Foo Fighters have announced their first headlining shows since the tragic death of drummer Taylor Hawkins in March 2022.

The band recently vowed to continue on in a year-end statement to fans, and since then, Foo Fighters have been named as a headliner for a number of major festivals including Bonnaroo, Boston Calling Music Festival, Sonic Temple Art & Music Festival, Germany’s Rock Am Ring, Japan’s Fuji Rock Festival, Sea.Hear.Now, and more. The band has now added some headlining shows to its 2023 tour schedule, which will be the group’s first performances since Taylor Hawkins’s death except for the two star-studded tribute shows in his honor in London and L.A. No announcement has been made as to who will fill in for the late drummer.

The newly announced tour dates include shows at Bank of New Hampshire Pavilion in Gilford, NH (5/24), Walmart AMP in Rogers, AR (6/14), and Oak Mountain Amphitheatre in Pelham, AL (6/16).

A ticket presale for the newly announced Foo Fighters 2023 tour dates begins today, Tuesday, February 28th at 12 p.m. ET with code: F2xZ3r7F. Tickets will go on sale to the general public on Friday, March 3rd at 10 a.m. local venue time. For a full list of Foo Fighters tour dates and ticketing details, visit the band’s website.

Dave Grohl also recently made headlines barbecuing for about 450 homeless L.A. residents during a 16-hour volunteer shift at The Hope Mission shelter. The 54-year-old rock star fraternized with other volunteers, staff members, and guests living at the shelter and prepared a delicious spread of ribs, brisket, pork shoulder, and side dishes including cabbage, coleslaw, beans, and mac and cheese.
