Foo Fighters have been forced to cancel two concerts because their front man Dave Grohl suffered a broken leg while on stage in Sweden on Friday.
Grohl was performing Monkey Wrench when he suddenly fell off the stage. He was taken out of the stage, but returned minutes later to continue performing while a medic put his leg in a cast. After finishing the show, he walked out of the stage with the aid of crutches.
An X-ray of Grohl’s leg showed that he broke his fibula (below).

Now the band has released a statement, announcing that they have cancelled their upcoming performances in the Netherlands (Sunday) and Switzerland (Tuesday). The band is currently on tour … and it is unclear how Grohl’s broken leg will affect things.
