WATCH: Five-Year-Old Foo Fighters Fan Steals The Show At The Band’s Belfast Gig

James Fenton

Five years ago, Foo Fighters were preparing to release their eighth studio album so the fact they’re inspiring people born around the same time says a lot about the band’s mass appeal.

Someone who fits that criteria is young Taylor Hooper who managed to fit a fairly special moment into his young life last night. Attending the group’s show at Belfast Vital the other night, the five-year-old was spotted holding a sign which pointed out that he shared a name with Foo Fighters drummer Taylor Hawkins.

After some encouragement from the crowd, frontman Dave Grohl then invited the young man onto the stage where he proceeded to steal the show by displaying some dance moves that people well beyond his years would be proud of.

Taylor’s mam Nikki shared a clip on Twitter along with the caption ‘Our Taylor’s first ever gig. Thank you to Foo Fighters and to all the staff & crowd. You are all so amazing. Insanely proud of our wee rockstar. Life long memories made at Vital Belfast last night.’

Another clip was shared by Cool FM presenter Stuart Robinson as Taylor rocked out to All My Life in front of his adoring fans.

What a memory to have for the young man and his family. Foo Fighters make their way to Dublin tonight to perform at the RDS and if you fancy emulating Taylor’s moment of magic you better have your signs ready.
