Dave Grohl Rides On Train In New Viral Photo


The Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl recently surprised train passengers by taking a ride on England’s Great Western Railway ahead of his band’s surprise set at the 2023 Glastonbury Festival.

Grohl was spotted riding the commuter train on Friday, June 23 as it headed south towards rural Somerset in the southwest of England where the festival takes place every summer.

“Even rock royalty knows that there is no better way to travel to Glastonbury than by train!” Great Western Railway wrote on Twitter alongside an image of the former Nirvana drummer smiling with his hand on the shoulder of a conductor.

“You never know who is going to churn up on board our trains!”

Later that day the Foo Fighters played an hour-long set beginning with “All My Life” and hits including “Pretender” and “Learn to Fly.”

Grohl’s eldest daughter Violet Maye also joined the band on stage for a duet to their new song “Show Me How” from the album But Here We Are.

Dressed in a white, casual shirt, with gum in her mouth, the 17-year-old sang beside her rockstar dad, who wrote the song for his mother.

“My favorite singer in the world,” Grohl introduced Violet to the crowd. Later he yelled “That’s my girl!” as the father-daughter duo finished the song.

“I love it when you’re on stage with your daughter and you hit a bad note,” he also joked.

Grohl and Violet previously performed the song during a set in Pelham, Alabama, on June 16.
