FOO FIGHTERS ADD SECOND SHOW AT NEW YORK BASEBALL STADIUM

January 30, 2015

Foo Fighters have added an unprecedented second night at New York City’s Citi Field to the band’s upcoming North American tour. The group’s July 16th concert at the home of the New York Mets was already set to be their biggest Big Apple date ever, but with tickets selling out and demand still huge, promoters have added a second night at the stadium on July 15th.

Tickets go on sale Friday (January 30th) at 10:00 a.m. ET.

Other stops on the trek include stadium gigs at Chicago’s Wrigley Field, Washington D.C.’s RFK Stadium and Boston’s Fenway Park.

Frontman Dave Grohl said he’s been thrilled with each stage of the band’s growth as a live attraction: “The first tour we did, we were playing to maybe, I don’t know, 500 people a night or something like that, you know. And then that turned into doing theatres and so you get to that stage where you’re playing to 1,200 people and you’re like, ‘Man, I could do this for the rest of my life, this is great.’ And then you get to the point where you’re playing to like 5,000 people a night, and then you start selling out arenas and you’re like, ‘God, I can’t believe that we’ve gotten to this point.’ And then you start selling out stadiums, and it just keeps on getting better, you know.”

Royal Blood and Mission Of Burma will support the Foo Fighters on select dates.
