Foo Fighters cancel Singapore show due to frontman’s vocal issues

Foo Fighters hold fans all over the world, which is why they can often be found traveling the globe, taking their dynamic grunge rock to the masses. Fans in Singapore, though, are in for a bit of a disappointment.

The Foos have canceled their March 2 gig in Singapore, due to frontman Dave Grohl‘s vocal problems. “We deeply regret having to cancel,” the band said in an official statement. “It wasn’t an easy decision by any stretch but, after carefully considering medical advice, we felt we had no choice. Dave’s been told by more than one doctor that he has to take it easy on this voice. We hate to disappoint our fans in Singapore and hope you’ll all understand and that we’ll see you all in the not too distant future.” Get better soon, Dave!

In other news, Foo Fighters picked up best International Group at the 2012 Brit Awards this past week, as well as five trophies at the 54th annual Grammy Awards earlier this month. The band’s 2012 Grammy wins include Best Rock Album, Best Long Form Video, Best Rock Song and Best Hard Rock / Metal Performance and the coveted Best Rock Performance Grammy for their high-energy, powerhouse rock single “Walk.”

“To me this award means a lot because it shows that the human element of making music is what’s most important: singing into a microphone and learning to play an instrument and learning to do your craft,” Grohl said while accepting the Grammy for Best Rock Performance, adding that the band’s 2011 album, “Wasting Light,” was recorded in Grohl’s own garage. “That’s the most important thing that you can do. It’s not about being perfect. It’s not about sounding absolutely correct. It’s not about what goes on in a computer. It’s about what goes on in here (motions to head), and it’s about what goes on in here (motions to heart).”
