Just when it appeared the days of live music postponements and cancelations were starting to become a thing of the past, Foo Fighters postponed their upcoming concert at The Forum in Inglewood, California. The show on Saturday, July 17 will now take place on a later date due to a COVID-19 case within their team.
Foo Fighters were supposed to become the first act to play a full capacity concert at the Los Angeles-area venue since the pandemic began. The band has previously played eight shows at The Forum and recently brought live music back to Madison Square Garden in New York City.
