FOO FIGHTERS frontman Dave Grohl apparently broke his right leg after he fell from the stage earlier tonight (Friday, June 12) during the band's headlining concert in Gothenburg, Sweden.
Grohl's injury occured just two songs into the band's set, and his bandmates seemed just as surprised as the audience when the incident happened.
The former NIRVANA drummer remained calm after the fall, telling fans (see video below): "I think I just broke my leg again. I think I really broke my leg. So you have my promise, right now, that the FOO FIGHTERS, we're gonna come back and finish the show. But right now… 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."
Grohl stayed true to his word, returning less than an hour later to finish out the set while seated and with his leg in a cast.
FOO FIGHTERS will kick off a massive North America tour in Washington D.C. on July 4, the 20th anniversary of the release of the band's first album.
