Foo Fighters have finally revealed their plans for this year.
Since the passing of the late Foo Fighters drummer, Taylor Hawkins, the band did not speak a single word regarding their future plans. Only a month ago, the band delivered their official statement on what’s ahead for them. The post reads as follows:
“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, our 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 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.”
Now, it was confirmed that the band is set to perform at the Boston Calling Music Festival on May 26, the Sonic Temple Art & Music Festival in Columbus, Ohio, on May 28, and Bonnaroo in Manchester, Tenn., on June 18. The upcoming shows will mark the band’s first live performance since the previous tribute concerts for the late drummer and the first ones without Hawkins.
Queens of the Stone Age, Alanis Morissette, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, the National, King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard, the Flaming Lips, and Maren Morris are also performing alongside Foo Fighters. At Sonic Temple, other named bands on the four-day bill include Tool, Kiss, Rob Zombie, Suicidal Tendencies, and Anti-Flag.
Meanwhile, Foo Fighters will do the headlining act on the final day of Bonnaroo and will be performing alongside Kendrick Lamar, Paramore, Lil Nas X, Korn, Pixies, Sheryl Crow, My Morning Jacket, and Fleet Foxes.
