Foxygen singer breaks leg, band cancel dates

By | Published on Thursday 1 August 2013


Folk-pop fops Foxygen have capped a spate of intra-band spats and mishaps by potentially cancelling several live dates in North America and Canada, this after singer/guitarist Sam France broke his leg falling off stage mid-set in Minneapolis earlier this week.

Writing via the Foxygen Facebook page, a rep has said the band may yet be able to play their next date at this year’s Pickathon festival, which starts in Portland on 2 Aug, albeit by giving “subdued performance”.

Said rep adds: “Sam needs to have surgery this morning. We will be back. It all depends on healing ands travel time. On the bright side, Sam will probably have a cool cane or something. Thank you all for understanding. We’ll play again soon”.
