Broken foot has made Foo Fighters stronger
15 Jul 2015
Dave Grohl has spoken out about how his leg injury has made the Foo Fighters a stronger band.
Billboard have reported that the Foo Fighters frontman has spoken about how his broken foot – which occurred during a gig in Sweden earlier this year – is not a setback and has in fact made them a stronger group.
He said, “I think these have been the best shows the Foo Fighters have ever done. I think because of this situation and because of the challenge of just getting onstage to do the shows, the shows are more passionate, they're more energetic.
"When the audience sees me in that chair, they realize we're all in this together. I'm just a dude with a broken leg and I'm going to give you three hours of everything I got."
The injury was picked up during their concert in Sweden in June. It forced Dave Grohl and the Foo Fighters to cancel the remainder of their UK tour. The band were due to perform at London’s Wembley Stadium and in Edinburgh during June.
The band resumed their tour in the US on 4 July where they played a concert to celebrate Foo Fighters' 20th anniversary. Earlier this week, Foo Fighters confirmed they will continue their UK tour in September. The band are set to play Milton Keynes’ National Bowl and Edinburgh’s Murrayfield Stadium in June. The dates are 5, 6 and 8 September respectively.
