Pigeons Playing Ping Pong won’t get Fooed again this Halloween when the band stages a pair of The Who Fighters concerts. The shows in Pennsylvania and Connecticut will see the Baltimore jam quartet mash up songs from The Who and Foo Fighters.
“Get ready to celebrate the best, the best, the best, the best of Who!!” The band wrote on social media on Tuesday. “We’re massive fans of The Who and Foo Fighters and can’t wait to funkify their catalogs in classic PPPP Halloween style next weekend!”
The band will celebrate Halloween early beginning on Friday, October 28th at the Sherman Theater in Stroudsburg, PA. The following night, Pigeons will head to College Street Music Hall in New Haven, CT and finish out the run. Tickets for both shows are on sale via the band’s website.

This year’s The Who Fighters follows a rich history of mash-up Halloween concerts for Pigeons Playing Ping Pong. Last year, the band staged three nights of Daft Side of the Moon shows across Washington, D.C., Pennsylvania, and Ohio. In the past, PPPP has also presented Stop Making Cake, Red Hot Sargent Peppers, Dead Zeppelin, and more.
Pigeons Playing Ping Pong’s decision also comes as the music world continues to mourn the loss of Foo Fighters drummer Taylor Hawkins, who died in March. Last month witnessed a pair of star-studded tribute concerts for the late musician at Wembley Stadium in London and The Kia Forum in Inglewood, CA.
