Deftones have been forced to cancel a show after frontman Chino Moreno broke his foot during a gig – but continued to perform the rest of the set. Watch footage of the incident below.

The metal veterans were performing at Belgium’s flagship rock festival Groezrock at the weekend. Just a few minutes into their performance Moreno fractured his foot, but played through the set until the end of their performance.

As a result, the band were forced to cancel a gig in Koln, but assure fans that the rest of their scheduled shows remain unaffected – including upcoming shows in London, Manchester and Glasgow kicking off this week.

“Hey Koln,” the band wrote on Facebook. “Regretfully, we have to cancel our show tonight due to Chino breaking the top of his foot. He needs to stay off it for the next day or two. No other shows as of now are in jeopardy of being cancelled. We hope to make it back soon to perform for you again. In the meantime, all tickets will be refunded. Thanks for your understanding. Deftones.”

Deftones’ upcoming UK tour dates with AFI are below. Tickets are available here.

London, Alexandra Palace (May 5)
Manchester, O2 Apollo (May 6)
Glasgow, SECC (May 7)

The upcoming shows are in support of their acclaimed 2017 album, ‘Gore‘. Speaking to NME about the band’s future, Moreno said: “I certainly wouldn’t want to carry on forever.

“The fact we’re still out there making music is far beyond what I could have imagined when we started out, but to imagine doing it for another 20 or 30 years? I’m not sure about that!”
