Foo Fighters: “The North American Tour is a GO!”

The Foos have announced that despite Dave Grohl’s broken leg and dislocated ankle (and the fact that he heals like any other 46 year-old), the band will start their North American tour as scheduled this Saturday in Washington DC. That means all the Canadian shows will go ahead as scheduled.

Dave’s probably been more comfortable and in less pain, but there’s just waaaaayyyyy too much money at stake for the Foo to think of cancelling more shows. (See “So How Much Could Dave Grohl’s Broken Leg Oopsie Cost the Foo Fighters?”)
