Watch the Foos frontman invite the 10-year-old and his family on stage during their Minnesota gig and let him strum on his guitar.

Dave Grohl invited a young Foo Fighters fan who is believed to be blind, autistic and suffer from Crohn's Disease on stage last week.

The Learn To Fly rockers were playing a gig at the Xcel Energy Center in St. Paul Minnesota when Grohl is believed to have noticed a young fan in the crowd.

Footage filmed by Matthew Vinge on Twitter sees security bring the young fan to the front of the stage during their Concrete And Gold track, The Sky Is A Neighbourhood.

Grohl can then be heard saying: "You gotta take the parents too now, hold on. This is a family occasion!"

Watch the clip above.

More footage sees the rocker interacting with the family and also allowing the young child to strum on his guitar.

Watch this video from around 3:10 to see them in action:

As NME reports, the boy's mother said on Facebook: "Dave Grohl and all of the crew were incredibly kind to our family."

"Owen is in fact blind, he also has Autism, Crohn’s Disease and developmental disabilities,” Stacey Anderson continued.

"Owen loves concerts so much. He was definitely not tired, he likes to be held up front at most shows and we take turns holding him up so he can dance."

It's not the first time the My Hero rockers have allowed a young rocker up on stage.

This month saw the band invite guitar genius Collier Cash invited on stage to help cover Metallica's Enter Sandman at their Kansas City gig.
