FOO FIGHTERS UNVEIL BIGGEST NORTH AMERICAN TOUR IN BAND’S HISTORY

November 19, 2014

Foo Fighters have released the details of the band’s biggest North American tour ever, in support of their ambitious new album Sonic Highways.

FOO sonic

The band will hit arenas, amphitheaters and stadiums in the summer and fall of 2015, beginning with the already announced 20th anniversary show at RFK Stadium in Washington D.C. Other dates include New York’s Citi Field on July 16th, a doubleheader at Boston’s Fenway Park on July 18th and 19th, plus the previously announced August 29th Chicago gig at Wrigley Field.

Drummer Taylor Hawkins said that America has never necessarily been the Foos’ biggest market, “As a band, we’ve always actually been a little bit bigger outside of America. England, we do really well and Australia we do really well and a lot of parts of Europe we do well. And we do well in America, but mainly in the big cities, you know. We’re not huge necessarily in the Midwest and places like that because, frankly, America’s big.”

Royal Blood

Royal Blood will be the support act on the July and August dates, except for August 27th in Indianapolis and the first Fenway show on July 18th, which will feature Mission Of Burma.

Tickets will first go on sale via a box office only pre-sale this Saturday (November 22nd) at 10:00 a.m. Fans can visit the Foos’ official site for a complete list of box office locations and details.
