Foo Fighters‘ frontman Dave Grohl has unfortunately succumbed to a current concert trend: falling from the stage.

Following recent incidents with U2 guitarist The Edge and Rae Sremmurd rapper Slim Jimmy taking tumbles from the stage at recent concerts, Grohl was performing with the Foo Fighters in Sweden when he fell into the pit, severely injuring his leg.

The band was performing only the second song of the set when Grohl fell, bringing the show to a halt.

Grohl got on the mic to let the crowd know what was happening, explaining that “I think I just broke my leg again. I think I really broke my leg. So you have my promise, right now, that the Foo Fighters, we’re gonna come back and finish the show. But right now…I’m gonna go to the hospital, I’mma fix my leg, but then I’mma come back, and we’re gonna play for you again. I’m so sorry.”

Foo Fighters’ drummer Taylor Hawkins allegedly took over vocal duties, with the band performing cover tunes in the tradition of their notorious cover band, Chevy Metal, before Grohl returned to the stage to finish the show. “I may not be able to walk or run but I can still play guitar and scream.”
