Dave Grohl Fell Off a Stage, Broke His Leg, and Finished a Concert
The Foo Fighters were performing at a music festival in Sweden Friday night, when Dave Grohl tripped and fell off the stage. It was pretty bad, he broke his leg in at least one place.
They were just two songs into the gig when it happened. Instead of cutting things short, he had the medics treat his leg, and then he came back out and finished the entire three-hour set.
While Dave was still offstage, the band started playing "Under Pressure" by Queen and David Bowie. Then Dave came out in the middle of the song in a wheelchair, and did the rest of the show either sitting or standing on crutches.
After the show, Dave Tweeted a photo of his X-ray, which clearly shows the break. As metal as that was, the band was forced to cancel two shows this week due to the injury.
