Video shows Dave Grohl downing a beer before falling off the stage at a Foo Fighters gig
There's a reason why Foo Fighters are known as one of the most entertaining live bands in the world. His name is Dave Grohl. Grohl is one of the most enigmatic and likeable rockstars in the game because of his wild on-stage antics and fan interaction. However, it seems his enthusiasm may have gotten the better of him as he fell off stage AGAIN on Wednesday. Whilst performing their first gig of 2019 at the Hard Rock Hotel in Las Vegas, Grohl broke into an impromptu extended guitar solo. Strutting across the stage, head-banging his long hair as he went, he spotted a fan in the crowd with a can of beer.
Being the relatable legend that we all know and love, Dave decided he fancied a drink. Shaking the fan's hand, he shouted over his own solo for a sip of the guy's beer. The fan eagerly handed it over.
Clearly feeling brave in front of the crowd, Grohl balanced the can atop a speaker and attempted to drink it hands-free whilst continuing his solo. That didn't go well. He knocked the can with his chin and spilled it all over the speaker. A tad embarrassed, Grohl decided he would reclaim his coolness by picking the can up and downing its remaining contents. The audience cheered as he gulped the beer down. With the crowd back on board, he attempted to climb back onto the stage and finish his solo. That's where things took another turn for the worst.
Maybe it was the beer. Maybe it was slippery. Or maybe Dave Grohl is just incredibly clumsy. Almost as soon as the frontman had put his foot back on the stage, he fell, nearly taking out a security guard with him.
Never one to moan or fuss, Grohl was straight back on his feet and on stage in seconds. Unfortunately for him, we live in an age where someone is always recording, so we can all watch his hilarious blunder in all its glory. Of course, this isn't the first time Dave Grohl has fallen off stage Back in 2015 Grohl famously fell offstage during a gig in Gothenburg.
Seemingly attempting to jump onto a runway at the front of the stage, he instead landed in the security pit. Grohl instantly announced to the crowd that he knew he had broken his leg. But as the saying goes: the show must go on. Grohl told his fans:
"You have my promise right now that the Foo Fighters, we’re gonna come back and finish this show.
"But right now, ladies and gentlemen, 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!”
Foo Fighters drummer Taylor Hawkins took over the band's set for the next hour but Dave later reappeared as though he were Jesus Christ himself. Resurrected and sporting a fresh cast, he continued the show from a chair and kept rocking on for another two and a half hours.
Quite clearly, nothing can shake the Grohl. Still, please be more careful next time Dave!
