Foo Fighters will reopen yet another iconic music venue with the band’s “surprise” concert at 9:30 Club tonight, September 9th. The Washington, D.C. club has been closed since the pandemic began and will reopen its doors for a special engagement from the alt-rockers, “Surprise! At The Club!”
This comes as the latest grand reopening hosted by the Dave Grohl-led outfit. Back in June, Foo Fighters played the first concert at New York’s Madison Square Garden in 460 days since the pandemic began, featuring a guest appearance by Dave Chappelle. The band was later scheduled to blow the doors back open at L.A.’s The Forum on July 17th, but that show was rescheduled due to a positive COVID test within the band organization. Those who held onto their tickets for the rescheduled August 26th show were rewarded with a surprise guest sit-in from 11-year-old drum prodigy, internet sensation, and Grohl’s bitter rival Nandi Bushell.
Though tickets for the 9:30 Club show are already sold out, Foo Fighters have also announced a run of West Coast tour dates. The four-show jaunt begins on December 2nd at the Park Theater in Las Vegas, NV, followed on the 4th by another Park Theater show. The run continues on December 7th at Golden 1 Center in Sacramento, CA before wrapping on December 9th at Save Smart Center in Fresno, CA. These shows add to Foo Fighters’ already impressive tour schedule for 2021—2022.
Tickets for the newly announced Foo Fighters West Coast shows go on sale on Friday at 10 a.m. PT via the band’s website. Click here for a full list of tour dates. For those attending the 9:30 Club show, the venue’s parent company I.M.P. has introduced safety policies requiring proof of full vaccination or a negative COVID test taken within 72 hours.
