all joined together for some singing and dancing.
Mick Jagger, who hosted the season finale episode, took the stage with the Foo Fighters to play “Miss You.” Afterward, Amy Poehler even took stage to do her own cover, getting really into a rendition of “Bad Reputation” by Joan Jett. After the Foo Fighters did their thing, the lady of the evening took the stage in leather concert attire and cradling a beer to sing “I Love Rock and Roll.” Perhaps “Goodbye Yellow Brick Road” would have been the more fitting ending chords, but it sounds like one hell of a party, nonetheless.
