Foo Fighters Not Done Performing; Will Play at Democratic National Convention
Despite hasty reports to the contrary, Dave Grohl and company have not called it quits after their Reading Festival show.
Dave Grohl gave Foo Fighter fans quite the scare Monday night, telling the audience at England’s Reading Festival that the performance would be “the last show of the tour” and “the last show for a long time.” But not to worry – the Foos still have a few shows lined up in the near future.
While hasty fans and reports misinterpreted Grohl’s comments as news that the veteran band was splitting, that’s simply not the case. And for those worried that they might have missed the Foos' final performance, there will be at least four shows in the next month.
First, Foo Fighters are scheduled to perform at a Rock the Vote event Sept. 5 at the Democratic National Convention in Charlotte, N.C.
The Grammy-winning band also will play Sept. 21 at the Midtown Music Festival in Atlanta, Sept. 22 at the DeLuna Fest in Pensacola Beach, Fla., and Sept. 29 at the Global Festival in New York's Central Park.
It’s also worth noting that the banner atop the band’s tour page on their website reads: “We are coming for you, too. More shows being added here soon.”
So not to worry, Foo fans, there undoubtedly will be more rocking to come -- though after touring for more than a year, the boys probably deserve a break.
