Watch now: Dave Grohl hires stunt double to fall offstage for audience prank
Written by Classic Rock 93.9 on June 6, 2018
Never let it be said that Dave Grohl doesn’t have a sense of humor.
At the beginning of Tuesday night’s Foo Fighters show at Ullevi Stadium in Gothenburg, Sweden — the same venue at which the singer shattered his leg by falling offstage three years ago — the band took the stage and started to play. Then as Grohl walked to the edge of the stage, shredding, he pivoted and dramatically fell into the pit. Or so it appeared.
Actually, it wasn’t Grohl at all — it was stuntman he’d hired to take the fall, with padding placed in the pit to break his fall. The real Dave then appeared, exposing the audience trolling for the hilarious prank it was.
Foo fans can catch the fun on YouTube.
