[UPDATE 4/11/23]: Foo Fighters have added a number of new headlining shows to their 2023 tour schedule. The Dave Grohl-fronted band’s upcoming slate of festival plays and amphitheater dates will mark its first official performances since the untimely death of drummer Taylor Hawkins in March of last year.

Newly added headlining shows include August dates in Spokane, WA (8/4), Salt Lake City, UT (8/8), and Stateline, NV (8/10) featuring support from The Breeders. Foo Fighters have also added a September 19th show in Virginia Beach, VA, an October 3rd show in Phoenix, AZ, and an October 5th date in El Paso, TX.

Even as the band’s 2023 tour schedule continues to fill up, it remains unclear who will man the drum kit when Foo Fighters finally take the stage. Speculation swirled in fan communities in late March when an article by the U.K.’s The Sun cited an “insider” who claimed that Matt Cameron (Pearl Jam) and Atom Willard (Angels & Airwaves) were the front-runners for the gig. In a later post, however, Cameron refuted the claim: “FYI the internet rumors are false,” he said. “I haven’t joined the Foos.”

The only Foo Fighters performances since the March 2022 death of Hawkins came as part of a pair of star-studded tribute shows in the drummer’s honor in London and L.A. in late 2022. Stand-in drummers for the Foos’ abbreviated sets at those shows included Taylor’s son, Shane Hawkins, Travis Barker (Blink 182), Josh Freese, Brad Wilk (Rage Against The Machine), Rufus Taylor (The Darkness), Nandi Bushell, and more.

[2/28/23]: 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.

In other Foo Fighters news, a colorful new Foo Fighters pinball machine was announced by Stern. 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.
