Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl opened up in a letter to fans about breaking his leg during a recent show in Sweden and apologized for having to cancel the rest of the band’s European tour dates.

Here’s what Grohl said about the moment he was injured, during a June 12 concert:

Grohl’s fall was captured in a video that quickly went viral, while fans remained in awe that the lead singer had kept playing after the injury. Though there’s no word yet on when he’ll take the stage again, Grohl told fans to “bear with us” as he recovers.

“But for now, I need to make sure we have YEARS of gigs ahead of us….” Grohl wrote. “I will do everything I can to come back and give you a night to remember for the rest of your lives AS SOON AS POSSIBLE.”
