Foo Fighters postpone concert after confirmed Covid-19 case

The band had actually been arranged to play the Los Angeles Online Forum on Saturday.

On Wednesday, they revealed by means of their confirmed Twitter account: “Despite having made every effort to follow CDC COVID protocols and local laws, there has been a confirmed COVID-19 case within the Foo Fighters organization.

“Out of an abundance of care and issue for the security of the band, team and many of all the fans, Saturdays (sic) reveal at the Los Angeles Online forum is being delayed to a later date,” the tweet read. “The brand-new date will be revealed quickly. Tickets for the July 17th date will be honored for the brand-new date.”

It was not revealed who had tested positive. CNN has reached out to reps for the band for additional information and comment.

In June, the band held a concert at Madison Square Garden in New York City that was billed as being for only a vaccinated audience.

It was the first 100% capacity concert at the arena since the start of the pandemic and was hailed by many as a return to normalcy for the hard hit music industry.

The venue has the capacity for 19,500, according to Madison Square Garden’s site.
