Deftones’ Chino Moreno breaks foot mid-concert, valiantly continues to rock out like nothing happened — watch

on May 02, 2017, 3:25pm

Deftones frontman Chino Moreno broke part of his foot during the band’s set at Groezrock Festival in Belgium on Saturday. However, rather than cancel the performance, or at least sit down for a breather, Moreno instead took a page out of the great Dave Grohl playbook and valiantly continued on with the show as if nothing had happened.

As NME points out, Moreno sustained the injury after taking a spill off the stage mid-set. He remained out of the crowd’s view for a few seconds, but re-emerged to sing up close and personal with a handful of fans. He then pulled himself up on stage, stumbled and fell again, before rejoining his bandmates and settling back into his energetic self. The entire ordeal gives a whole new meaning to the band’s debut album, Adrenaline, and me thinks Grohl would be proud. Check out fan-caught footage up above.
