Following the cancellation of various Foo Fighters tour dates due to Dave Grohl's broken leg, the fantastic Florence + The Machine has been announced as the replacement headliners for their Glastonbury set.

Update: Read a letter from Dave Grohl discussing the issue, the extent of his injuries, cancellation of shows and more here.

Following Dave Grohl's recent on-stage leg break, Foo Fighters has cancelled the rest of the European tour which includes their hugely anticipated headline set at this year's Glastonbury Festival. Check out the updated itinerary in the replies.

Update: The next two shows (PinkPop and St. Gallen) have been cancelled.

Foo Fighters are currently in the middle of their European tour which includes headlining Glastonbury, but last night at the show in Gothenburg, Sweden Dave Grohl fell off the stage and broke his leg only two songs into the set. Rather than cancelling the show, Grohl was taken to get it checked out whilst the band played a few songs without him. He then returned to the stage where medics fixed a cast to his leg as he continued playing and singing from a chair on stage for the rest of the two hour long show. No future shows are considered to be cancelled. Hit the replies for some pictures.

Lightning struck during the Rock Am Ring Festival in Germany over the weekend. Over 30 people are in the hospital, luckily none of the injuries are considered life threatening. The concert included such acts as Foo Fighters, Slipknot and Bastille. Best wishes to everyone hurt.

News has been pretty quiet on the Glastonbury Festival front this year in terms of the line up, but tonight the NME Awards are taking place live in London's Brixton Academy and Foo Fighters picked up the award for "Best International Band" moments ago. The band were unable to be at the event so recorded a video message which sees them declare that they will be headlining Glastonbury this year.

Dave Grohl will be the Record Store Day ambassador this year. His full statement is in the replies.
Growing up in Springfield, Virginia in the 70’s and 80’s, my local independent record stores were magical, mysterious places that I spent all of my spare time (and money) in, finding what was to eventually become the soundtrack of my life. Every weekend I couldn’t wait to take my hard earned, lawn mowing cash down for an afternoon full of discovery. And, the chase was always as good as the catch! I spent hours flipping through every stack, examining the artwork on every cover, the titles and credits, searching for music that would inspire me, or understand me, or just to help me escape....

Rolling Stone recently sat down with Ben Gibbard to talk about his work on Foo Fighters Sonic Highways album.
For me, seeing bands not only being great but also humble and acceptable – that's something that's always been built into the ethic and aesthetic of this city. It doesn't matter how famous you get outside of Seattle; you can't come back and act like an asshole "rock star." If you move to New York or Los Angeles or maybe Nashville, you could go out and be like, "That's a super famous rock star. That's just how he acts." But Seattle doesn't play that shit.

I'm officially supposed to stop now because this is becoming a Kanye West-esque rant for Rollingstone.com. Because apparently, nowadays, you aren't allowed to speak to your own fans about anything, lest it be a rant. So forget ISIS, forget the war in the Middle East, forget any problems at home, forget gay marriage, forget everything you ever thought about everything. This not a rant. This is just me saying, hello Cleveland!"

Foo Fighters are currently in the UK to play the closing ceremony of The Invictus Games, but before doing so they hinted at a few secret shows across the country. Tonight they played the first of three billed as 'The Holy Shits' and played to a 600 capacity crowd with a set consisting of mainly rarely played tracks and covers. The band also hinted that they will be playing a week of shows at the famous Wembley Stadium. Check out the setlist in the replies.
"I seem to remember years ago we played this club and it was also hot as balls. When we were asked to come over and play the Invictus Games on Sunday I thought 'we haven't played in the UK in years', and I thought we'd try to play...

At a recent TV Critics Association event in Los Angeles, California, Foo Fighters' Dave Grohl voiced his opinion on "singing competitions":
I don't want my kid to think that the only way you can be a musician is to stand in line at a song contest audition, and then wind up having a bazillionaire tell you you're not a good singer. Don't get me started. To me, that's not what music's about.
