Foo Fighters Cancel June Shows Due to Dave Grohl's Broken Leg

Foo Fighters Cancel June Shows Due to Dave Grohl's Broken Leg
Dave Grohl recently broke his leg when he fell off the stage at a Foo Fighters gig in Sweden, and although he managed to return to the finish the gig after getting medical attention, the band have since had to cancel some shows. Now, they've axed the current European stretch of their tour.

This means that all of their shows this month have been called off. This includes some very high-profile gigs, such as back to back nights at Wembley Stadium in London, plus a headlining appearance at Glastonbury. Previously, the rockers cancelled their Netherlands festival gig at Pinkpop over the weekend (June 14).

According to an announcement on Facebook, "After undergoing surgery Monday, Dave's full recuperation time is still to be determined." Meanwhile, Grohl wrote a lengthy (and uncomfortably descriptive) letter about the incident which can be read here. Evidently the singer has six screws in his leg and is required to keep it elevated.

As the schedule currently stands, the Foos are set to resume touring on July 4 in Washington, DC. At various points in the summer, they are booked to cross the border into Canada for appearances in Toronto, Quebec City, Edmonton, Calgary and Vancouver. All of those shows are currently slated to go ahead as planned, but we'll keep you posted if anything changes.
