Foo Fighters' US tour to go ahead starting on 4 July in Washington DC

Foo Fighters' US tour is going ahead despite frontman Dave Grohl breaking his right leg in Sweden earlier this month.

The frontman fractured his fibula after falling off stage at the Ullevi stadium in Gothenburg on 12 June.

He now has six metal screws after an operation in London.

It's unclear how mobile he'll be for the band's US tour dates, which start on Saturday, Independence Day, in Washington DC.

The band were forced to cancel their headline slot at Glastonbury last weekend as well as dates at Wembley Stadium and Murrayfield.

They also had to cancel three European dates.

Florence and the Machine took their headline slot at Glastonbury with The Libertines playing before them.

Lead singer Florence Welch dedicated a cover of Foo Fighters song Times Like These to Dave Grohl.

Foo Fighters will now play 42 dates in North America ending in Castaic, California, on 18 October as well as flying to Japan and Korea next month.

They'll then play 10 concerts in Europe as part of their Sonic Highways World Tour.
