It was the same place, three years ago, where Grohl really did break his leg, forcing the Foos to cancel their Glastonbury set.
As if it needed repeating, Dave Grohl is one of the most genial rock stars around, as he displayed last night by pranking an entire stadium into thinking he had broken his leg by falling off-stage – again.
Grohl and his band Foo Fighters were performing on Tuesday night (June 5th) at Gothenburg’s Ullevi Stadium in Sweden – the very same place where the singer had broken his leg in an accidental tumble almost exactly three years before.
In the opening moments of the show, ‘Grohl’ appeared to run out onto the gangway leading out into the crowd from the front of the stage, before slipping over and tumbling headlong into the audience. Initially, there were shocked gasps – history couldn’t be repeating itself, surely?

Dave Grohl has said a big part of grunge legends Nirvana's appeal was connecting with fans and drawing them in due to how people related to their music.
Dave Grohl has hailed Nirvana's relatable music as a huge reason for the band's success and enduring popularity.
The 'Smells Like Teen Spirit' rocker joined the grunge outfit - completed by Kurt Cobain and Krist Novoselic - in 1990, a year after the release of debut album 'Bleach', and he connected with the group after seeing how he built a rapport with their fan base.
In 'Visit Seattle', Grohl has reflected on travelling to the city to audition for Nirvana, and the first time he saw them live in front of 1,200 people at a club.

Dave Grohl's best musical collaboration yet.
Who said Disney and heavy metal are mutually exclusive? Kristen Bell got the opportunity of a lifetime when 'Jimmy Kimmel Live' guest host Dave Grohl asked to jam with her on the show for the Halloween special, just because his kids are big fans of her movie 'Frozen'.
Kristen Bell at Bad Moms Christmas premiere
With Kristen dressed as Tom Selleck's Magnum P.I. and Dave Grohl as an all too convincing David Letterman for Halloween, they decided to use their meeting to do a once in a lifetime jam. Needless to say, the 37-year-old actress was only too enthusiastic to rock out with the Foo Fighters legend.

He also slapped a jet-lagged Taylor Hawkins.
The British royal family sure do make it very difficult to dislike them; especially when it comes to their most down-to-earth heir Prince Harry. He was actually one of the very first people to pay Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl a visit when he broke his leg.

According to the 48-year-old rockstar, Prince Harry dropped in on him when he was in London getting his leg fixed, after doing a stage dive in Gothenburg back in 2015 that went nastily wrong. The royal even brought him a little gift to make hospital life a little easier.

Introducing his new friend onto the stage at London's O2 Arena on Tuesday night (19.09.17), Grohl said: ''Every now and then you meet a bada** motherf****r. Will you please welcome one of the most bada** motherf*****s: Rick Astley!''

The 'Walk' frontman is more ''nervous'' about what the rest of the group think of the songs he's written than the reception they get from fans.
He admitted to Australia's '60 Minutes' ''I want to impress the guys in the band. You know, when I'm in front of a vocal mic and Taylor's in the room listening to me sing, I'm more nervous about what Taylor thinks than whether it's going to go on the radio or anything like that.''

A theory earlier this week suggested the frontman is still alive and now playing the guitar right-handed.
Nirvana’s official Facebook page have responded to the latest internet conspiracy theory that suggests frontman Kurt Cobain is still alive, over 20 years after his death. The bizarre theory emerged online this week after a video circulated of a Peruvian singer who bore a resemblance to Cobain, performing ‘Come As You Are’.
Kurt Cobain died in 1994, but conspiracy theorists believe the Nirvana frontman lives on
In the video from 2012, singer Ramiro Saavedra was seen performing the track from Nevermind on Peruvian talent show ‘Yo Soy’. Thanks to his blonde hair, sunglass and Cobain-style outfit, Saavedra bore enough of a resemblance to Cobain for some fans to suggest that it actually was the singer, who died in 1994.

A new album of Cobain's home recordings is being released on November 13th.
Brett Morgen, the director of the Kurt Cobain documentary movie Montage of Heck earlier this year, has revealed the artwork and tracklisting for the “new” album Montage of Heck: The Home Recordings, which is released next month.
The filmmaker also took the time to defend the project from the criticism that it’s received from some quarters in an interview with Rolling Stone. “Just like The Bootleg Series furthers your understanding of Bob Dylan's process, I find that Montage of Heck: The Home Recordings furthers not just our understanding of his process but represents yet another angle, another side of Kurt — an artistic outlet that he was not necessarily able to work within the context of a three-piece band.”

Roger Taylor and John Paul Jones played along on a cover of Queen's hit 'Under Pressure'.
They were forced to cancel their two Wembley enormo-gigs as well as their headline Glastonbury performance after Dave Grohl broke his leg earlier this summer, but Foo Fighters made their triumphant return to the UK with the first of three shows at the Milton Keynes Bowl – and they brought along some pretty big names to help them celebrate.
Performing the entire two-and-a-half-hour gig from a huge motorised throne, embossed with the Foo Fighters logo, Grohl announced to the crowd on Saturday night (September 5th): “We came back for you! We waited a long time to be here.”

The Westboro Baptist Church got a surprise when they tried to protest outside a Foo Fighters concert at the Kansas City Sprint Center on Friday, August 21st. The band decided to answer the church’s protests by treating them to a 'Rickroll', using Rick Astley’s 1987 hit ‘Never Gonna Give You Up’.

The Foo Fighters singer is a little nervous ahead of the Emmy Awards ceremony in September, for which his group's documentary 'Sonic Highways' was nominated four times.
He’s been officially the nicest man in rock (trademark) for nearly 20 years, but Dave Grohl has revealed that he suffers from “social anxiety” when out of his comfort zone. The Foo Fighters frontman made the comment when asked how he felt about attending next month’s Emmy Awards.
He told Gold Derby in a video interview: “It’s just going to be such a crazy night, I just can’t imagine. I think I’ll feel like that kid who is the new kid at school, the first day at school. I’ll probably just sit down, with my back up against the wall, just nervous, and waiting to see who is going to want to talk to me.”
