Dave Grohl performed at the Foos’ July 4 gig in Washington, D.C., despite his broken leg
As promised, Foo Fighters’ 20th anniversary concert at RFK Memorial Stadium in Washington, C.C., was a go on Saturday night (July 4). It marked the band’s first show since frontman Dave Grohl‘s leg injury, which meant things were a bit different. Notably, Grohl spent the gig sitting righteously on a huge metal throne of sorts, with his broken leg propped up.
The rock wasn’t watered down in the least bit, with the Foos galloping through songs such as “Learn to Fly,” “Everlong,” “Monkey Wrench,” “Learn to Fly,” “Best of You” and many more. The show also featured Heart, Joan Jett & the Blackhearts, Buddy Guy, Gary Clark Jr. and LL Cool J.
Grohl broke his leg last month in Gothenburg, Sweden, during a Foo Fighters concert, but managed to complete that gig despite his major injury. Doctors then told Grohl he couldn’t tour for a while, forcing Foo Fighters to cancel a run of U.K. stadium shows and a headlining performance at Glastonbury.
Foo Fighters’ next show will take place July 6 in Camden, N.J. Royal Blood will serve as openers on the tour through Aug. 25 in Pittsburgh. Following that run, the Foos have concerts booked through the end of November, both in the U.S. and overseas. For a full list of the band’s upcoming tour dates, visit their website.
