Dave Grohl Breaks Leg During Concert, Continues Show Anyway

Dave GrohlFoo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl pulled a bonafide rock ‘n’ roll feat during the bnad’s recent show in Gothenburg, Sweden, by continuing the show even after falling off stage and breaking his leg.

During the concert, Dave slipped when trying to jump onto an onstage monitor speaker and fell straight into the security area, ending up with a broken leg.

He was carried off stage by the paramedics, but returned mere five minutes later and played for two more hours with his leg in a cast.

After the show, Dave posted a photo of an x-ray scan of his poor leg.

And ultimately, the band was forced to cancel the remainder of their tour dates this month, including a very important show at the Glastonbury 2015 festival. Dave issued a lengthy letter in which he revealed that the doctors were very serious about him needing to take a break, noting that concert cancelation was inevitable.

The Foo Fighters are delivering some of the best shows of their career on the current tour, and the leg-breaking incident only demonstrates the band’s dedication to deliver the best shows they possibly can.

There are still a lot of shows the Foos are set to perform this year, click here for a list of upcoming Foo Fighters tour dates.
