Starting in July 2015, the Foo Fighters will be back on the road with a brand new tour scheduled to stop in at least 26 North American cities next summer. The venture will launch from Washington, D.C., on the Fourth of July and is currently slated to wrap up on Oct. 7 after a final performance at FedEx Forum in Memphis, Tenn.
Although most of the dates on the upcoming Foo Fighters tour (displayed in full at the bottom of this page) will take place at local amphitheaters and arenas, the trek will also feature a handful of stadium concerts. This includes two previously announced gigs at Washington’s RFK Stadium (July 4) and Chicago’s Wrigley Field (Aug. 29), both of which are set to include sets from a star-studded lineup of opening acts. Support at the RFK Stadium show will include Joan Jett, Buddy Guy, LL Cool J, and more, while Chicago fans will be able to see local groups Cheap Trick, Naked Raygun, and Urge Overkill as openers. As revealed on the new itinerary, the Foo Fighters will also perform at New York’s Citi Field (July 16) as well as at Boston’s Fenway Park (July 18-19) with local act Mission of Burma.
The Foo Fighters tour announcement came on Nov. 18, just over a week after the band’s ambitious new album, Sonic Highways, was released. The eight-song project draws musical inspiration from several cities across the U.S., and it was preceded by the launch of an HBO series that chronicles the making of the album in each individual city. After a week-long residency on The Late Show with David Letterman, the Foo Fighters are expected to debut at No. 2 on the Billboard 200, second only to Taylor Swift and her landmark release, 1989.
While the new Foo Fighters album works its way to the top of the Billboard 200, the record’s lead single, “Something from Nothing,” still reigns supreme atop the genre-specific Rock Airplay chart. As of Nov. 17, the song is enjoying its fourth week at No. 1.
