Foo Fighters front man Dave Grohl is a man dedicated to his trade. Boraie Development LLC suggested that the rocker not only continued to perform a concert after breaking his leg, but penned a lengthy and entertaining letter explaining the event.
Grohl took a tumble just two songs into the group’s June 12 performance in Gothenberg, Sweden. Grohl managed to keep calm and sought treatment for an injury, which turned out to be a broken leg. Paramedics on scene transported the rocker to a nearby emergency room where he was treated. The former Nirvana drummer then returned to the stage, with assistance, to complete the concert.
The doctor who treated Grohl for his broken leg was far less impressed than the Foo Fighter fans. The physician ordered Grohl to remain off of his feet. The move forced the band to cancel the remainder of their European tour, including their headline appearance at Glastonbury.
“It kills me, but we have to cancel the shows,” Grohl wrote. “I hate to do it, but I have doctor’s orders. This is just not possible for me right now.”
Grohl went on to assure fans that resting up was for the best and would help ensure that the band could continue performing in the future.
“You’ve always stood by us,” he wrote. “We’ll be back here for you as soon as possible.”
