Sources say that the Foo Fighters were two songs into their show in Heden, Sweden (Friday, June 12th) when Dave fell off the stage and broke his leg.
Grohl reportedly fell during the band’s performance of “Monkey Wrench” and remained on the ground for several minutes before being taken backstage. He told the audience, “Hey, ladies and gentlemen. I love you, but I think I just broke my leg. I really broke leg.”
He was taken off by paramedics and while this was all happening, the band did some cover songs, with Taylor Hawkins singing.
But like the true rock titan that he is, Dave came back out and KEPT ON SINGING!!!! …sitting down, of course.
The rocker told the audience, “I may not be able to walk or run but I can still play guitar and scream.”
And that, my friends, is Rock N’ Roll.
Here’s hoping he heals quickly and it doesn’t affect the rest of the band’s tour, including several stops here in Canada.
Here’s a fan video showing the whole mishap. Boourns 🙁
