Foo Fighters nix Minneapolis show due to venue’s “refusal to agree to the band’s COVID safety measures”

On Tuesday morning, Foo Fighters announced a North American headlining tour for the spring and summer of 2022. Now, one of the dates has already been canceled.

In a tweet Tuesday afternoon, Dave Grohl and company share that they will no longer be performing at Huntington Bank Stadium in Minneapolis on August 3 due to the venue’s “refusal to agree to the band’s COVID safety measures.”

“We apologize for any inconvenience and are working on finding a suitable replacement,” the statement reads. “One that will prioritize the health and safety of everyone working and attending the show.”

Previous Foo Fighters concerts have required attendees to show proof of vaccination or a negative test.

As for the rest of the tour, that’s scheduled to run from May 14 in Burgettstown, Pennsylvania, to a two-night stand in Los Angeles taking place August 18 and 20. Tickets go on sale this Friday, December 3, at 10 a.m. local time.
