Foo Fighters frontman plays on after suspected leg break


When you fly all the way to Sweden for a gig, something minor like a broken bone isn’t going to stop you from performing.

Foo Fighter singer Dave Grohl fell from the stage during a performance in Gothenburg, just two songs into the band’s set.

Video footage shows him remarkably calm after the fall, as he tells fans “Right now I’m gonna go to the hospital and I’m gonna fix my leg, but then I’m gonna come back and we’ll play for you again.”

And he stayed true to his word, as less than an hour later he was back on stage despite a suspected fracture, seated and with his leg in a cast.

If he can come back from a setback like this, Grohl should have no difficulty taking to the stage for the Foos’ headline slot at Glastonbury on June 26.
