Dave Grohl Plays Foo Fighters Show While Resting Broken Leg on Guitar Throne (Video)

The 4th of July show took place nearly a month after he broke his leg on stage

Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl proved, once again, that the show must go on.

Grohl rocked a purple cast on a broken leg he suffered after a stage fall last month, and sat on a throne made out of guitars while performing for fans over the weekend.

A 10-minute video filmed by a fan in the audience shows Grohl strumming his guitar while giving a play-by-play of the incident, starting from his fall (which he replayed on the stage’s monitors), all the way up to his hospital selfie.

The video was recorded at the Foo Fighters 20th Anniversary Blowout, in honor of the release of their first album in 1995. The festival was held Satuday at RFK Stadium in Washington, D.C., and was the first show of the band’s “Break a Leg” North American tour.

After his heavy fall during an energetic rendition of “Monkey Wrench,” Grohl had told the audience, “I think I just broke my leg. I’m going to go to hospital. I’m going to fix my leg and then I’m going to come back.”

EMTs held his leg in place while Grohl miraculously continued his performance, much to the happiness of the thousands of fans that had come to see the band perform.

“I may not be able to walk or run but I can still play guitar and scream,” he had said.

Despite Grohl’s miraculous ability to play through pain, the band was forced to cancel shows on June 14 and June 16.

Their tour will continue through November after stops in Los Angeles on Sept. 21 and Sept. 22.
