Watch Dave Grohl fall offstage in Sweden again

Dave Grohl pranked the crowd at the Swedish stadium where he broke his leg in 2015 by sending out a stuntman to repeat his fall.

The Foo Fighters were about to open their show at the Ullevi Stadium in Gothenburg on June 5 when a man dressed as Grohl emerged onto the stage and promptly tumbled headlong into the pit. Watch footage of it happening below.

Grohl broke his leg at the same venue in June 2015, when he fell from the during the second song. He finished the show, but subsequently performed sitting on a Game Of Thrones-inspired chair made of guitars that he designed under the influence of medication.

Dave Everley has been writing about and occasionally humming along to music since the early 90s. During that time, he has been Deputy Editor on Kerrang! and Classic Rock, Associate Editor on Q magazine and staff writer/tea boy on Raw, not necessarily in that order. He has written for Metal Hammer, Louder, Prog, the Observer, Select, Mojo, the Evening Standard and the totally legendary Ultrakill. He is still waiting for Billy Gibbons to send him a bottle of hot sauce he was promised several years ago.
