Foo Fighters announced a North American summer tour Tuesday that will take the revered alt-rock band to stadiums, amphitheaters and festivals.
The Foos first hit the road in May, with shed dates at The Pavilion at Star Lake in Burgettstown, Penn. (May 14), Coastal Credit Union Music Park in Raleigh, N.C. (May 20) and PNC Music Pavilion in Charlotte, N.C. (May 24).
After a quiet June, the band returns to the road in mid-July, kicking off a run of 14 dates in just over a month at New York’s Citi Field on July 17. Other stops on the tour include a headlining slot at Montreal’s Osheaga Festival (July 29), stadium plays at Denver’s Empower Field at Mile High (Aug. 6) and Seattle’s T-Mobile Park (Aug. 13) and a tour-closing two-night stand at L.A.’s Banc of California Stadium (Aug. 18 and 20).
Tickets for the dates go onsale to the general public on Dec. 3 at 10 a.m. local time.
Foo Fighters were leaders in live music’s return this year, staging the first full-capacity concert at New York’s Madison Square Garden since the pandemic began on June 20, which doubled as one of the first arena shows in the country since coronavirus’ March 2020 arrival.
“For nearly three hours, Foo Fighters ran through a hit parade, flexing the muscle that has made them a fixture on alt-rock radio for a quarter-century, while throwing enough curveballs to keep the evening interesting for diehards,” Pollstar wrote in a review of the show.
The sold-out show, which grossed $1.4 million, presaged a strong summer of touring for the band, including a gig at Milwaukee’s American Family Insurance Amphitheater that sold 22,281 tickets and grossed $1.8 million, along with headlining turns at Chicago’s Lollapalooza and Atlanta’s Shaky Knees and underplays at Washington, D.C.’s 9:30 Club and Cleveland’s House of Blues.
Now seasoned veterans, Foo Fighters stand as one of live’s most popular rock acts. In 2018, the bank ranked No. 14 on Pollstar‘s year-end worldwide touring chart, grossing $87.3 million. The prior year, the band landed at No. 80 on the same chart with $26.7 million grossed. Foo Fighters’ mammoth 2015, meanwhile, where the band grossed $127 million, landed it at No. 5 on that year’s worldwide touring chart.
“They’re incredible live,” CAA’s Marlene Tsuchii, the band’s longtime agent, told Pollstar in October on the occasion of the band’s 2021 induction to the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame. “No matter how big the stadium is – and I’ve seen a lot of big shows of theirs – you still feel like you’re not 10 miles away looking at a screen. … It’s a very personal feeling to go to their shows.”
