Foo Fighters' Dave Grohl injured his leg after falling from the stage during a gig in Sweden tonight (June 12).

Grohl fell from the stage as his band performed live in Gothernburg as part of their ongoing world tour. BBC News reports that the frontman missed a ramp and fell into the gap between the stage and the audience.

His bandmates played cover versions on the stage while Grohl received medical attention.

"I think I just broke my leg," Grohl said 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."

Grohl performed the rest of the gig sitting in a chair with his leg bandaged and has since confirmed a bone was broken in the incident. Video of the moments after the fall can be seen below.



Foo Fighters recently kicked off their UK and Ireland tour at Sunderland's Stadium of Light with an epic, two and-a-half hour performance on May 25. Having also played in Manchester, the band will stop off in Ireland, London and Edinburgh before their Glastonbury Festival headline slot at the end of June.

The band played Old Trafford in Manchester on May 27 as part of their UK tour. Seeing a fan singing the lyrics to their 2002 single 'Times Like These', singer Dave Grohl invited the eight year old fan, named Frankie, onto the stage to duet on the track
