Dave Grohl. What a trooper, eh? The Foo Fighters frontman fell from the stage mid show during a Swedish gig this evening (12th June), breaking his leg. But, in service to rock (and also really bloody big arena shows), he finished the show anyway.
Performing in Gothenburg, Dave took the tumble during ‘Monkey Wrench’, laying prone for a few moments before telling the crowd: “I love you, but I think I just broke my leg.”
After going backstage, drummer Taylor Hawkins led the band in a set of covers. A while later, Grohl returned, leg in a cast, before finishing the whole show seated.
The band are set to headline Glastonbury later this month. Michael Eavis: buy a comfy chair for our Dave. He may need it.
