Foo Fighters were forced to cancel the rest of their U.K./ Europe tour dates following Dave Grohl’s leg injury. These dates included a headlining slot at Glastonbury Festival on June 26.

“Due to injuries sustained in Dave Grohl’s fall from the stage during Foo Fighters’ June 12 show at Ullevi Stadium in Gothenburg, Sweden, doctors have required the cancellation of the remainder of the band’s dates in the UK and Europe,” the band said in a statement. “After undergoing surgery Monday, Dave’s full recuperation time is still to be determined.”

Grohl also wrote a note on the band’s website, describing the incident in which he hurt himself, the subsequent surgery, and his recovery plan. He apologized to fans and wrote, “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…”

As for Glastonbury, Grohl added, “Kanye…..Imma let you have this one…”

The group had already announced that they would cancel the June 14 and June 16 appearances at Pinkpop Festival and the AFG Arena in Switzerland, respectively. The canceled dates include:

June 19 & 20 – London, UK – Wembley Stadium

June 23 – Edinburgh, UK – BT Murrayfield Stadium
