The Glastonbury Festival have announced that Florence and the Machine are filling The Foo Fighters’ spot.
The American rockers announced that they won’t be playing the iconic British festival due to the recent fall of front-man Dave Grohl on stage that left him with a broken leg.
“Once we heard… Foo Fighters had been forced to pull out, there was only one person we wanted to call and that was Florence,” Emily said, reports BBC.
The ‘Ship to Wreck’ performers’ had been scheduled to play the slot before the Foo Fighters.
Due to Grohl’ injury the US band have been forced to cancel their Wembley Stadium, London dates as well as canceling European gigs as part of their Sonic Highways tour.
The ex Nivarna drummer took a tumble last Friday during a gig in Gothenburg, Sweden. While onstage he told the audience he thought he’d broken his leg, before seeking medical help. He managed to finish the rest of the gig sitting down with his leg in a cast.
Fans finally got the bad news via the bands website. In a lengthy post the 46-year-old made light of the situation, before revealing how serious it really was.
“Here’s the not so witty bit…My doctors have advised me to lay low for a while. The most important thing now is for me to recover from the surgery, to keep my leg elevated so as to keep swelling down and prevent any infection/complication that could do long term damage. I’m not out of the woods yet, folks.
“Which means, and it kills me to say it…the doctors have told us to cancel shows. I’m really so sorry, guys,” he wrote, adding “PS…Kanye…Imma let you have this one…”
