Bobby Moynihan (Saturday Night Live) also joined in for “Rainbow Connection,” following his vocal performance in “Happy Feet” earlier in the set. The setlist also included covers of “Suffragette City” by David Bowie, “Bohemian Rhapsody” by Queen, “Home” by Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros, and “On The Road Again” by Willie Nelson.
