Foo Fighters have announced the initial six stops on their 26th anniversary tour — a sly reference to the fact that the pandemic delayed the band’s 25th anniversary tour last year. As it stands now, the new dates kick off on July 28th at Cincinnati’s Andrew J Brady ICON Music Center and wraps on August 9th at Albuquerque, New Mexico’s Isleta Amphitheater. Tickets for the shows will go on sale June 4th at 10:00 a.m. local time.
In addition to the just announced stops, which will feature Radkey serving as the opening act, the Foos will also headline Chicago’s Lolapalooza, which is set to run from July 29th through August 1st. The band has already signed on to play Bonnaroo on September 3rd in Manchester, Tennessee, and BottleRock Napa Valley on September 5th in Napa, California.
