Due to a “band member injury,” Foo Fighters are rescheduling their shows at the Fillmore in New Orleans, originally tabbed to take place later this month. The rockers took to Twitter on Monday to update fans and concertgoers of the development.
Now postponed until mid-May, the dual February concerts—first slated for Feb. 15 and 16—were planned as part of the Fillmore New Orleans location’s opening weekend. It’s currently unclear which member of the Foo Fighters is injured, or how.

“Due to a band member injury, Foo Fighters have been forced to reschedule their February 15-16 opening weekend at the Fillmore in New Orleans,” the Foos share online. “The February dates have been reschedule to May 15 & 16.”
The statement continues, “The band apologizes for any inconvenience caused by the rescheduling. They regret that they will no longer be able to christen the Fillmore New Orleans, but promise to bring it in May.”
And while we hope dear bandleader Dave Grohl chugs a beer at these upcoming shows, we certainly don’t wish for any further downtime from our beloved Foos. Especially those unfortunate periods of inactivity caused by injury.
