Foo Fighters' Dave Grohl had a “no cursing” sign made to remind him not to swear during his weekend show in Abu Dhabi at the Grand Prix after-race concert.

The sign was specially made for the iconic frontman as swearing is strictly prohibited in the UAE, and the use of the F-word is punishable by up to one year in prison.

A photo of the sign was posted by Consequence and, according to the outlet, he also referred to the sign during his set.

Holding it up to show the crowd, Dave reminisced at his countless performances over the years and told his audience that he thought it was “the first time ever” he’d made it through a live set without swearing. He also joked that the band’s late drummer Taylor Hawkins “would have loved his”.


Is this not the most "Dave Grohl" thing ever?
