Foo Fighters pull out of Glastonbury 2015

All UK dates are cancelled, including Wembley Stadium.

Foo Fighters have cancelled their scheduled headline appearance at Glastonbury 2015.

Following a broken leg suffered by frontman Dave Grohl, all UK and European dates have been cancelled, including Wembley Stadium.

Glastonbury have yet to announce a replacement headliner, or if Florence + The Machine will be bumped up the Pyramid Stage to a headline slot. As reported earlier today, Emily Eavis says the festival had a contingency plan in place, if Foos were to pull out. “A new headliner will be announced soon,” the festival says.

Grohl’s injury occurred over the weekend, when the frontman fell off stage in Gothenburg, Sweden. Two dates were immediately cancelled at Pinkpop Festival and in St. Gallen, Switzerland.

Below, you can see Grohl’s letter to fans in full, going into the grizzly detail of his injury before giving props to Kanye.

The newly affected dates are as follows:

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