Dave Grohl has broken his leg in concert - and he kept right on playing.

The Foo Fighters frontman took a brief trip to hospital before returning in a cast to finish his set.

DAVE GROHL FROM the Foo Fighters must be gunning for some kind of saintly status.

Not only is he regularly lauded as the nicest man in music, now he’s gone and carried on performing at a show in Gothenberg with a broken leg.

The band were in the middle of Monkey Wrench when Grohl suddenly disappeared from view.

Moments after the fall and being placed on a stretcher by medical staff, he addressed the crowd:

You have my promise right now that the Foo Fighters, we’re gonna come back and finish this show but right now you gotta do something right now (pointing at other band members).

According to one Reddit user who was there:

Dave Grohl fell off the stage during their second song (Monkey Wrench), due to what I assume was a random misstep. Still in possession of the mic, Dave announced that he had just broken his leg. Medics arrived shortly and carried him off the stage. The rest of the band followed him backstage but soon returned to play a few songs without him. After those few songs, MEDICS CARRY DAVE BACK ONTE THE STAGE AND PLACE HIM IN A CHAIR.

They continued to play for 2 hours after that, only taking a 5 minute break for Dave to have his leg put in a cast. Apparently they wanted to take him to the hospital but he refused, insisting to “keep playing until the doctor dragged him off the stage.” It was absolutely amazing, what a badass.

Foo Fighters later tweeted what appears to be an x ray of Grohl’s broken leg. Ouch.
