Foo Fighters have been forced to cancel a gig in New Orleans after a bandmember is said to have injured themselves.
After the band were joined onstage by Rage Against The Machine’s Tom Morello and Queen’s Roger Taylor during a pre-Super Bowl gig in Atlanta this weekend, they’ve now announced that they won’t be able to play Christen The Fillmore this weekend at the inaugural re-opening show as one of the Foos has suffered a mishap.
They do however, promise to “bring it in May”.

This isn’t the first accident for the band in 2019. Frontman Dave Grohl fell off the stage at their very first show of the year last month.
Grohl has form in this department. In 2015, he fell off stage and broke his leg at a gig in Sweden.
It forced the band to cancel headlining Glastonbury Festival – the slot then being filled by Florence And The Machine. The Foos returned to top the bill and play Worthy Farm in 2017.
In 2018 Grohl pranked fans on the band’s return to Sweden by pretending to fall off stage again.
Meanwhile, Foo Fighters will return to the UK this summer to headline Reading & Leeds festival alongside The 1975, Post Malone and Twenty One Pilots this August.
