Have you ever heard the saying, “break a leg”, in order to wish a performer good luck? Well, at a recent concert in Sweden, Dave Grohl, frontman to the Foo Fighters, took the phrase a little too seriously.
With the hospital a half hour away, instead of calling it quits upon learning he needed a cast, Grohl enlisted a medic to hold his leg in place while he continued the concert.

Unfortunately for the fans, because the injury called for surgery, all future dates of Foo Fighter’s European/UK tour have been canceled.
Next time, Dave, try to remember to not take it so literally when someone tells you to “break a leg.”
