DUBAI, United Arab Emirates (AP) – The rock band Foo Fighters has canceled their concert at the Formula 1 race in Abu Dhabi due to “unforeseen medical circumstances,” the organizers announced on Sunday.

The organizers did not provide any further details about the medical problem other than that Dave Grohl and the Foo Fighters “could not travel” to the concert on Sunday for the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix.

“The band apologizes for any inconvenience or disappointment caused by this unexpected turn of events,” the statement said. The band did not make an instant comment on the issue on their social media.

The Emirati state newspaper The National quoted concert promoter John Lickrish as saying that a member of the band had been hospitalized from an airport in Chicago, where the band stopped on the way to Abu Dhabi. He didn’t explain what happened, but said the band managers called him to cancel.

The Foo Fighters last performed on Thursday in Fresno, California and should end their rock tour in Abu Dhabi.

Instead, organizers said Dutch DJ Martin Garrix and French DJ Snake would perform at the end-of-season concert on Yas Island off the east coast of Abu Dhabi in the United Arab Emirates.
