FOO FIGHTERS Announces 25th Anniversary Tour And New Documentary
Foo Fighters are celebrating the 25th anniversary of their first-ever 1995 tour by repeating a handful of those cities this year. Foo Fighters adds that obviously they can't play the small clubs they used to, though they do tease they just might make an appearance.
Congratulations: You’re old! You’ve been going to see Foo Fighters shows for 25 years now! What better way to celebrate than joining the band in commemorating its silver anniversary in some of the same cities where the first FF shows took place in 1995? Beginning April 12 at the Talking Stick Resort Arena in Phoenix AZ, the Foo Fighters’ 2020 Van Tour will do just that, hitting a number of the same spots that Dave Grohl, Nate Mendel and Pat Smear trailblazed in a Dodge van all those years ago—in arenas this time, because aside from many of those clubs on that 1995 trek having since ceased to exist, squeezing a 2020 FF show into the few that are still around would just be too insane…
… or would it? Stay tuned for the answer to that question. Or answers…
As an opener, Foo Fighters will show a short preview of their brand new documentary What Drives Us. The documentary looks at why the band does what they do, or in their words "what possesses a particular tribe of human beings to leave behind jobs, families, relationships and any semblance of sanity to climb into a busted ass econoline and take their music to the people."
