Foo Fighters have officially pushed back their 25th anniversary "Van Tour," where the band was set to return to the 11 cities they played their first ever tour in 1995. The tour was scheduled to kick off in April, but they will be rescheduled.
Dave Grohl explained that they were putting fans' safety and health first. “Playing a gig with a sock full of broken bones is one thing, but playing a show when YOUR health and safety is in jeopardy is another…”
Here is Dave's full statement, where he confirms a new album is done, he also reminds you to wash your hands.
“Hi, this is Dave. Remember me? The guy who wouldn’t even postpone a show when my goddamn leg was falling off?
Well… playing a gig with a sock full of broken bones is one thing, but playing a show when YOUR health and safety is in jeopardy is another…
We fuckin’ love you guys. So let’s do this right and rain check shit. The album is done, and it’s fuckin’ killer. The lights and stage are in the trucks, ready to go. The SECOND we are given the go ahead, we’ll come tear shit up like we always do. Promise.
Now go wash your hands."
