Watch Dave Grohl Play Foo Fighters’ 20th Anniversary Blowout From A Giant Motorized Throne

Dave Grohl broke his leg during a gig in Sweden last month, and although he managed to tough it out like a champ and finish the show, the Foo Fighters were forced to cancel all of their upcoming tour dates in Europe, including a headlining set at Glastonbury. Fortunately, Dave Grohl made it out to the Foos’ big 20th anniversary 4th of July blowout at Washington, D.C.’s RFK Stadium to perform for the first time since his injury. Under doctor’s orders to keep his leg elevated and sporting a purple cast, Grohl played the entire show ensconced in a giant motorized throne, and after opening with “Everlong,” he told the story of the fall and played a few clips of the incident, asking “How many of you motherfuckers saw that on Youtube?” Apparently he first conceived of and designed the throne while high on painkillers and declared “I’m not missing this show for the world, you build me that throne and we’ll play a Washington, D.C. rock concert.” And he did! The eclectic mix of Buddy Guy, Gary Clark Jr., Heart, Joan Jett & The Blackhearts, LL Cool J featuring DJ Z-Trip, Trouble Funk, and Trombone Shorty & Orleans Avenue all also played at the event. Watch some footage of the Foo Fighters performance and check out the setlist below.
