Dave Grohl lost his voice ‘That’s the last time I ever make out with Bono’

Here’s a PSA from your pal Corey: If any Celebitchy readers are lead singers for a rock band, take sone Emergen-C and drink lots of fluids, because it seems like there might be something going around.

On Saturday night, U2 frontman Bono was forced to stop a concert in Berlin after suffering a “complete loss of voice” and now, Foo Fighters lead singer Dave Grohl suffered a similar ailment, forcing the band to reschedule two shows on their Concrete and Gold tour.

The band posted a statement to social media, announcing that, “After opening this leg of the tour Sept. 1 at Safeco Field in Seattle, Dave Grohl suffered a loss of voice and is now on vocal rest.” Dave added the comment, “That’s the last time I ever make out with Bono,” prompting fans to joke that the Foo frontman was struck with “Bono mono.”

The shows affected are both in Canada: the show scheduled for Tuesday night concert at the Rogers Place in Edmonton will now take place on October 22, and the Thursday’s show at the Scotiabank Saddledome in Calgary has been moved to October 23.

Before losing his voice, Dave’s former Nirvana bandmate Krist Novoselic joined him onstage in Seattle to perform a cover of the Vaselines’ song “Molly’s Lips.” BDave told the crowd, “We haven’t done this song together in a long time.” After hearing this cover, let’s hope that Dave and Krist get together and perform again soon. And get better soon, Dave.

    Aww, I hope everyone gets better soon. Dave G is such a funny guy. Love me some Foo in the mornings.

  2. Astrid says:

    that’s funny “Bono Mono”. I like a guy with a sense of humor

  3. Zachmom says:

    Feel better, Dave! They put on one H*ll of a show!!! Absolutely adore them!!! <3

    • Esmom says:

      Yeah, my son saw them this summer and said it was probably the best show he’s ever seen (with Tom Petty right up there). You’d think with these grueling tour schedules that this would actually happen more often.

      How cool that Novoselic joined him on stage. I’ve wondered sometimes if they are still close, and what Novoselic is up to.

    Gosh how i despise Bono… Grohl shouldn’t even joke about him.

    Haha, I love Dave Grohl. If you have some time, go watch his “FRESH POTS” video on YouTube, it’s hilarious.

    Dave Grohl is possibly one of the coolest rock guys ever!
    Love him. I’ve always gotten a vibe off Dave…I bet he is wicked good in bed. 🙂
    Talented, funny, hot. 🙂

    Dave, stay away from Bono, he’s not good enough for you!
    Bono is lucky Dave knows his name. (U2 is a good band tho, Bono just grates on my nerves)

  7. Chaine says:

    genuinely funny, I hope they both recover their voices soon.

  8. Digital Unicorn says:

  9. Yes Doubtful says:

    Grohl is a national treasure!

  10. Nibbi says:

    I love that he said this 🙂

    He’s just always seemed so likeable, fun, approachable, despite his g*%^n legendary rock status.

    • Nibbi says:

      Also, they were on James Corden’s Carpool Karaoke bit recently and were lots of fun & funny.

      Also, I just realized I saw them open for Red Hot Chili Peppers in 1999, and now, holy damn, do I feel old… that being almost 20 years (??!!) ago and all … pff !! Goodnight, all 😉

    I’ve been waiting for this Thursday night to see Foo Fighters for MONTHS. To say I was disappointed was a massive understatement. Thought the band’s message was cute but I’m still bummed that I have to wait!
