Last night at the Foo Fighters‘ show in Denver, Colorado, Dave Grohl paused in the middle of “My Hero” to tell an emotional story about traveling from city to city when man near the front audience stole his attention.
“Don’t cry motherf—–, I know you’re drunk, don’t cry,” Grohl yelled after turning the audience lights on. “Are you crying right now? You’re f—ing crying aren’t you? I love you man, look at you, holy s—. You know what, f— that speech I was just going to make, I’m singing this s— to you right now. I’m gonna sing this f—— song right in your face, man to man, prison style, I’m going man to man. Me and you, I want some real tears, you better sing it with me. Don’t make me cry, because I promised I wouldn’t do this.”
Having moved up to the front row, Grohl demanded that Anthony, the crying fan now jump on stage with him. But as Grohl has done with his doctor and several others on this tour, he made him the center of attention.
“I’m gonna stand up with my broken leg and sing this f—— song to your drunk ass right now.” Using crutches for balance, Grohl hobbled up from his stool and and stood to the side of Anthony, who spun nervously in Grohl’s stool while his hero sung to him.
After a clumsy duet, Grohl told the tipsy fan “get the f— off my stage” when it turned into a hug-fest. Watch the video below.
