Foo Fighters cancelled two performances on Saturday after frontman Dave Grohl broke his leg in at least one place in a spectacular fall from the stage in Gothenburg, Sweden.

“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,” the band said in a statement posted on Twitter.

“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.” AFP
