Foo Fighters reschedule Canadian shows after Dave Grohl loses voice

The Foo Fighters have been forced to reschedule a pair of Canadian dates this week after singer Dave Grohl lost his voice.

After opening the latest leg of the Concrete And Gold tour in Seattle, WA on September 1 – where Grohl and guitarist Pat Smear reunited on stage with Nirvana bandmate Krist Novoselic – the rocker suffered a loss of voice and is now on vocal rest.

“That’s the last time I ever make out with Bono,” says Grohl, referring to the U2 singer who lost his voice during a September 1 gig in Berlin, Germany that saw the group cancel the show after just five songs.

As a result, the Foos upcoming September 4 appearance at Rogers Place in Edmonton, AB and September 6 concert at the Scotiabank Saddledome in Calgary, AB have been reschedule to next month, as follows: the new Edmonton date is now October 22 and the new Calgary date is October 23.

Previously purchased tickets will be honured for these new dates; if a refund is required, refunds are available at point of purchase until September 25.

The Concrete and Gold tour will resume September 8 at the Rogers Arena in Vancouver, BC.

In a statement, the Foo Fighters says they “are, as always, grateful for the understanding and support of their fans everywhere and look forward to seeing everyone in Edmonton and Calgary in October.”

The rescheduled Canadian shows will mark the final dates of the group’s 2018 North American tour.
