Foo Fighters pulled an unusual stunt at a show in Gothenburg, Sweden last night, in an apparent homage of sorts to the show the band played there three years ago, during which Dave Grohl fell off- stage and broke his leg.

Foo Fighters fans may have thought history was repeating itself when Dave Grohl appeared to fall off stage at a concert in Sweden.

The band were performing on Tuesday night in Gothenburg when the frontman seemed to plunge off the gangway.

Fans looked on in shock, but the "accident" was performed by a stuntman and the real Dave Grohl soon appeared.


Gothenberg is the same city where the rockstar fell and broke his leg during a gig in 2015.

The accident forced the band to pull out of headlining the Glastonbury Festival and were replaced by Florence + The Machine.

Grohl this week hit back at critics of the band who say they never change their sound.

The band are due to play in the UK this month, starting at the Manchester Etihad Stadium on 19 June and the London Stadium on 22 and 23 June.
