After scrapping a July 17 concert at The Forum in Los Angeles because of a case of COVID-19 in their camp, Foo Fighters have now rescheduled the show.

The new date is Thursday, August 26, the band announced on Tuesday, and tickets to the original show will be honored on that date. The July 17 show was to have been the venue’s first full-capacity show in over a year. 

Dave Grohl and company announced on July 14 that “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.”

Their statement went on to say, “Out of an abundance of caution and concern for the safety of the band, crew and most of all the fans, Saturday’s show at the Los Angeles Forum is being postponed to a later date.”

On June 20, the band played the first full-capacity show at New York’s Madison Square Garden, where all ticket buyers were required to be fully vaccinated.
