Keanu Reeves and his 90s grunge band Dogstar reunite to play their first gig in 20 years

That's one talented motherf*cker.

Keanu Reeves, the man who once dreamed of being a rock god in 'Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventure', has proven that he's not just a silver-screen superstar but also a real-life rockstar. 

At the age of 58, Reeves took the stage with his grunge band Dogstar for their first gig in over two decades at the BottleRock Napa Valley music festival.

Instead of battling bad guys, the A-list actor was belting out high notes while slapping the bass on the Verizon stage last Saturday. He was joined by his bandmates, vocalist Bret Domrose and drummer Robert Mailhouse. 

Dogstar originally formed in 1991, with Reeves joining the group after a chance encounter with Mailhouse at a supermarket. Turns out Reeves is not only a master of dodging bullets but he's also skilled at finding bandmates in the frozen foods aisle. 

Dogstar played together for a solid eleven years, releasing two EPs before going their separate ways in 2002. Now, they've reunited to blow everyone's minds at BottleRock. 

The 'John Wick' hero and his band have also recorded a brand new single, accompanied by a music video that is teased to drop sometime soon.

"So much to do, but rest assured, we are on it. Can't wait to share our new music with everyone. It's the most satisfying and meaningful batch of songs we've ever done," they told fans at their first live performance in over 20 years.

This comes after the band teased a new project on their official Instagram account earlier in the year thanking their fans for "being so patient".

Alongside his musical endeavours, Reeves will star in a comedy project alongside Jonah Hill called "Outcome." The film, set to be released on Apple TV+, follows the story of Reef, a Hollywood actor grappling with his past after a strange video resurfaces. 

While details about the project are limited, it's expected to hit screens in early November.

The action-packed veteran is also gearing up to reprise his role as John Constantine in a highly anticipated sequel. It's about bloody time.
