Foo Fighters on Tour!

Dave GrohlDid you hear the news?  Foo Fighters are back touring.  Woo hoo!

But first, an aside on how much I adore Dave Grohl.  The front man had decidedly turned down every opportunity to appear on the Fox hit show “Glee” and he is A-OK with that.  He’s upset with “Glee” creator Ryan Murphy for being presumptuous that all musicians want to be featured on the show.

Grohl told Hollywood Reporter, “”You shouldn’t have to do [expletive deleted] ‘Glee.’ And then the guy who created ‘Glee’ is so offended that we’re not, like, begging to be on his [expletive deleted] show. … I watched 10 minutes [of it]. It’s not my thing.

“Slash was the first one. [Murphy] wanted to do Guns N’ Roses, and Slash is like, ‘I hate [expletive deleted] musicals. It’s worse than “Grease.”‘ Then [Murphy’s] like, ‘Well, of course he’d say that. He’s a washed-up ol’ rock star. That’s what they [expletive deleted] do.'”

“And then Kings of Leon say, ‘No, we don’t want to be on your show.’ And then he’s like, ‘Snotty little [expletive deleted] …’ And it’s just like, ‘Dude, maybe not everyone loves “Glee.” Me included.'”


At any rate, back to the topic at hand.  The Foo Fights are gearing up for a late spring tour in the US with featured acts from Motorhead and Biffy Clyro.  Their opening show will be at the BOK Center in Tulsa, K on May 17th.  This is their first major tour since its 2007-08 international “Echoes, Silence, Patience & Grace” tour.

Currently, only 5 shoes have been announced and will conclude on May 26 at the Adams Center in Missoula, MT.  Other scheduled stops thus far include: May 18 at Verizon Center in Little Rock, AR; May 20 at FedEx Forum in Memphis, TN; and May 23 at Mid America Center in Council Bluffs, IA.

The Foo Fighters also have two festival dates scheduled  including the Hangout Music Festival on May 21 in Gulf Shores, AL and Sasquatch! Music  Festival on May 27th in Quincy, WA.

Their 7th studio album, “Wasting Light” is scheduled to be released on April 12th.  On April 16, 2011 the band will also release Medium “Rare”, a collection of cover songs.
