The Foo Fighters’ remaining European shows are in doubt after the band were forced to cancel two of the seven as a result of Dave Grohl’s stage fall on Friday.
He broke his leg in the accident in Gothenburg – then delivered a full set from a seat, while medical staff looked after his strapped-up injury.
But after receiving further treatment after the show, the Foos called off their appearance at Pinkpop in the Netherlands tonight (Sunday) and at St Gallen, Switzerland on Monday.
A statement says: “Dave took a nasty spill during the second song of the set. While the full extent of his injuries are still being determined, it was confirmed at a post-show hospital visit that he sustained at least one fracture.”
The situation means two shows in London plus appearances in Edinburgh, Belgium and at the Glastonbury festival could all be cancelled, depending on doctors’ advice.
A Wembley spokesman says: “We are aware of the incident involving Dave Grohl and are in contact with the event organisers, who at this stage have no further information. As soon as we have news from the artiste this will be made public.”

Four of B.B. King’s daughters have claimed the blues icon left a second will as they continue a legal bid to wrest control of his estate from his manager.
Patty King, Karen Williams, Rita Washington and Barbara Winfree have filed court papers in Las Vegas saying LaVerne Toney and her aide Myron Johnson are unfit to act as executors.
They previously accused Toney and Johnson of poisoning King ahead of his death last month, but have not repeated the allegations.
The latest filing alleges that Toney moved more than $1m from King’s bank accounts, restricted his medical care and changed the locks at his home meaning he passed away “alone, without any friends or family by his side.”
Toney’s lawyer Brent Bryson has dismissed the claims as “completely ludicrous” and “unsubstantiated” while Johnson says: “They’ve been making allegations for ever – this is just the next step.”
King’s body was subjected to toxicology tests before his burial last week. The Clark County coroner later reported that there were no immediate suggestions of foul play, although details cannot be confirmed until results are returned in the coming weeks.
Police said they were taking the accusation of poisoning seriously, but that the investigation was on hold until test results were known.
Iconic horror movie actor Christopher Lee has died at the age of 93.
He passed away in a London hospital on Sunday, his family have confirmed. He’d been under medical supervision for three weeks.
Lee is remembered for a chain of Hammer House Of Horror films and as Scaramanga in James Bond movie The Man With The Golden Gun. But he found a new audience as Saruman in the Lord Of The Rings series, and as Count Dooku in the Star Wars prequel films.
In his 80s he began working on a series of heavy metal albums. The first,Charlemagne: By the Sword and the Cross, won him the Spirit Of Metal Award at Metal Hammer’s 2010 Golden Gods, and it was followed by 2013’s Charlemagne: The Omens of Death. He released an EP called Metal Knight last year.
Lee always rejected the idea of retiring. He once said: “I hate being idle. As dear Boris Karloff used to say –when I die I want to die with my boots on.”
He leaves his wife of 54 years, Birgit, and a daughter, Christina.
