Dave Grohl breaks leg during concert, finishes gig anyway

Dave Grohl broke his leg during a fall at a concert in Gothenburg, Sweden, on Friday night - but still managed to finish his gig.

Eyewitnesses said Grohl took a tumble while trying to jump on a ramp during the second song of the band's set.

"I think I just broke my leg. I think I really broke my leg," he told fans as he lay on the ground. "I'm going to go to hospital. I'm going to fix my leg. And then I'm going to come back. You have my promise right now that the Foo Fighters - we're going to come back and finish the show."

Drummer Taylor Hawkins took over for the front man - but Grohl later returned to the stage and carried on performing as he received medical treatment:

After the concert, the Foo Fighters tweeted a picture of Grohl's X-Ray confirming that he had in fact broken his leg.

Cue a round of My Hero.
