Foo Fighters lead singer Dave Grohl had to be taken to the hospital after sustaining a leg injury during a June 12 concert in Sweden, and now representatives for the band have confirmed Grohl suffered a fracture that will require Foo Fighters to cancel two shows.

The band’s June 14 appearance at Pinkpop Festival and June 16 concert in Switzerland have been postponed.

“As witnessed by tens of thousands in attendance at Foo Fighters’ June 12 show at Ullevi Stadium, Dave Grohl took a nasty spill during the second song of the set. With the help of on-site medical staff who patched him up temporarily, Dave was able to rejoin the band to complete that performance,” read a statement. “While the full extent of Dave’s injuries are still being determined, it was confirmed at a post-show hospital visit that he sustained at least one fracture.”
