Foo Fighters invite eight year old fan onstage to sing ‘Times Like These’ in Manchester – watch

The band played Old Trafford last Wednesday (May 27) as part of their UK tour

Foo Fighters performed with a young fan at their show in Manchester last week.

The band played Old Trafford last Wednesday (May 27) as part of a UK tour leading up to their Glastonbury Festival headline slot. Seeing a fan singing the lyrics to their 2002 single ‘Times Like These’, singer Dave Grohl told the crowd: “I just saw this little kid singing our lyrics over there,” before asking the boy: “How old are you? You’re 8 years old and you know Foo Fighters lyrics? I like you. This song goes out to you.”

Grohl then invited the eight year old fan, named Frankie, onto the stage to duet on the track, saying: “What’s that? You want him to come onstage? Come on motherfucker. You better bring your dad with you too. Oh yeah, bring your mama. I’m not taking care of you, that’s for goddamn sure.”


Watch the incident below.

Dave Grohl recently joined Paul McCartney onstage in London to perform ‘Please Please Me’ track ‘I Saw Her Standing There’. McCartney was performing the first of two shows at London’s O2 Arena on May 23.

Dave Grohl’s teenage fan letter to Minor Threat and Fugazi frontman Ian MacKaye was also recently unearthed. See it here.
