As Foo Fighters continue their latest trek across North America, Dave Grohl is once again earning recognition for going the extra mile to give his fans the concert-going experience of a lifetime.
 
According to multiple reports, Grohl and co. invited a visually impaired 10-year-old boy onstage in St. Paul, MN, last Thursday (October 18). After spotting the boy and his parents in the crowd, Grohl brought them up and gave them priority seating at the side of the stage.
 
The 10-year-old, Owen Anderson, even got to jam with the band when Grohl handed him a Gibson guitar to play during "La Dee Da."
 
Initial reports on Twitter misidentified Anderson as just being "exhausted," but his mother has since revealed via Facebook that he "is in fact blind, he also has Autism, Crohn's Disease and developmental disabilities."
 
"He was definitely not tired, we take turns holding him up so he can dance," his mother added. "Dave Grohl and all of the crew were incredibly kind to our family."
 
Watch footage of Anderson and his parents making their way onstage below.
 
Foo Fighters continue their tour tonight with a rescheduled show in Calgary.
