Foos cancel in Canada but new UK shows announced
Foo Fighters have been forced to cancel a show at the Québec City Summer Festival just four songs in (on Saturday night) due to safety risks posed by an ongoing storm. According to ICI Radio Canada, the band arrived on stage at 9pm, With Dave Grohl telling the audience that after breaking his leg earlier in the tour, a little rain wasn't going to scare him off. But after 20 minutes the band were forced to stop, with festival organiser Daniel Gélinas appearing shortly afterwards to tell the disappointed audience that they would not be returning. The band have promised that they would be back to play again - and indeed the shows at Wembley Stadium and Murrayfield which were cancelled in the UK after Grohl broke his leg have now been rescheduled with two new dates at Milton Keynes Bowl and a re-scheduled show at Murrayfield.
