NEW ORLEANS, Louisiana (CelebrityAccess) — The Foo Fighters have been forced to postpone a high profile gig as the debut act for the brand new Fillmore New Orleans after reporting that a band member was injured.
The Foos took to Twitter on Monday to announced the news, writing “Due to a band member’s injury, Foo Fighters have been forced to reschedule their February 15 & 16 opening weekend at the Fillmore New Orleans.”
