The Foo Fighters have postponed their Saturday concert at the Forum in Inglewood after someone affiliated with the band tested positive for the novel coronavirus.
Tickets purchased for this weekend will be valid for the new date, which “will be announced shortly,” according to the musical act’s social media pages.
Saturday’s concert was scheduled to have been the first held at The Forum, the former home of the NBA’s Los Angeles Lakers, since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic.

“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,” the band said in a statement.
“Out of an abundance of caution and concern for the safety of the band, crew and most of all the fans, Saturdays show at the Los Angeles Forum is being postponed to a later date.”
