Not much stops the Foo Fighters from rocking, but the coronavirus pandemic has managed to do it. Frontman Dave Grohl announced on Monday (March 16) that the band is postponing its Van Tour 2020.

"Playing a gig with a sock full of broken bones is one thing, but playing a show when YOUR health and safety is in jeopardy is another," Grohl said a in a statement, referencing the time he fell off a stage and broke his leg in June 2015 but still performed for the band's 20th anniversary show. "We f----n' love you guys. So let do this right and rain check s--t."

For those who were looking forward to the Foo Fighters' 25th anniversary tour, worry not. You'll just need to wait a little longer to celebrate with the band. "The SECOND we are given the go ahead, we'll come tear s--t up like we always do. Promise," said Grohl before reminding fans, "Now go wash your hands."

In case you needed some good news too, Grohl also reminded fans that the band's 10th studio album is done. "It's f----n' killer," he said.
