Foo Fighters have announced another six headline shows. The band have added Spokane, WA; Salt Lake City, UT; Lake Tahoe, NV; Virginia Beach, CA; Phoenix, AZ and El Paso, TX to a run of shows that begins in May and currently ends in October, a total of 25 shows on a schedule that criss-crosses The US and also visits Germany, Japan and Brazil. Full dates below (additions in bold).

Support at the six new shows will come from The Breeders. Tickets are on pre-sale now, with a general sale beginning on Friday at 10am local time. 

Last week it was announced that Foo Fighters would headline the opening night of The Atlantis, a 450-capacity club in Washington, DC, on May 30. The venue is a near-replica of the original 9:30 Club, which operated in the city from 1980 to 1996, and holds a special place in Grohl's heart. 

"That was our church," he said in 2021. "That’s where we all played first. That’s where REM played first. That’s where the Chili Peppers played first. That’s where Nirvana played first."

Tickets to the show were allocated via lottery. 

Foo Fighters are yet to confirm who'll fill the drum stool left vacant by the death of Taylor Hawkins in March last year. "Without Taylor, we never would have become the band that we were," they said in a statement in December. "And without Taylor, we know that we’re going to be a different band going forward."
