NME Festival blog: Watch Dave Grohl invite a Foo Fighters fan onstage to play ‘Monkey Wrench’
Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl invited a lucky fan on stage to play ‘Monkey Wrench’ on Thursday night (January 25).
The band were performing at the Suncorp Stadium in Brisbane when Grohl handpicked 22-year-old Aussie Joey McClennan to come up on stage.
Grohl gave McClennan his guitar and the Australian fan proceeded to play along to ‘Monkey Wrench’ with the rest of the Foo Fighters. You can see a video below.
Last weekend, Grohl had the perfect reaction after an excited fan invaded the stage during a performance in Perth.
As they closed their NIB Stadium set with ‘Everlong’, Foo Fighters fan Jevon made his way on stage – and headed straight to give Grohl a hug.
But rather than being startled by the exchange, Grohl immediately reciprocated the hug – before jokingly telling Jevon to “get the fuck off my stage”.
After Jevon left, Grohl continued to dedicate the track to him – offering several shout outs to “Jevon with a J” as he brought the show to a close.
Meanwhile, it was recently announced that Foo Fighters will return to the UK next month for their debut performance at the Brit Awards.
“How the fuck have we never played at The BRIT Awards before!?!?!” Dave Grohl said of the honour.
“We’ve had a ton of firsts over in the UK – from our first festival (Reading ’95) to our first headlining arena tour (2002) to our first stadium tour (2008) – you guys have always been so good to us.
“Why not add 2018 Brit awards to the list??!?!? Let’s make some noise.”
