Olivia Rodrigo stunned fans in Manchester last night after she jumped up on stage to sing in a local dive bar.

The ‘absolutely mad’ moment took place on the stage at Bunny Jackson’s on First Street.

The global superstar had performed to a sold-out audience at the O2 Apollo earlier in the evening as part of her Sour Tour.

Three-time Grammy award-winner Olivia then popped in to the intimate bar and asked to sing a song with the house band.

A video shared by Bunny Jackson’s shows the Driver’s License singer belting out a version of Natalie Imbruglia’s Torn, much to the delight of those in the bar having a Sunday night drink.


Drummer Oliver James said: “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.”

He then added: “It was wild. They just showed up after playing the arena and her TM asked to jump on between our sets! They were all very lovely.”


One person said: “Nahhh not me being sat outside bunny jackson’s in manchester and heard somebody singing inside to then realise it’s olivia rodrigo as she runs past us outside with her security to her car! absolutely mad.”

Someone else asked: “Did Olivia Rodrigo really pull up to Bunny Jackson’s lass night and hop on the karaoke? I’m not going insane am I?”

And another said: “Can’t believe Olivia Rodrigo was in bunny Jackson’s and sang with the bandeoke??? What the hell lol”

Olivia hit the headlines last week when she did a surprise Glastobury performance with Lily Allen.

The pair sang F*** You together, with Olivia directing the song to those who overturned Roe vs Wade in the US.

She said: “I’m devastated and terrified. So many women and so many girls are going to die because of this. I wanted to dedicate this next song to the five members of the Supreme Court who have showed us that at the end of the day, they truly don’t give a shit about freedom. The song is for the justices.”
