Foo Fighters’ Dave Grohl falls off stage in Sweden breaks his leg and comes back to finish the show with a cast on. See the video here. David Grohl is a BOSS!
Here is the statement from the Foo Fighters website today:
As witnessed by tens of thousands in attendance at Foo Fighters’ June 12 show at Ullevi Stadium, Dave Grohl took a nasty spill during the second song of the set. With the help of on-site medical staff who patched him up temporarily, Dave was able to rejoin the band to complete that performance.
While the full extent of Dave’s injuries are still being determined, it was confirmed at a post-show hospital visit that he sustained at least one fracture.
As a result Foo Fighters have been forced to cancel their June 14 appearance at the Pinkpop Festival as well as their June 16 show at the AFG Arena in St. Gallen, Switzerland.
Here is the tweet from the Foo Fighters and an x-ray of the damage. Rock and Roll is a dangerous business!
Thank you Gothenburg. That was amazing. pic.twitter.com/BXvuxIfVEv
