Dave Grohl and co were forced to scrap their town after the frontman broke his leg

Foo Fighters tribute act UK Foo Fighters performed the first of two shows near Wembley Stadium in London on Friday night (June 19) for fans disappointed at the US band’s recent tour cancellation.

The group announced on Tuesday night (June 16) that they have been forced to pull shows in London, Edinburgh and at Glastonbury Festival due to a broken leg that frontman Dave Grohl sustained last week.

Offering an alternative for fans inconvenience by the cancellation, UK Foo Fighters performed at Crystal Clubs, with proceedings going to music charity Given To Live. Watch footage of UK Foo Fighters performing ‘My Hero’ below.

Last September, UK Foo Fighters frontman Jay was invited onstage with Dave Grohl and co at the band’s gig in Brighton for a rendition of ‘White Limo’.

Meanwhile, Glastonbury Festival organiser Emily Eavis has stated that she would “love” for Foo Fighters to headline the event in the future following their recent cancellation.

Speaking to Digital Spy, Eavis said: “You don’t see something like that coming and we were so sorry to hear about poor Dave Grohl’s leg. I saw the footage and I did think, ‘OK, if this happens and they have to pull, then what are we going to do?'”

She continued: “I would love for them to come back. I really hope they can. Hopefully soon,” she said. “I think it’ll probably be in a couple of years, but it would be brilliant to have them back.”
