Proving there is a place in rock 'n roll for everyone, Dave Grohl invited a blind 10-year-old and his parents on stage during the Foo Fighters' last show of their tour on Thursday (Oct. 18) in St Paul, Minnesota.

Spotting the boy in the audience, Grohl quickly stopped the show mid-song to make sure the child and his parents got a special seat on the side of the stage. "It's a family occasion!" the front man told the crowd.

The lucky family watched the remainder of the concert on stage, as Grohl sweetly brought his guitar over to the boy -- allowing him to have an immersive experience and touching the singer's guitar while he performed.  


On Facebook, the child's mother, Stacy Anderson, showed gratitude writing “Dave Grohl and all of the crew were incredibly kind to our family," adding that her son Owen, is not only blind but also has autism, Crohn’s Disease and developmental disabilities. Fortunately, the one thing that makes Owen the happiest is the very thing Grohl gave him: killer live music.
