The Foo Fighters frontman ignites controversy after making not-so-favorable remarks about the 'Shake It Off' hitmaker as both musicians performed in London over the weekend.

AceShowbiz - In a recent concert, Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl made headlines with remarks that seemed to take a jab at Taylor Swift's blockbuster Eras Tour. His comments, delivered onstage during a Foo Fighters performance at London Stadium, raised eyebrows and elicited a variety of reactions online.

The Foo Fighters were performing in London on June 22 when Grohl took the opportunity to joke about the nearby Taylor Swift concert at Wembley Stadium. "I tell you, man, you don't want to suffer the wrath of Taylor Swift," Grohl quipped.

He then explained, "So we like to call our tour the 'Errors Tour.' We've had more than a few eras, and more than a few f**king errors as well. Just a couple. That's because we actually play live. What?! Just saying. You guys like raw, live rock 'n' roll music, right? You came to the right fucking place."

While Grohl's remarks didn't sit well with some of Swift's fans. One fan responded on social media, "I love Foo Fighters but that was very bad out of Dave Grohl to say that and so unnecessary?" Another added, "ngl dave grohl is the last artist i expected that from, he's usually so kind, positive and a good force in the music industry, feeling dissapointed."

However, many others defended Grohl, suggesting his comments were not meant to be taken seriously. "After watching the video, I don't think Dave Grohl was saying Taylor didn't sing live. I think he was just making a joke about how when you sing live there will be errors," one fan commented.

Another noted, "I've loved Dave Grohl essentially my whole life. I don't agree with what he said, however Foo Fighters and Taylor have two completely different music shows. Rock and roll shows are very different than her incredible pop shows. I don't think he meant to be rude."

Grohl has previously shown support for Swift. "I'm officially obsessed. She might want to get a restraining order because I'm all about Swift," he said in a 2015 music festival.

In 2016, he shared an anecdote about how Swift saved him from embarrassment in front of Paul McCartney. Additionally, he praised her decision to reclaim her back catalog by re-recording her past albums during a 2021 interview with Rolling Stone.

Despite the mixed reactions, this incident highlights the different fanbases and styles between rock legends and pop superstars. Whether intentional or not, Grohl's remarks have certainly sparked a lively conversation among fans of both artists.
