Since U2's Bono also lost his voice recently, Dave did not hesitate to crack a joke to liven up the situation
The Foo Fighters postponed two Canadian dates when Dave Grohl, frontman of the band lost his voice after the Seattle show on September 1.
The band announced that the shows have been moved to late October. The shows were part of their “Concrete and Gold” world tour to support their ninth studio album of the same name.
The announcement read: “Foo Fighters have had to reschedule two shows on the Canadian leg of the Concrete and Gold tour: September 4 in Edmonton at Rogers Place and September 6 in Calgary at Scotiabank Saddledome.”
“The new Edmonton date is now October 22 and the new Calgary date is October 23 and previously purchased tickets will be honored on the new dates, and refunds will be issued at point of purchase until September 25,” the band stated in their announcement.
Referring to an incident over the weekend where U2 singer Bono had to cut a concert in Berlin short after abruptly losing his voice, Grohl, joked on Twitter: “That’s the last time I ever make out with Bono.”
