Foo Fighters cancel all UK and EU dates including Glastonbury

Dave Grohl recently broke his leg during a concert in Sweden and his band, the Foo Fighters, have now been ordered by doctors to cancel all of their UK and European shows, including their scheduled headlining performance at Glastonbury Festival. 

He uploaded a statement that was shared via his band's social media pages and in the message, the 'All My Life' superstar explained that he has to pull out of the event in order to make sure no further issues occur:

"My doctors have advised me to lay low for a while. The most important thing now is for me to recover from the surgery, to keep my leg elevated so as to keep swelling down and prevent any infection/complication that could do long term damage. I’m not out of the woods yet, folks…"

"The doctors have told us to cancel shows. I’m really so sorry, guys. You know I hate to do it, but I’m afraid it’s just not physically possible for me at the moment. 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 concluded the note by adding a message for Glastonbury's other headline performer, Kanye West: "PS…….Kanye…..Imma let you have this one…."

Following this announcement, organisers of Glastonbury have since confirmed that a new headliner for June 26 will be announced in due course: "We wish Dave Grohl all the best for a full and speedy recovery. A new Friday night headliner will be announced soon."
