After confirming that they would be continuing at the end of 2022, Foo Fighters have now confirmed a set of shows that they will be playing.
As 2022 same to an end, Foo Fighters released a statement stating that following one of the hardest years of their career, they would be continuing into 2023, albeit as a very different band.
You can read that statement in full below:
“As we say goodbye to the most difficult and tragic year that our band has ever known, we are reminded of how thankful we are for the people that we love and cherish most, and for the loved ones who are no longer with us.
“Foo Fighters were formed 27 years ago to represent the healing power of music and a continuation of life. And for the past 27 years out fans have built a worldwide community, a devoted support system that has helped us all get through the darkest of times together. A place to share our joy and our pain, our hopes and fears, and to join in a chorus of life together through music. 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.
“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.”
And hot on the heels, the band have now announced a load of shows that they will be playing in 2023.
First up they will be headlining Boston Calling on May 26-28 alongside Yeah Yeah Yeahs, The Lumineers, Alanis Morissette, Paramore and Queens Of The Stone Age.
Then there’s Bonnaroo between June 16-18 with Zeds Dead, Liquid Stranger and Odesza.
And THEN there’s Sonic Temple on May 25-28 with Tool, Godsmack, Avenged Sevenfold, Queens Of The Stone Age, KISS, Rob Zombie and Deftones
