Dave Grohl’s infamous broken leg has forced the band to cancel the remainder of their European tour, which includes three massive dates: June 19 and 20 at Wembley Stadium in London and a headlining slot June 26 at Glastonbury, one of the UK’s biggest festivals.
Here’s the word from Nasty Little Man:
Due to injuries sustained in Dave Grohl’s fall from the stage during Foo Fighters’ June 12 show at Ullevi Stadium in Gothenburg, Sweden, doctors have required the cancellation of the remainder of the band’s dates in the UK and Europe. After undergoing surgery Monday, Dave’s full recuperation time is still to be determined.
It was previously announced that Foo Fighters’ June 14 appearance at the Pinkpop Festival and June 16 show at the AFG Arena in St. Gallen, Switzerland were cancelled. The following dates have now been cancelled as well:
June 19 & 20 – London, UK – Wembley Stadium
June 23 – Edinburgh, UK – BT Murrayfield Stadium
June 25 – Werchter, Belgium – Festivalpark Werchter
June 26 – Glastonbury Festival 2015
The North American leg (…ahem…) of the Foo Fighters’ summer tour begins with a July 4 BBQ spectacular at RFK Stadium in Washington, DC. It then heads to New Jersey and Canada before four shows in Major League ballparks: July 15 and 16 at Citi Field in New York and July 18 and 19 at Fenway Park.
