Foo Fighters have been forced to reschedule two Canadian dates on their Concrete and Gold tour after Dave Grohl lost his voice on Sept. 1 following the band’s show at Seattle’s Safeco Field.
Grohl, who is now on vocal rest, seems to be in good spirits nonetheless, joking, “That’s the last time I make out with Bono” in a statement. (U2 recently had to reschedule a Berlin show after Bono suffered a “complete loss of voice” on Saturday.)
The Sept. 4 Foo Fighters show in Edmonton at Rogers Place will now take place Oct. 22, and the Sept. 6 show in Calgary at Scotiabank Saddledome will now be on Oct. 23. Previously purchased tickets will be honored at the new dates, and if refunds are required, they will be available at point of purchase until Sept. 25.
The tour will resume this weekend with Sept. 8’s Vancouver performance at Pepsi Live at Rogers Arena.
