Poor Dave Grohl.

The Foo Fighters frontman took a tumble on stage while performing in Sweden this week. But rather than cry like a little girl and make a huge fuss,  Dave decided to seek medical attention and come right back on stage.

"I think I just broke my leg! Like, really broke my leg.” He told the crowd after the accident.

After promising the crowds that he was on the way to the hospital but would definitely return, the band continued to play despite Grohl's absence.

You can view the video of the aftermath below:

However, despite Dave's return that day, the Foo Fighters have had to cancel two upcoming shows, The Pinkpop Festival which is on Sunday (14th June) in the Netherlands, and AFG Arena (Monday 15th June) in Switzerland.

A statement on the band's website says:

"As witnessed by tens of thousands in attendance at Foo Fighters’ June 12 show at Ullevi Stadium, Dave Grohl took a nasty spill during the second song of the set. With the help of on-site medical staff who patched him up temporarily, Dave was able to rejoin the band to complete that performance.

While the full extent of Dave’s injuries are still being determined, it was confirmed at a post-show hospital visit that he sustained at least one fracture.

As a result Foo Fighters have been forced to cancel their June 14 appearance at the Pinkpop Festival as well as their June 16 show at the AFG Arena in St. Gallen, Switzerland."

We wish Dave Grohl a speedy recovery!
