FOO FIGHTERS have postponed their July 17 concert in Los Angeles after a member of the band’s organization tested positive for COVID-19.
Earlier today, FOO FIGHTERS released the following statement: “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 caution and concern for the safety of the band, crew and most of all the fans, Saturdays show at the Los Angeles Forum is being postponed to a later date. The new date will be announced shortly. Tickets for the July 17th date will be honored for the new date.”
FOO FIGHTERS‘ concert at the Forum was supposed to mark the first full-capacity show at the iconic venue in more than a year.
The band played a sold-out show on June 20 at the Madison Square Garden in New York City. To warm up for the MSG gig, FOO FIGHTERS performed five days earlier at the Canyon Club in Agoura Hills, California. Both venues required ticket buyers to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 to attend.
Last November, FOO FIGHTERS played a live-streamed concert for fans at The Roxy in West Hollywood, California. Six months later, they participated in the televised Live Vax concert at SoFi Stadium in Inglewood.
