Foo Fighters have rescheduled their Van Tour, which was originally due to take place across North America throughout April and May.

All 11 dates have now been rescheduled and will take place in October and December this year, kicking off at the FirstOntario Centre in Hamilton on October 1 and wrapping up at the Talking Stick resort Arena in Phoenix on December 5.

Announcing the tour postponement, Dave Grohl said: “Hi, this is Dave. Remember me? The guy who wouldn’t even postpone a show when my goddamn leg was falling off?

“Well, 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.

“We fuckin’ love you guys, so let’s do this right an rain check shit. The album is done and it’s fuckin’ killer. The lights and stage are in the trucks ready to go. The second we are given the go ahead, we’ll come tear shit up like we always do. Promise. No go wash your hands.”

Grohl recently launched an Instagram series titled Dave’s True Stories where the vocalist, guitarist and drummer is sharing some of the “more ridiculous moments”
