Grohl stops show for blind fan
Mainman Dave interrupts Foo Fighters performance after audience member holds up sign asking for drumstick
A video clip shot last week shows Foo Fighters mainman Dave Grohl interrupting his band’s performance to grant a request to fan.
The audience member in Sydney, Australia, is holding up a sign that asks for a memento from the show – and the bandleader obliges.
Grohl tells the crowd: “We love coming here to play shows for you people.” He turns to Hawkins and says, “Give me a drumstick,” then hands it down from the stage.
He explains: “There’s a guy in the front row, he’s got a sign that says, ‘Drum stick for a blind guy.’” He then carries on with the show.
The Foos return to the UK in May for a run of shows in support of latest album Sonic Highways, culminating in a headline appearance at the Glastonbury festival. The band’s documentary series, shot during the making of the record, is released on DVD in April.
