Seven weeks ago, we received our first news of Foo Fighters returning to the stage after the passing of drummer Taylor Hawkins. Since then, the band has been slated to headline multiple festivals, and now, they have announced their own headline shows.

The first three dates are May 24th in Gilford, NH; June 14th in Rogers, AR; and June 16th in Pelham, AL. We expect more dates to be announced, along with the identity of the band’s new drummer.
At the end of 2022, the Rock and Roll Hall of Famers posted a statement: “Without Taylor, we never would have become the band that we were — and without Taylor, we know that we’re going to be a different band going forward.” They went on to say, “We also know that you, the fans, meant as much to Taylor as he meant to you. And we know that when we see you again — and we will soon — he’ll be there in spirit with all of us every night.”
We did get those epic tribute shows in London and L.A. which helped everyone: family, fans, and the band.
In addition to the great tour news, Foo Fighters also announced a partnership with Stern Pinball for a new line of pinball machines. The Foo Fighters machines “bring the Foo Fighters concert experience home as players are immersed in an epic pinball adventure featuring 15 iconic songs spanning the band’s expansive catalog, including All My Life, Best of You, Breakout, Everlong, Holding Poison, I’ll Stick Around, Learn to Fly, Monkey Wrench, My Hero, Run, Something from Nothing, The Pretender, This is a Call, Times Like These, and Walk.”
As we wait for additional tour and festival dates, you can catch Foo Fighters this summer at Boston Calling Music Festival, Sonic Temple Arts & Music Festival, Bonnaroo Music & Arts Festival, Ottawa Bluesfest, and Harley-Davidson Homecoming Festival.
Of course, as more dates are announced, we will let you know.
