“As if Dave Grohl hadn’t already sealed his place in rock ‘n roll history, the Foo Fighters’ front man made a statement Friday after breaking his leg during a concert and returning to finish the show,” reports CNN.
According to the band’s website, “As witnessed by tens of thousands in attendance at Foo Fighters’ June 12 show at Ullevi Stadium [in Gothenburg, Sweden], 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,” the statement said.
After breaking his leg he later finished the show performing from a chair.
Reports Time magazine, later the band…confirmed that “Grohl suffered a fracture that will require Foo Fighters to cancel two shows. The band’s June 14 appearance at Pinkpop Festival and June 16 concert in Switzerland have been postponed.
What follows is the moment Grohl falls off the stage from a video we found on YouTube, and his addressing the crowd shortly thereafter. The video just repeats itself after the 1:20 mark.
Here’s Grohl back on stage, singing after his broken leg has been attended to by medical personnel:
