Foo Fighters Announce 26th Anniversary Tour Dates for 2021

7th June 2021 | Category: Concerts

Foo Fighters were originally set to celebrate the 25th anniversary of their formation as a band with a 2020 tour, but like the rest of live music, the shows were put on hold during the pandemic. Now, the band has finally unveiled their rescheduled 25th (now 26th) anniversary tour lineup, adding to their previously announced 2021 sets at Lollapalooza, Bonnaroo, Bottlerock, and Boston Calling.

The six-show run will kick off July 28th in Cincinnati, Ohio, followed by shows in Milwaukee, St. Louis, Bonner Springs, Oklahoma City, and Albuquerque. Radkey will play as openers for all six dates. The band is also expected to announce more shows within the coming weeks.

Foo Fighters released their latest album Medicine at Midnight in February 2021, after it, too, was delayed a year due to Covid-19. Last month, the band was announced as one of the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame’s 2021 inductees, alongside the Go-Go’s, Jay-Z, Carole King, Todd Rundgren, and Tina Turner. The induction ceremony will be held at Cleveland, Ohio’s Rocket Mortgage FieldHouse on October 30th.

Grohl said that his initial reaction to hearing the news of Foos’ induction was one of “surprise and, of course, very appreciative”.

“I just recently realized it’s been half my life since I’ve been in this band,” he said. “I feel, in a way, that I’ve almost neglected how much we’ve done in the past 25 years. I think because I’m always working in a forward motion, I don’t spend too much time sitting down and looking back at what we’ve done or reflecting on our past achievements. I just kind of look forward to the next thing. So today has been a bit more reflective than before.”

Grohl added that he was “mostly happy for [his bandmates] Pat [Smear], Nate [Mendel], Chris [Shiflett], Taylor [Hawkins] and Rami [Jaffee]”, saying: “I don’t think any of us ever imagined that this would happen.”
