Dave Grohl breaks leg in fall during Foo Fighters Sweden concert

June 13, 2015

Dave Grohl broke his leg after falling from the stage during a gig in Sweden Friday night (June 12).


Grohl fell from the stage as his band performed live in Gothernburg as part of their ongoing world tour. BBC News reports that Grohl missed a ramp and fell into the gap between the stage and the audience.

His bandmates played cover versions on the stage while Grohl received medical attention.

“I think I just broke my leg,” Grohl said as he lay on the ground. “I’m going to go to hospital. I’m going to fix my leg. And then I’m going to come back. You have my promise right now that the Foo Fighters – we’re going to come back and finish the show.”

Grohl performed the rest of the gig sitting in a chair with his leg bandaged and has since confirmed a bone was broken in the incident. Video of the moments after the fall can be seen below.
