Foo Fighters were forced to cancel a show at the Québec City Summer Festival four songs in on Saturday night, due to safety risks posed by an ongoing storm.

According to ICI Radio Canada, the band arrived on stage at 9pm, Grohl telling the audience that after breaking his leg earlier in the tour, a little rain wasn’t going to scare him off. But after 20 minutes the band were indeed forced to retreat, with festival organiser Daniel Gélinas appearing shortly afterwards to tell the disappointed audience that they would not be returning.

Later the band posted a photo of them playing during the storm on Twitter, promising that they would be back to play again.
