Foo Fighters’ planned July 17 reopening of the Forum in Inglewood, Calif., has been postponed, according to social media posts by the band July 14, with an unidentified team member’s positive test for COVID-19, as dirst reported byVariety,
Pollstar reached out to the Foos’ team but did not immediately hear back.
The news is obviously disappointing and a setback to California’s reopening plan for concerts and other business functions, as the state is one of many that have recently reported upticks in COVID infections reported to be a result of the Delta Variant, considered much more transmissible than previous iterations of the coronavirus that locked down much of the country since March, 2020.
“Despite having made every effort to follow CDC Covid protocols and local laws, there has been a confirmed Covid-19 case within the Foo Fighters organization,” Foo Fighters posted to Twitter and Instagram. “Out of an abundance of caution and concern for the safety of the band, crew and most of all the fans, Saturday’s show at the Los Angeles Forum is being postponed to a later date. The new date will be announced shortly. Tickets for the July 17th date will be honored for the new date.”
Barring another postponement, the first concert at the Forum is to be the Black Crowes on Aug. 19.
Foo Fighters have been out in front of live’s reopening, including a reopening of New York City’s Madison Square Garden June 20, closing out the “Vax Live” event at Inglewood’s SoFi Stadium, an event honoring first line responders and medical workers, and a warmup show for the MSG gig at Agoura, Calif.’s Canyon Club in June.
Those shows required proof of vaccination for entry .
