Credit: Brantley GutierrezFoo Fighters have some good news, and some bad news. 

The bad news is the band has had to postpone three of their tour dates due to an unspecified “family emergency,” but the good news is they’ve announced a whole new batch of 2018 tour dates.

The postponed dates include last Saturday’s show in Lexington, Kentucky, tonight’s concert in Nashville, and Tuesday’s in Memphis. The Lexington and Memphis shows have been rescheduled for May 1 and May 3, respectively, while a new date for Nashville has yet to be announced.

The next scheduled date on the Foos’ schedule is Thursday, October 26 in Birmingham, Alabama.

As for the newly announced dates, those kick off April 18 in Austin, Texas and conclude July 29 at Chicago’s Wrigley Field. The trek includes a headlining set at the Welcome to Rockville festival, held April 27-29 in Jacksonville, Florida, and two nights at New York City’s Madison Square Garden.
