A refund of the ticket price and booking fee will be made next week
Details of how fans can get a refund on their tickets to see Foo Fighters now cancelled gigs at Wembley Stadium have been confirmed.
The band were due to play two dates at the London venue tonight (June 19) and tomorrow (June 20). However, a broken leg sustained on stage in Sweden has left frontman Dave Grohl unable to perform and, as a result, the gigs have been axed. A separate date in Edinburgh and the Friday night Glastonbury headline slot were also cancelled.
Promoters SJM have now confirmed that a refund of the ticket price and booking fee for the two Wembley dates will be made to the original ticket purchaser beginning June 24 at 9am.
The outlet each ticket holder used for their purchase will automatically handle this refund transaction to their credit or debit card on this date.
In the event of any issues arising, ticket holders are urged to contact the outlet they purchased from directly after the listed date for refund.
The refund mechanism only applies to tickets purchased through the below listed official outlets/agents:
Gigsandtours.com (Sold by SEE Tickets)
Ents24.com ( sold by SEE tickets)
Nme.com ( sold by SEE tickets)
Aloud.com (sold by SEE tickets)
The band have been replaced as Glastonbury’s Friday headliner by Florence + The Machine. Singer Florence Welch released a statement describing her promotion to headline act as an “honour”, adding: “so sorry to hear that the Foo Fighters have had to pull out of Glastonbury, we met Dave Grohl a few years back and he was the nicest guy ever.”
In a statement released earlier this week, Foo Fighters confirmed Dave Grohl had undergone surgery on Monday (June 15) after his injury. The statement read: “Due to injuries sustained in Dave Grohl’s fall from the stage during Foo Fighters’ June 12 show at Ullevi Stadium in Gothenburg, Sweden, doctors have required the cancellation of the remainder of the band’s dates in the UK and Europe. After undergoing surgery Monday, Dave’s full recuperation time is still to be determined.”
