Did Dave Grohl Just Announce He’ll Resume Touring on a Broken Leg?
He doesn’t have two legs to stand on, but that apparently won’t be enough to stop Dave Grohl from bringing the fireworks on the Fourth of July.
In fact, Grohl and the Foo Fighters have a marathon of shows on the slate, and it would seem they’ll make a run for it.
The veteran frontman should be keeping his feet up after suffering a nasty break when he fell from the stage during a show earlier this month at Ullevi Stadium in Gothenburg, Sweden. Surgeons subsequently inserted screws into his fibula and ordered the showman to rest, forcing the rockers to cancel a prestigious headlining slot at Glastonbury and a bunch of dates across the U.K. and Europe.
Billboard estimated the injury could have set-back the band to the tune of $10 million in lost fees and travel expenses not offset by box office revenue.
