Foo Fighters cancel Phoenix concert and 2020 tour due to coronavirus concerns
Originally scheduled to launch on Sunday, April 12, at Talking Stick Resort Arena, the Foo Fighters' Van Tour has been canceled in response to health concerns related to the coronavirus pandemic.
The Phoenix date had previously been rescheduled for Dec. 5.
All shows will be automatically refunded. For further information, please visit your point of purchase.
In sharing the news on social media, Foo Fighters wrote, "We look forward to seeing you all as soon as it is safe for everyone to do so."
The tour was designed to celebrate Foo Fighters' 25th anniversary by revisiting some of the stops Dave Grohl, Nate Mendel and Pat Smear hit along their tour back in 1995.
"Hi, this is Dave. Remember me? The guy who wouldn't even postpone a show when my (expletive) leg was falling off? Well, playing a show with a sock full of broken bones is one thing, but playing a show when YOUR health and safety is in jeopardy is another."
He called the postponement a rain check, writing, "The lights and stage are in the trucks, ready to go. The SECOND we are given the go ahead, we'll come tear (expletive) up like we always do. Promise. Now go wash your hands."
