What did Dave Grohl say about Taylor Swift singing live? A timeline – Business Insider

Taylor Swift appeared to respond to Foo Fighters singer Dave Grohl’s accusation that she doesn’t play live over the weekend, as relations between the two appear to have soured.
On Sunday, Swift wrapped up the UK leg of her “Eras Tour,” which is the highest-grossing tour of all time and proof of her immense star power. Before it kicked off, Barclays Bank estimated that it would inject £997 million ($1.26 billion) into the UK economy.
However, her intense fan base is fiercely defensive of her and often harasses those who criticize her.
Some fans speculated Grohl’s comments were in response to Swift fans harassing his teenage daughter, Violet Grohl, over tweets she sent about the singer earlier this year.
Here’s a timeline of what’s been said.
In 2015, the Foo Fighters and Swift both performed at BBC Radio One’s “Big Weekend” in Norwich, UK.
Grohl showed his support for her during his performance and joked that he was “obsessed” with her, BBC News reported.
He told the crowd: “I’m officially obsessed. She might want to get a restraining order because I’m all about Swift. To my opening band, Taylor Swift. Taylor and the Swifts.”
Violet Grohl deleted her social media profiles in January after she criticized Swift for using a private jet to fly to “Eras Tour” performances. Swifts responded by trolling her and reportedly sending her death threats.
In a since-deleted tweet, she wrote: “Why can’t Taylor Swift just drive like everyone else.”
Wow I wonder what prompted Dave Grohl to take a little swipe at Taylor Swift? I’m sure it’s totally unprovoked & not at all to do with his 17-year-old daughter being relentlessly trolled & sent death threats from Swifties because of this totally innocuous tweet back in January. pic.twitter.com/NJetVw9aa2
A day later, she made separate comments about sexually explicit AI-generated images of Swift that were shared online, which led to more harassment.

listen i won’t dispute that violet grohl had a somewhat bad or poorly worded take on the Ai porn, and I get criticizing that she previously liked a johnny drop post (from 2022) but she is a literal teenager. They don’t always have the most nuanced takes. Swifties went tooooo far pic.twitter.com/2EBnDxNMgJ
At a Foo Fighters show in London on Saturday, Dave Grohl told the audience: “We were joking about the Taylor Swift tour earlier. I know that she’s on her ‘Eras’ tour. I’m telling you, man, you don’t want to suffer the wrath of Taylor Swift.
“So we like to call our tour the ‘Errors Tour. We’ve had more than a few eras, and more than a few fucking errors as well. Just a couple.
“That’s because we actually play live. What? Just saying. You guys like raw, live rock ‘n’ roll music, right? You came to the right fucking place.”

Swift hasn’t directly addressed Grohl’s comments, but she appeared to respond while performing in London on Sunday.
“Every one of my band members, every single one of our crew, my band who’s gonna be playing live for you for 3.5 hours tonight, they deserve this so much.
“And so does every one of my fellow performers. And you just gave that to us so generously, we will never forget it,” she said.
