Later in the night, the famed rocker performed a high-powered drum DJ set, showing off his signature moves as he created an electrifying atmosphere for the packed nightclub with his one-of-a-kind set and onstage aura. Barker continued to drop heavy hip-hop beats throughout the night by artists including Skrillex, Lil Wayne and Drake while playing effortlessly along on the drums. At the end of his set, Barker tossed his drumsticks into the audience for a lucky fan as the rest of the club-goers cheered on.
