Foo Fighters have joined the lineup for Power to the Patients, a non-profit concert fighting for more affordable, accessible and equitable healthcare. Others that have previously collaborated with Power To The Patients include Fat Joe, Jelly Roll, Wyclef Jean, French Montana, Rick Ross, Busta Rhymes, Chuck D, Method Man, Lainey Wilson, Valerie June, Shepard Fairey and Everclear.

The show takes place on March 5 and intends to bring lawmakers together to highlight how many Americans suffer from medical debt due to surprise bills, asking for true price transparency. Lawmakers, government officials and their dedicated staff are all expected to be in attendance.

“When we were asked by Power to the Patients to help raise awareness of the need for transparency in healthcare pricing, we immediately said yes,” the band said in a statement. “People suffering from illness and injury shouldn’t have to worry about being bankrupted by surprise charges for their treatment.”

Foo Fighters are managed by Silva Artist Management’s John Silva and booked by WME’s Don Muller in North America. The band has been on the road consistently since last spring, recently wrapping up stadium dates in Australia and New Zealand. Over the summer they had numerous festival plays, including Austin City Limits, Bonnaroo and Outside Lands.

The band also had numerous shed dates last summer, with highlights including a sold-out show at Lake Tahoe Outdoor Arena At Harveys in Stateline, Nevada, which grossed $955,729, according to reports submitted to Pollstar’s Boxoffice. They also sold out a show at Verdun Auditorium in Verdun, Quebec, on July 10, which grossed $370,676.

On May 30, 2023, Foo Fighters opened Washington, D.C.’s newest club, The Atlantis, owned by I.M.P. The 450-cap room sold out, grossing $19,800 for the underplay.
