The Foo Fighters rock band has called off its concert at the Formula One race in Abu Dhabi due to "unforeseen medical circumstances," event organizers said on Sunday, Dec. 12, 2021.

Rock & Roll Hall of Famers Foo Fighters has announced they will be adding a Vancouver Island stop to their upcoming 2022 North American tour.

The well-known band — fronted by Dave Grohl — has added a Monday night show on October 3 in Victoria at Save-On-Foods Memorial Centre.

The band says that tickets for the Victoria show will go on sale to the public on Friday, February 18 at 10 a.m. PST.

As part of the new shows, Vancouver — on Oct. 5 — and Penticton — on Oct. 1 — were the other two stops in British Columbia that the Foo Fighters will visit.

The tour follows the release of the band’s 10th studio album, Medicine at Midnight, which came out in 2021.

At this time, an opening act has not yet been announced.

Although the COVID-19 pandemic has significantly impacted live concerts at Save-On-Foods Memorial Centre, 2022 appears promising for music shows making a comeback.

As it currently stands, Imagine Dragons, Avril Lavigne and ZZ Top are a few of the big names slated to perform in Victoria this year.

More information about upcoming events can be found on the Save-On-Foods Memorial website.
