Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl described his band’s current off-the-wall tour best after a unique performance of “My Hero” at their concert in Greenwood Village, Colorado last night, saying: “One of the great things about being the Foo Fighters is that you never f—ing know what’s going to happen when you come to a Foo Fighters show.”
Let’s quickly backtrack and recap the adventures the band has had on their global tour so far: Grohl broke his leg during a gig and FINISHED THE SHOW. The band had to take some time off after that, but they returned with Grohl perched upon an opulent, custom designed rock ‘n’ roll throne. Then they covered The White Stripes’ “Seven Nation Army” with Grohl’s doctor on vocals. Then they handed the mic to a fan at a Canadian concert and, to Grohl’s apparent amazement, the guy nailed all the high notes in a rendition of Rush’s “Tom Sawyer”.
Then there was last night in Colorado: When good guy Grohl noticed an absolutely inebriated fan crying in the audience as the band performed an acoustic version of “My Hero,” he dedicated the song to the man, who later identified himself as Anthony, saying:
“Don’t cry, motherf—er, I know you’re drunk, don’t cry. Are you crying right now? You’re f—ing crying aren’t you? [laughs] I love you man, look at you, holy s—. You know what? F— that speech I was just going to make, I’m singing this s— to you right now. I’m gonna sing this f—ing song right in your face, man to man, prison style, I’m going man to man. Me and you, I want some real tears, you better sing it with me. [laughs] Don’t make me cry, because I promised I wouldn’t do this.”
Grohl then invited Anthony on stage to be serenaded and join in on singing the chorus. As Grohl pointed out near the end of the video above, Anthony lived out a Foo Fighters fan’s dream night while sporting attire not fit for a most places of business: “He doesn’t even have f—ing shoes on right now!”
