Dave Grohl Brings Up ‘Crying Grown Man’ From Audience to Sing ‘My Hero’ at Foo Fighters Show
It seems like every gig on Foo Fighters' current tour has a "Good Guy Grohl" moment, where frontman Dave Grohl goes above and beyond to please his adoring fans. Last night (Aug. 16) at the Fiddler's Green Amphitheatre in Colorado, it was a "crying grown man" who benefitted from Grohl's generosity.
While playing an acoustic rendition of "My Hero" out on the stage's runway portion that extends into the audience, Grohl asked the house lights to be turned on so he can see the crowd. In the middle of the song he started to make a speech about the different cities the band plays when he spotted an apparently inebriated man in tears.
As transcribed by Alternative Nation, Grohl then said:
Don’t cry motherf---er, I know you’re drunk, don’t cry. Are you crying right now? You’re f---ing crying aren’t you? I love you man, look at you, holy s--t. You know what, f--- that speech I was just going to make, I’m singing this s--t to you right now. I’m gonna sing this f---ing 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.”
Get closer, get front row! Where are you going motherf---er? Get back here! No you get here, front row. I’m going to sing this to your crying grown man ass right now. Front row, against the rail, right here, get in here motherf---er, you drunk emotional mess!
Grohl then saw the guy was actually making his way up toward the stage and invited him to come up. As you'll see in the video above, the Foo Fighters frontman had the fan (named Anthony) sit down and then sang right in front of his face, even duetting with him on the chorus.
