#SPOTTED: FOO FIGHTERS IN TORONTO AT THE MOLSON AMPHITHEATRE
Eleven-time GRAMMY Award Winners, FOO FIGHTERS played a sold-out show at the Molson Amphitheatre tonight, just one of two concerts they are to play at the venue back-to-back. Playing a mixture of hits spanning their 21 active years, the Quintet were full of energy despite Frontman Dave Grohl having injured his leg in Sweden recently, almost canceling the entire Tour in support of latest Disc, Sonic Highways which has since been coined the Broken Leg Tour. Being the Trouper that he is, Grohl had an operation and in the blink of an eye is ready to go. Due to his limited mobility, his Team helped craft a throne for him to sit in and perform from – not letting a little hitch getting in the way of the Band performing for their adoring Fans.
Grohl told the Toronto crowd, which was on its feet for well-over three hours surpassing the 11:00 PM curfew, that the City always will hold special significance for him. At the young age of 18, he one fateful night would be asked by Iggy Pop to play drums for him at the Horseshoe Tavern, a venue he and his Band also were scheduled to appear at that night too. The rest is just a memory and Grohl has seen massive success, deservedly garnering Rock God status for his tireless energy and talent.
We had the pleasure of meeting Grohl, Taylor Hawkins and Chris Shiflett from the Band and they were amazingly-nice to stop after a long, grueling Show! Grohl used a scooter to navigate to his Hotel with ease and speed.
