American rockers Foo Fighters will be returning to the stage on Independence Day for the first time since frontman Dave Grohl broke his leg in Sweden.
After the accident, the five-piece band had to cancel their entire European tour which included dates at Wembley Arena, as well as their Friday headline slot at last weekend’s Glastonbury Festival. Florence + The Machine, who were due to play immediately before them, were bumped up to the headline slot as a replacement.
It was assumed that the Foo’s North American tour dates would be in jeopardy as a result of Grohl’s injury, however the band have now suggested that the dates will go ahead as previously planned.
The tour will kick off on 4th July in Washington DC. The band said in a tweet that they “Can’t f***ing wait for the 4th!!! See you at home, DC.”
