The Foo Fights have canceled a show scheduled for Saturday night in Lexington, Ky. due to an unspecified family emergency. Variety has reached out for further details.
“The band sincerely apologizes for any inconvenience and looks forward to returning to rock Lexington in May,” the announcement reads.
The announcement also detailed that the show, set for Rupp Arena, would be rescheduled to May 1, where all tickets purchased for tonight’s event will be honored. Anyone unable to attend the May 1 rescheduling can obtain refunds at the point of purchase.
The Kentucky stop marked the eighth date of the Foo Fighters’ 2017 tour in support of their new album “Concrete and Gold,” which was kicked off with their performance at resurrected SoCal fest CalJam. The group is expected to continue the run Monday night (Oct. 23) at the Bridgestone Arena in Nashville, Tenn, and is set to play 19 more North American dates through December.
After a break for the holidays, the group will return to play Australia, New Zealand and South America during the first few months of 2018.
Foo Fighters released a new song earlier this week titled “Soldier,” which will appear on a Planned Parenthood benefit compilation, including tracks from other artists like Sleater-Kinney, Bjork, and Bon Iver.
