22-year-old Joey McClennan played to 40,000 fans
Dave Grohl invited one lucky lookalike fan on stage to perform with Foo Fighters – before cooling him down by pouring water over him. Check out photos and footage below.
The band were performing at the Suncorp Stadium in Brisbane when Grohl handpicked 22-year-old Aussie Joey McClennan to come up on stage with the band.
Joey was holding a sign asking to play ‘Monkey Wrench’ with the band.
“Come on kid, get on up here right now,” said Grohl. “Are you sure you can play it?” asked Grohl. “The last thing you want to do is come up here and shit the bed in front of 40,000 people in your home town.”
After pouring cold water over the fan during his impressive performance, Grohl told him: “Joey, I like your style… black T-shirt and black pants.”
Last weekend, Grohl had the perfect reaction after an excited fan invaded the stage during a performance in Perth.
As they closed their NIB Stadium set with ‘Everlong’, Foo Fighters fan Jevon made his way on stage – and headed straight to give Grohl a hug.
But rather than being startled by the exchange, Grohl immediately reciprocated the hug – before jokingly telling Jevon to “get the fuck off my stage”.
After Jevon left, Grohl continued to dedicate the track to him – offering several shout outs to “Jevon with a J” as he brought the show to a close.
Meanwhile, it was recently announced that Foo Fighters will return to the UK next month for their debut performance at the Brit Awards.
“How the fuck have we never played at The BRIT Awards before!?!?!” Dave Grohl said of the honour.
“We’ve had a ton of firsts over in the UK – from our first festival (Reading ’95) to our first headlining arena tour (2002) to our first stadium tour (2008) – you guys have always been so good to us.
“Why not add 2018 Brit awards to the list??!?!? Let’s make some noise.”
