Foo Fighters' Dave Grohl ejects fan for fighting

London - Foo Fighters front-man Dave Grohl ejected a fan during the band's performance of 'Walk' at the iTunes Festival in London on July 12 after the violent concert-goer tried to throw a monkey wrench into the band's set.
During the Foo Fighters nearly three hour performance, Grohl noticed a male fan wearing a striped shirt had started a fight in the crowd, leading the band's front-man to reportedly stop their performance and berate the trouble-maker.
"You don't f*****g fight at my show you a**hole," Grohl said during the unscheduled intermission captured on video.
After finally getting the fan's attention, Grohl told him to leave the show immediately, prompting cheers from those in attendance.
"You don't come to my show and fight, you come to my show and f*****g dance," said Grohl. "I don't put up with that bullshit. You people come here to have a good time."
After the ejection, fans began chanting Grohl's name.
"Whatever, that guy was an a**hole. He's out of here," he said.
Behind the scruffy beard and long hair, Grohl is renowned as one of the "nice guys" of rock, speaking out against drug use and violence since the Foo Fighters' inception in 1995, fuelled at least in part by the death of former Nirvana bandmate, Kurt Cobain.
The Daily Record stated Grohl has followed in the footsteps of Morrisey, Tim McGraw and Akon concerning the ejection of violent fans from concerts.
There is no word as of yet regarding what started the fight during the performance.
