Dave Grohl‘s broken leg has forced the cancellation of the next two Foo Fighters concerts. Ultimate Classic Rock has received the news via press release today (June 13).

The press release reads, in full , “As witnessed by tens of thousands in attendance at Foo Fighters’ June 12 show at Ullevi Stadium, Dave Grohl took a nasty spill during the second song of the set. With the help of on-site medical staff who patched him up temporarily, Dave was able to rejoin the band to complete that performance.

“While the full extent of Dave’s injuries are still being determined, it was confirmed at a post-show hospital visit that he sustained at least one fracture.

“As a result Foo Fighters have been forced to cancel their June 14 appearance at the Pinkpop Festival as well as their June 16 show at the AFG Arena in St. Gallen, Switzerland.”

In addition to the two shows that were canceled, Foo Fighters have five other concerts left in their European tour, including two nights at Wembley Stadium (June 19-20) and the Glastonbury Festival (June 26). After that, they are scheduled to begin a lengthy North American tour commencing on July 4 with their 20th Anniversary Blowout at RFK Stadium in Washington, D.C., an all-day affair that will include Heart, Joan Jett, Buddy Guy, Gary Clark, Jr., Trombone Shorty and D.C. go-go legends Trouble Funk. As of press time, there is no word as to the status of those and other upcoming Foo Fighters shows.
