"Click on broken heart for a message from Dave…"

After Dave Grohl broke his leg during a performance in Sweden last week, the Foo Fighers have announced they're canceling their remaining European tour dates:

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

Many fans who anticipated seeing the Foos at Glastonbury are sure to be disappointed. Florence + The Machine have been announced as the replacement for the Friday night headlining spot on the Pyramid Stage.

Grohl posted a letter on that gives a blow-by-blow account of "the single most bizarre Foo Fighters show in the entire 20 years of being a band."


The Foo Fighers official website says "After undergoing surgery Monday, Dave’s full recuperation time is still to be determined." The band's next scheduled concert is a special July 4 concert at RFK Stadium in Washington D.C. with guests including Buddy Guy, Gary Clark, Heart, Joan Jett, and Trouble Funk. That leaves a few weeks of recovery, which should be enough time to play guitar and sing -- but not run around like a madman.

Here are the rest of the band's upcoming tour dates:
