The Foo Fighters announced on Tuesday they were forced to cancel the rest of their European tour after a stage jump gone wrong left frontman Dave Grohl with a broken leg.
“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,” the band wrote in a statement on their website. “After undergoing surgery Monday, Dave’s full recuperation time is still to be determined.”
Grohl also personally addressed the tour cancelation in a message to fans, and went into detail as to exactly what happened at the show in Sweden:
I made a mad dash to the right of the stage during MONKEY WRENCH to shred some tasty licks for the kids up front. It was a beautiful night, beautiful stadium, 52,000 screaming people….dream gig! Well….wait for it….I definitely shredded something (ZING!) Wound up feet first over the Edge (pun intended), dropping about 12 feet, dislocating my ankle and snapping my fibula like an old pair of take out chopsticks.
The singer, who managed to finish the show after receiving medical attention, explained that it’s “not physically possible” for him at the moment to be on tour and apologized to fans for having to cancel.
“We’re doing our best right now to work out a plan, so bear with us. You know we’re good for our word. But for now, I need to make sure we have YEARS of gigs ahead of us,”he wrote.
