FOO FIGHTERS CANCEL EUROPEAN TOUR

The Foo Fighters will cancel the rest of their European tour, as singer Dave Grohl recovers from surgery after breaking his leg while on stage last week in Sweden, they said on Tuesday.

Grohl, 46, said he dislocated his ankle and snapped his fibula "like an old pair of take out chopsticks" after a 3.6m fall off the stage.

He had six metal screws fitted into his leg,

but has been advised to rest, he said. Their headlining slot at England's Glastonbury Festival was also cut.
