The Foo Fighters has canceled an upcoming concert in Minneapolis over a dispute with the concert venue concerning COVID safety measures.
The rock band was scheduled to perform at the University of Minnesota’s Huntington Bank Stadium on August 3, but announced they are “working on finding a suitable replacement — one that will prioritize the health and safety of everyone working and attending the show.”
In a tweet on Tuesday, the Foo Fighters accused the Huntington Bank Stadium of refusing “to agree to the band’s COVID safety measures.” The band didn’t elaborate on the nature of the dispute or the kinds of safety measures it was demanding of the venue.
