Dave Grohl Broke His Leg And Now The Foo Fighters Have To Cancel The Rest Of Their European Tour!

| Filed under: Music MinuteDave GrohlLegsOuchie!

Dave Grohl's broken leg is putting a stop to the rest of his tour.

Ouch!

Dave Grohl made headlines last week when he broke his leg in the middle of a show… but kept performing to finish out the set!

Unfortunately, now it looks like it's curtains for the rest of their European tour.

The Foo Fighters frontman had surgery on Monday, but the rest of their show dates were no match for Dave's broken bone.

On Tuesday, they announced they had no choice but to cancel their upcoming concerts, including their highly-anticipated appearance at the Glastonbury Festival.

Dave even included a personal message to his fans on the band's website — that they can access by clicking the broken heart on a picture of the Operation game board.

He wrote a lengthy essay, explaining the whirlwind moment when the injury happened:

"The funniest thing happened to me the other day in Sweden! Two songs into our set at Ullevi Stadium in Gothenburg, I made a mad dash to the right of the stage during MONKEY WRENCH to shred some tasty licks for the kids up front. It was a beautiful night, beautiful stadium, 52,000 screaming people….dream gig! Well….wait for it….I definitely shredded something (ZING!) Wound up feet first over the Edge (pun intended), dropping about 12 feet, dislocating my ankle and snapping my fibula like an old pair of take out chopsticks. Whoopsie daisy. Not good. Without realizing the extent of my injuries, I stood up to get back onstage and crumbled like a sack of Joe Theismanns (look it up, kiddies). That sh*t was B-R-O-K-E."

At least he has a sense of humor about the whole thing!

He also discussed his decision to continue playing, described how his surgery went, and included photos of his x-rays so fans could see exactly what happened.

It's not until the end of the letter that he starts getting serious and shares the sad news:

"It kills me to say it…..the doctors have told us to cancel shows. I'm really so sorry, guys. You know I hate to do it, but I'm afraid it's just not physically possible for me at the moment. We're doing our best right now to work out a plan, so bear with us. You know we're good for our word. But for now, I need to make sure we have YEARS of gigs ahead of us…."

But he made sure to sincerely thank his fans for standing by him, even when he has to let them down:

"You have always stood by our band, and we will always stand by you. Like I say at every show, we wouldn't be here if it weren't for you guys. And I mean that. I thank you from the bottom of my heart. And I will do everything I can to come back and give you a night to remember for the rest of your lives AS SOON AS POSSIBLE. Until then…my sincerest apologies."

Rest up, Dave! We hope you get better soon!

Jack White is a rebel with a cause!

The rocker was playing Fenway Park on Wednesday when he took a minute to speak to his audience, joking about how, unlike the Foo Fighters, he wouldn't be using a backup guitar player to cover up his mistakes.

He followed that comment by teasing that the Dave Grohl diss was just to help feed RollingStone.com.

After bashing the mag for its covers, its coverage of Kim Kardashian and Taylor Swift, and its "clickbait" articles, he attacked the media coverage of Kanye West, saying:

Lorde has yet another celebrity fan!

In fact, Dave Grohl is such a Lorde admirer that her AH-Mazing tunes are giving him hope for the future of pop music!

While we love ourselves some bubblegum and raunchy pop, Dave would rather listen to that curly-headed Kiwi belt out Royals on repeat.

The Foo Fighters frontman explained:
