It’s official: Foo Fighters are following up the release of the band’s most ambitious album with its biggest ever North American tour to date. In the wake of Sonic Highways‘ climb into the top three of charts worldwide and the announcement of the band’s first ever U.S. stadium dates, Foo Fighters have now unveiled a full North American stadium/arena/amphitheater assault for summer/fall 2015.
This most massive North American on-the-road undertaking in Foo Fighters’ history will see Dave Grohl, Taylor Hawkins, Nate Mendel, Chris Shiflett and Pat Smear headline multiple historic U.S. stadiums for the first time:New York’s Citi Field on July 16th, a debut double header at Boston’s Fenway Park on July 18th and 19th, as well as the previously announced August 29th Chicago headline at Wrigley Field that sold out in one day, and the July 4th all-day 20th anniversary blowout at Washington, D.C.’s RFK Stadium.
Royal Blood has been confirmed to support on the July/August run of these newly added dates–with the exception of August 27th in Indianapolis and the first Fenway show on July 18th, which will feature a special appearance from hometown heroes and post-punk pioneers Mission of Burma.
And there’s more…Tickets for the Foo Fighters 2015 tour (with the exception of Fenway Park) will first go on sale via the Beat the Box: Box Office Only Pre-Sale this Saturday, November 22nd at 10 am. Fans sick of Scalper-BOTS programmed to clog online queues and snatch up huge amounts of tickets to resell them will get first shot at tickets to these shows.
