When Dave Grohl fell off the stage and broke his leg at a concert in Sweden last summer, the Foo Fighters frontman didn't sulk and quit for the rest of the season: He designed a crazy rock throne so that he could still perform while seated, and the subsequent tour behind Sonic Highways more or less went off without a hitch.
Fast-forward to 2016: Guns N' Roses reunited, they played an intimate gig at the Troubadour in Los Angeles, were scheduled to play some Coachella warm-up shows in Las Vegas, and Axl Rose broke his foot right before the first of the two performances planned for Sin City. Enter the throne: Footage from the GNR show last night shows Axl sittin' pretty in what looked an awful lot like that one-of-a-kind Foo seat.
For the majority of the performance at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, it was hard to see if it literally was Grohl's throne, or merely a copycat contraption. Towards the end of the show, a covering was removed from it and displayed the Foo Fighters logo, with Axl grinning at the FF himself: "That's a good advertisement!"
Honestly, it's kind of a genius move, given the insane engineering achievement it was to not only create that throne, but make it work — and well! — in the Foo Fighter's touring stage set-up. It only makes sense, then, for a band to make use of said chair when it's no longer needed it, as Grohl's leg has long since healed.
Here's hoping Axl sees a speedy recovery, as it's probably kind of a pain to navigate the polo fields of Indio on crutches, let alone tackle a major rock set, throne or no throne. For a complete list of Guns N' Roses tour dates, click here.
