Did you hear?! Foo Fighters will be going on tour this year to celebrate their 26th anniversary, and we can’t wait!

Foo Fighters were supposed to hit the road last year for a tour celebrating their 25th anniversary. Then, the pandemic hit and shut down the world. Now, the band is making up for lost time with another tour, and this one coincides with their 26th anniversary. 

Yep, the band has just confirmed that starting July 2021, they will hit six cities across America for what is the first leg of their tour. The band reiterates the same in a press release accompanying the announcement: the six dates are only “the first confirmed” dates. Fans can expect a “crapload more dates to be announced soon.” 

Foo Fighters have more than just one reason to celebrate this year though: the band was also inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame earlier this year. This was frontman Dave Grohl’s second induction into the Hall of Fame, and the first for the other members. 

Before the pandemic hit, the band was all set to relive old memories in a massive 25th anniversary tour. The original plan included visiting all the stops they played in during their first tour, along with the possibility of surprise performances in the same venues they played at in 1995. 

However, the band scrapped the plan due to the pandemic. In a statement, frontman Dave Grohl said: “Playing a gig with a sock full of broken bones is one thing, but playing a show when YOUR health and safety is in jeopardy is another.” 

“We fuckin’ love you guys. So let’s do this right and rain check shit… The SECOND we are given the go ahead, we’ll come tear shit up like we always do. Promise.” He wrote.
