Stranger Things star unrecognisable in 'disguise' as he performs onstage – can you guess who it is? | The Sun

A STRANGER Things star has been spotted looking unrecognisable in a "disguise" as he performed alongside his band.

The actor – who is best known for his role in the Netflix series – took to the stage in Chicago, USA, at the Grant Park Music Festival.


Joe Keery, who plays Steve Harrington in the hit sci-fi drama, looked wildly different from his character as he stood with his band.

Performing as his musical alias Djo – Joe, 30 – wore a long brunette wig and a dark pair of sunglasses as she rocked out on his guitar.

The star kept it casual with a white shirt over a pink t-shirt and slack trousers – completing his look with a simple gold chain.

He looked worlds away from Steve – who is known for his 1980s style slicked back long locks in Stranger Things.

Joe has previously opened up about wearing a disguise on stage – as he enjoys "throwing people off the scent that it's him".

He told UNILAD: "Well, initially it was just a way to kind of throw people off the scent that it is me, and to kind of detach myself from the connection – or just music from the connection – to the show or anything like that.

"And what it's turned into is just a really fun character to perform onstage live. And it allows me to be less self-conscious, I think – and it's sort of like an element of surprise, too."

It comes after Joe admitted that he felt season 4 of the popular Netflix drama "is a lot scarier than previous years".

Last year, Joe was also seen looking VERY different from his Stranger Things character for another film role in Netflix horror Spree.

Viewers see Keery transform into the murderous Kurt Kunkle who kills his ride share passengers with poisoned water.

Keery's trademark locks are often greasy in Spree, as the star is covered in blood and gore at one point.

Netflix fans could not believe how different the actor was from his star making role on Stranger Things.

One Twitter user wrote: "Joe Keery in spree was kinda the most surprising performance of the year."

Another added: "I'm watching spree right now, Joe Keery is literally terrifying in this movie… I'm so uncomfy."

And a third said: "I had no expectations but I really enjoyed SPREE. Found footage storytelling at its best. So funny, so shocking. Joe Keery is phenomenal."
