It has been over two decades since Keanu Reeves last played publicly with his band Dogstar, but the wait has finally ended.
Who doesn’t love seeing Keanu Reeves out in public? Hollywood’s nicest man is always a welcome sight and this time is no different.
Reeves, 58, is the bass player in the alternative rock band Dogstar, which was formed in 1991. The band eventually called it quits in 2002 before announcing their return this year.
The band announced their return on Instagram with a behind-the-scenes photo while writing: “Last set up on the roof in Lincoln Heights for @dogstarband photo shoot. Exciting news coming soon. Thanks for being so patient.”
Fans of the band didn’t have to wait long, as Reeves and his bandmates took to the stage at the 2023 BottleRock Napa Valley festival.
“He was just super positive,” Reeves told the San Francisco Chronicle. “He was like, listen to the music. Just be present in the song, and it will go from there.”
Fans chanted “We love John Wick” every time Reeves’ face appeared on the big screen, and considering they haven’t performed live in 23 years, it was a huge success.
When questioned on why the band vanished for so long, Domrose told the Chronicle: “It just organically happened. There was never a big blowout, like, ‘I’m never talking to you again!’ We took a break and it was a really long break.”

Clearly, Reeves missed his bandmates during that time, despite them occasionally getting together for the odd jam session.
The band is now working towards a tour so people up and down the country will be able to get a glimpse of Reeves and his bandmates in action.
Discussing upcoming shows, Reeves told the Chronicle: “Today was like our first kind of foray out. The band wants to play. We have a record, so we’re just kind of trying to figure out the best way to marry those two things.”
We can’t wait to see what Dogstar does next.
