Foo Fighters to return to live action for North American tour this week

The band had to pull out of Glastonbury Festival over the weekend due to Dave Grohl's broken leg

Foo Fighters look set to return to the stage for the first time since frontman Dave Grohl broke his leg earlier this month.

The US band were forced to cancel their European tour, as well as a Glastonbury headline slot, after Grohl suffered a fall at a gig in Sweden. They were replaced at Glastonbury by Florence And The Machine on Friday (June 26), who were previously booked to perform immediately before the group.

Despite their upcoming North American dates previously assumed to be in doubt, the band have now suggested that they’ll go ahead as previously planned.

The stint will kick off with a show in Washington DC on Saturday (July 4). The band announced the news via Twitter, writing: “Can’t f***ing wait for the 4th!!! See you at home, DC.” See that tweet below.

Florence And The Machine performed Foo Fighters track ‘Times Like These’ in tribute to the Grohl during their Glastonbury headline set. Florence Welch said: “Dave if you’re listening, we love you. We all love you.”

Meanwhile, Foo Fighters are the bookies favourites to headline Glastonbury 2016. See the full list of odds here. Last week, it was reported that the group are allegedly already booked to headline next year.
