Performing on stage with your musical heroes is a dream for many children, and a lucky Foo Fighters fan had the opportunity a few days ago when Dave Grohl invited her to play “Monkey Wrench” on guitar.
A participant in the show, which took place in Bonner Springs, Kansas on August 5, uploaded a video of a fan named Lauren performing on stage with the group. According to YouTuber’s video description, it was the first time the singer had invited someone from the audience to perform on stage with them in two years.
Grohl jokingly told her to stay six feet away before introducing her to the crowd and asking if she could play guitar. Once she confirmed, he removed his guitar himself and handed it to her.
“Have you ever played such a big show? It’s really cool,” Grohl said. “You’re not nervous, are you?”
Lauren denied being scared, then broke out into “Monkey Wrench” with the band and absolutely nailed it. “Damn, she knows this song!” cried the singer in the middle of the verse.

There have been a lot of instances where Grohl has interacted with fans over the years. One of the most notable recent cases is that of child prodigy Nandi Bushell, who challenged the rocker to an online drum competition last year. Not only did Grohl participate on the drums with her, he actually wrote a song for her.
Another heartwarming story came from a fan of Foo Fighters on TikTok, who detailed his meeting with the singer at a restaurant and spent around 20 minutes talking about music and playing guitar with him.
He created a lot of very memorable moments for some of his fans. Go Grohl!
