Taylor Swift has recently finished her UK leg of her Era's tour

Taylor Swift seems to have annoyed Foo Fighters singer Dave Grohl after he made a thinly veiled dig at the Shake it Off singer during the band's concert on Saturday night.

Whilst Swift was performing her second night of the Eras Tour at Wembley Stadium, Grohl and the band were performing at the London Stadium.


Kicking off his performance, he jibed at the Blank Space singer and joked: "I tell 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 f***ing errors as well. Just a couple."

He went on to imply that Swift doesn't perform live and said: "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 f***ing place."

In the past, Grohl had nothing but nice words to say about Swift, but after his comments on Saturday, some fans think he's now taking aim at the singer after his 17-year-old daughter was harassed by Swifties after she criticised Swift on social media for flying over on a private plane.

However, it seemed Swift didn't let Grohl's comments get to her as on her third night of Wembley shows, she acknowledged her band and expressed: "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."

It seems her fanbase was out in full force, as one commented on X: "@foofighters you don’t get to insult her, the band or the dancers. They work their butts off to deliver a live show every night."

Another rebutted: "And what the Foos have everything handed to them? You do know they’re notorious for doing like 4hr shows right? They both work their a***s off. And it was a joke FFS."

Someone else penned: "He’s not! It was a joke that fell kinda flat. Dave Grohl is still one of the nicest guys in rock ‘n’ roll."

"Foo fighters are all in their 50s and still touring doing 3-hour shows. Much more relevant than Taylor Swift," another said before a fifth noted: "It's all love guys. They're in the same industry and I'm sure it was just a joke."

After her three nights at Wembley, Swift is travelling up to Dublin where she will perform for another three nights, then make her way to Amsterdam, starting on July 4, with stops in Switzerland, Germany, and Italy afterwards.

She will then return to London on August 15, to play five more nights, before going back stateside on October 18, playing three consecutive nights at the Hard Rock Stadium in Miami.

The comments from Grohl come after some of her long-term fans were left disappointed after shelling out £660 for VIP tickets at her Liverpool Era's gig at Anfield stadium - only to be left with "restricted views".

Those who paid an extortionate amount to get a "better view" in the VIP section of the arena, were left regretting their decisions after being unable to see the stage due to a large tent and technical equipment blocking the stage.
