Dave Grohl, the guitarist of Foo Fighters, pranks fans in Sweden with a fake stage fall. Grohl's stunt double actually fell on the stage.
The hilarious moment was captured in Gothenburg, Sweden on Tuesday. The three members of Foo Fighters went on stage and started playing their respective instruments.
A few seconds later, Grohl's stunt double ran to the stage while playing his guitar. He approached fans and fell off at the right side of the stage. Fans cheered over the stunt because it was Grohl's way of reminding them of what happened to him three years ago.
Dave Grohl's Concert Injury From 2015
At that time, Foo Fighters was also performing in Sweden when Grohl fell off the stage and severely broke his leg. The incident took place while Foo Fighters was singing their second song. An ecstatic Grohl miscalculated his jump and fell into the security pit.
Following the incident, the guitarist declared that he might have just broken his leg.
"You have my promise right now that the Foo Fighters, we're gonna come back and finish this show. But right now, ladies and gentlemen, I'm gonna go to the hospital, I'm gonna fix my leg. But then I'm gonna come back, and we're gonna play for you again! I'm so sorry!" said Grohl.
After Grohl went to the hospital, Taylor Hawkins, the drummer of Foo Fighters, played an hour's worth of covers for the band. Grohl, later on, re-emerged on stage from the hospital while on a stretcher to finish the concert.
Three years later, Grohl and Foo Fighters fulfilled their promise by performing for their fans in Sweden. Some of the songs that the band sang were "All My Life," "Learn To Fly," "The Pretender," "The Sky Is a Neighborhood," "Rope," "Sunday Rain," "My Hero," "These Days," "Walk," "Another One Bites The Dust," "Imagine," "Under Pressure," and "Monkey Wrench."
Dave Grohl Can't Listen To Nirvana
Grohl is an American musician, singer, songwriter, record producer, and film director. He was the longest-serving drummer for Nirvana. Grohl recently said that he still cannot listen to the group's songs partly because of Kurt Cobain.
"Still, I go back and forth and find new meanings to Kurt [Cobain's] lyrics. Not to seem revisionist, but there are times when it hits me. You go, 'Wow, I didn't realize he was feeling that way at the time," explained Grohl.
