Foo Fighters have announced a 2022 North American tour. The 17-date spring and summer amphitheater, stadium, and festival run begins with three dates in May and picks back up in July, continuing through August, and including stops in NYC, Toronto, Philadelphia, Minneapolis, Denver, Salt Lake City, Seattle, Los Angeles, and more. See all dates below.
The NYC shows is at Citi Field on July 17, and there are two Los Angeles shows, at Banc of California Stadium on August 18 and 20. Tickets to those, and all dates, go on sale Friday, December 3 at 10 AM local time.
Meanwhile, Dave Grohl recently released a new memoir, The Storyteller, which he said gave him a place to “shed a little light on what it’s like to be a kid from Springfield, Virginia, walking through life while living out the crazy dreams I had as young musician,” adding it will cover everything “From hitting the road with Scream at 18 years
old, to my time in Nirvana and the Foo Fighters, jamming with Iggy Pop or playing at the Academy Awards or dancing with AC/DC and the Preservation Hall Jazz Band, drumming for Tom Petty or meeting Sir Paul McCartney at Royal Albert Hall, bedtime stories with Joan Jett or a chance meeting with Little Richard, to flying halfway around the world for one epic night with my daughters…the list goes on.” Order it here.
Like last year, Dave has also been covering songs by Jewish artists with producer Greg Kurstin for each night of Hanukkah. Night one was Lisa Loeb’s “Stay (I Missed You),” which goes from faithful cover to extreme metal, and for night two they took on Ramones’ “Blitzkreig Bop!” Watch that below.
Foo Fighters’ first five records are all available on vinyl. Pick them up here.
It seems barely a day passes without some noises coming from the Foo Fighters camp, and the noise is big today: The newly minted Rock and Roll Hall of Famers have announced 17 more concert dates, adding to shows on the West Coast and South America late this year and next, which will take place at amphitheaters, stadiums and festivals across North America during May, July and August of 2022.
The dates include one at New York’s Citi Field stadium and two at the Banc of California Stadium in Los Angeles. Special guest opening acts will be announced “soon,” according to the announcement.
Tickets for the newly announced headline shows will be on sale to the public Friday, December 3rd at 10am local time.
The 2022 dates will mark Foo Fighters’ most extensive North American run since the February release of the band’s Grammy-nominated 10th album, “Medicine at Midnight.”
Citi is the official presale credit card of the Foo Fighters Live in the USA Tour. As such, Citi cardmembers will have access to purchase presale tickets beginning Tuesday, November 30 at 12pm ET until Thursday, December 2 at 10pm local time through Citi Entertainment.
