As we reported on Friday, Foo Fighters’ Dave Grohl broke his leg at a concert in Gothenburg, Sweden after falling off the stage. He kept performing as the paramedics bandaged him up, but now the band has been forced to cancel the remainder of their European and U.K. tour dates. This includes the band’s headliner slot at England’s Glastonbury festival. It’ll be interesting to see who the festival brings in to replace Foo Fighters. When The Stone Roses cancelled their Glastonbury headliner slot at the last minute in 1995, Pulp were brought in as their replacements and it helped make Jarvis Cocker and his band stars in Britain.

A press release states that, “After undergoing surgery Monday, Dave’s full recuperation time is still to be determined.”

The band already had to cancel their June 14 appearance at the Pinkpop Festival and their show tonight (June 16) at the AFG Arena in St. Gallen, Switzerland. The list of the remaining cancelled dates is below and we wish Grohl a full and speedy recovery.

Foo Fighters Cancelled Tour Dates:

June 19 & 20 - London, UK - Wembley Stadium
June 23 - Edinburgh, UK - BT Murrayfield Stadium
June 25 - Werchter, Belgium - Festivalpark Werchter
June 26 - Glastonbury Festival 2015
