Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl nearly booked himself a return trip to the “rock throne” he used onstage in 2015 after breaking his leg during a concert in Sweden. This time, Grohl got tripped up momentarily during the Foos’ recent set at the Welcome To Rockville festival in Jacksonville, Florida. In footage posted online, Grohl can be seen stumbling over a speaker onstage, but this time he’s able to brace himself with his arms instead of hitting the ground below.
Grohl must have flashed back to that moment in June 2015 when he tumbled from a stage in Gothenburg, Sweden, because he returned to the mic and told the Jacksonville crowd, “I almost just broke my f**king leg over there. Here’s the way I look at it, when you get that close to breaking your fucking leg, that means it’s a good show.”
Grohl was unable to walk or run for several months as a result of that injury in 2015, so he performed a large stretch of Foo Fighters shows on a massive light-up throne constructed for him by the Foos’ road crew.
