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 3 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.
The massive North American undertaking 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 16, a debut double header at Boston’s Fenway Park on July 18 and 19, as well as the previously announced Aug. 29 Chicago headline at Wrigley Field that sold out in one day, and the July 4 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 27 in Indianapolis and the first Fenway show on July 18, which will feature a special appearance from hometown heroes and post-punk pioneers Mission of Burma.
Tickets for the Foo Fighters 2015 tour (with the exception of Fenway Park) will first go on sale via the Beat the Bots: Box Office Only Pre-Sale this Saturday, November 22 at 10 a.m. 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. Visit foofighters.com for a complete list of box office locations and details.
Online pre-sales for Foo Fighters 2015 tour begin Monday, December 1 with general public on-sales commencing December 4-5.
