It was announced today (Tuesday 16th June) that Foo Fighters were to cancel their UK tour after Dave Grohl had broken his leg. Under doctors orders, the band have been forced to pull out of the following shows…
London, UK – Wembley Stadium – Fri 19th and Sat 20th June
Edinburgh, UK – BT Murrayfield Stadium – Tuesday 23rd June
Werchter, Belgium – FestivalPark Werchter – Thursday 25th June
Glastonbury Festival – Friday 26th June
While no date has been announced yet for the shows to be rescheduled, fans should stay hopeful that they will be able to do Wembley, BT Murrayfield and the other shows they have missed out on in the near future. Though this may be a sad time for fans, I have got an idea which may lessen the blow
On Friday 19th June from 9pm GMT, I will be live on The Radio Alternative providing fans with a playlist which will feature a track from each Foo Fighters studio album. That is EIGHT Foo Fighters tracks which will be played during the show. Give a shout to what tracks you want to hear and if you want to make any dedications. Will play more than the eight if needed.
