Foo Fighters lead singer has finally returned to the stage after breaking his leg in a concert last month. The band's frontman performed at Robert F Kennedy Memorial Stadium in Washington on Saturday to celebrate the Independence Day as well as the band’s 20th anniversary. Foo Fighters first namesake studio album was released on July Fourth.

But Dave Grohl had to perform the entire show while sitting on a giant throne, adorned with guitars, lights and speakers as he was not fully recovered and his right leg was still bandaged up.

It was Grohl’s first onstage appearance since the June 12 incident, when the 46-year old singer took a nasty tumble off the stage during a concert in Sweden and broke his leg.

“I think I just broke my leg.” Grohl told the crowd while lying on the floor but he promised them that he will come back and continue the show. “I’m going to the hospital, I’m going to fix my leg, but then I’m coming back and we are going to play for you again.”

He did come back after a while with the assistance of medics and proceeded while sitting on a chair with a bandaged leg. Later, the X-ray revealed that Grohl had a fracture on his right leg. Foo Fighters initially cancelled their two next shows but after knowing the full extent of the injury, they had to call off the remainder of the Europe tour.

On July Fourth show, Dave Grohl recalled the whole incident.

“A funny thing happened to me a couple of weeks ago,” he told the crowd. “I fell off stage. So then I went to the hospital…had surgery… (But I said) I’m not missing this (Washington) show for the world. Nothing is impossible.”

Foo Fighters will next perform at Camden on July 6, before heading to Toronto for two back to back shows on July 8 and 9.
