Sam injured at Minneapolis Show

At last night’s show in Minneapolis, Sam fell early in the set and apparently broke his leg:

The band has had a chance for a redemption on tour, but now that too has run into some unfortunate trouble. As Minneapolis’ City Pages reports, France “jumped and fell into the barricade in front of the stage” during the first song of Foxygen’s set last night at First Avenue (Minneapolis’ The Current says he fell off a monitor) — and was carried out in a stretcher by paramedics. The band called off the show, apologizing and writing on Twitter, “Sam is OK — he might have broken his leg.” Since then, Foxygen have also canceled their upcoming tour dates in Vancouver and Seattle, explaining in a Facebook post that France’s injury required surgery. The band hasn’t ruled out playing at Oregon’s Pickathon this weekend, though the statement warns performances “might be more subdued.”

Here’s video from the aftermath — can’t really see much though:
