Foo Fighters Announce Dates for 2015 Sonic Highways Tour
Less than a month after announcing their first domestic tour date for 2015 – a first-ever headlining slot at Wrigley Field in Chicago on Aug. 29 – the Foo Fighters unveiled the full schedule of events in store for the highly anticipated Sonic Highways Tour. The North American portion of the 2015 venture will kick off on July 4 with a 20th anniversary celebration at RFK Stadium in Washington, D.C., and will feature performances by special guests like Buddy Guy, Heart, LL Cool J, and many more. The rest of the tour will either have Royal Blood or Mission of Burma on hand as the night’s opening act.
The expansive domestic leg of the Foo Fighters tour is expected to run until October and will hit such notable sites as Citi Field in New York (July 16), Fenway Park in Boston (July 18-19), Gorge Amphitheatre in George, Wash. (Sept. 12), The Forum in Los Angeles (Sept. 21), Centennial Olympic Park in Atlanta (Oct. 4), and FedExForum in Memphis for the grand finale on Oct. 7. The trek is in support of the Foo Fighters’ Nov. 2014 release “Sonic Highways,” which was recorded in eight different cities (Austin, Chicago, Los Angeles, Nashville, New Orleans, New York, Seattle, Washington, D.C.) and spawned an HBO documentary spotlighting each site.
Foo Fighters Wrigley Field Concert Marks First 2015 Tour Date Announced
In the first announcement for what is expected to be a major worldwide tour, the Foo Fighters revealed that its 2015 venture will include the group’s first-ever performance at Wrigley Field in Chicago on Aug. 29. The Windy City figured prominently into the making of “Sonic Highways,” the Foo Fighters’ new album due out on Nov. 10, as it was one of eight cities handpicked for recording sessions documented for the HBO documentary of the same name. To celebrate the launch of the introspective series, the Foo Fighters played an intimate show at The Cubby Bear, which is located right across from Wrigley, on Oct. 17, with similar events reportedly in store for the other host cities: Washington, D.C., Austin, Los Angeles, Nashville, New Orleans, New York, and Seattle.
As of Oct. 24, no other dates have yet been announced for the Sonic Highways Tour, but it’s likely more details will come around the time of the album release. Save for a handful of music festival appearances, the Foo Fighters have largely remained off the tour circuit the last couple years, instead opting to focus on the writing and recording of “Sonic Highways,” which began in early 2013.
