Afterwards he was caught on video clutching a bottle of Buckfast, the high-alcohol tonic wine which has become notoriously popular in parts of Scotland.

In the video, captured by Chloe Van Thomson from Glasgow band the Van Ts, Grohl says: “I wasn’t going to leave this city without at least one bottle of this.”

He then raises the bottle to his lips – although the top remained firmly on during the video so it remains unclear whether he actually gave it a try.

Foo Fighters have a number of gigs and festival appearances coming up in the UK and Ireland, including shows in Belfast, Dublin and slots at Reading and Leeds festivals.
