Outrageous Tour Pranks

Dave Grohl Bugs the Foo Out of Weezer

During a 2005 co-headlining tour with Weezer, Foo Fighters funnyman Dave Grohl couldn’t resist messing with his nerdy counterpart. In a series of pranks caught on video, he put Weezer frontman Rivers Cuomo through the wringer. During Cuomo’s acoustic performance of "Island in the Sun", Grohl hired a large exotic dancer to walk onstage and gyrate behind the singer. During Weezer’s performance of "Undone (The Sweater Song)," Grohl rushed the stage, played along on an acoustic guitar and then smashed his instrument. Lastly, during the set closer, Grohl sent six security guards onto the stage to stand behind the band. The guards then removed their clothing and began dancing around the stage, each with a letter painted on his chest. Together, they spelled out “Weezer.” (Photo: Dave Hogan, Getty Images)
