Foo Fighters Prank Fans With Fake Stage Fall

June 8, 2018

Foo Fighters pulled a prank on fans Tuesday in Gothenberg, Sweden, where Dave Grohlseverely broke his leg after falling off the stage three years ago.

In the opening moments of the band’s return to Gothenberg’s Ullevi Stadium, a fake “Dave Grohl” joined his bandmates onstage and ran out onto the catwalk, where the stunt double slipped and fell into the area between the crowd and the stage.

Rather than keeping fans confused, the band kept playing following the fall as Grohl quickly made his way onstage to reveal the ruse.

The elaborate stunt was a nod to the June 2015 concert where Grohl, two songs into Foo Fighters’ Gothenberg show, miscalculated a jump and plunged into the security pit.
