Foo Fighters have confirmed the latest series of dates in their forthcoming U.S. arena tour, with the third leg of the tour concluding November 16 at the TD Garden. Special guests for the November dates will be Social Distortion and The Joy Formidable.
The ever-expanding tour rides the relentless momentum of Foo Fighters' recently released seventh album, Wasting Light, certified gold less than two months after debuting at #1 in a dozen countries. Wasting Light has also generated arguably the best critical notices of the band's 16-year career. The newly released Foo Fighters: Back & Forth documentary, directed by Oscar winner James Moll, has done likewise, with a just-out four-star ROLLING STONE review raving "a classic rockumentary arc... Dave Grohl has lived an extraordinarily cinematic life."
Grohl, Taylor Hawkins, Nate Mendel, Chris Shiflett and Pat Smear will be playing hits spanning the Foo Fighters' catalogue of multi-platinum arena anthems, including new staples such as the 13-week Modern Rock #1 "Rope" and "Walk," the band's latest single and subject of the brilliant Sam Jones-directed parody of the classic crime drama Falling Down. Already a viral sensation, the "Walk" clip has been viewed more than a million times since its June 2 premiere.
