Foo Fighters cancel dates after Grohl breaks leg
(www.rte.ie) – Foo Fighters have cancelled the rest of their summer European tour after it was discovered that singer Dave Grohl has suffered “at least one fracture” falling off of the stage at a concert last week in Gothenburg, Sweden.
The dates cancelled include a headlining set at Glastonbury at the end of June. Grohl offered an apology on the Foo Fighters’ website and also posted x-rays of the injury and an update saying he had undergone surgery.
Grohl called the show “without a doubt the single most bizarre Foo Fighters show in the entire 20 years of being a band” and said that the fall led to him “dislocating my ankle and snapping my fibula like an old pair of take out chopsticks.”
On the topic of Glastonbury, Grohl wrote: “Kanye . . . Imma let you have this one . . . ”
