The Foo Fighters postponed the group’s Saturday concert at Rupp Arena just hours before the concert was to start.

A release from Rupp Arena sent at 3:22 p.m. said that the 7:30 p.m. concert will be rescheduled for May 1. It said that the concert was postponed because of a family emergency. The nature of the family emergency was not specified.

Tickets for the Oct. 21 show will be honored at the May 1 show.

“The band sincerely apologizes for any inconvenience and looks forward to returning to rock Lexington in May,” the release said.
