The Foo Fighters have canceled tomorrow’s show in Auckland, New Zealand, after the band’s equipment truck was involved in a scary accident.

The driver is expected to recover; neither Dave Grohl nor any band members were involved in the accident. The equipment in the truck, however, was “so badly damaged it cannot be used,” according to a statement from promoters at Frontier Touring.

“Replacement equipment is being flown from Los Angeles to Auckland in time for the Foo Fighters’ Mt. Smart concert on Saturday night,” the Frontier statement added.

Friday’s show was a sold-out charity event, to be held at Auckland Town Hall as a benefit for the New Zealand Music Foundation, the promoter said. The Foo Fighters’ truck was involved in the crash while en route from Christchurch to Auckland.
