UPDATE (11/30): Hours after announcing their 2022 tour dates, the Foo Fighters have axed one date in Minneapolis due to a dispute with the venue over its Covid-19 vaccine requirements. The show was set to take place Aug. 3 at the Huntington Bank Stadium, which is home to the University of Minnesota football team. In a statement posted on Twitter, Foo Fighters said, “Due to Huntington Bank Stadium’s refusal to agree to the band’s Covid safety measures, Foo Fighters are unable to perform at that venue. We apologize for any inconvenience and are working on finding a suitable replacement — one that will prioritize the health of everyone working and attending the show.”
Per the Minneapolis Star Tribune, a rep for the University of Minnesota said in a statement, “The University declined to change its existing protocols for large events, which have been effective since implemented.”We continue to encourage everyone to get vaccinated, wear a mask when in large crowds, and take appropriate steps to protect public and personal health.”
The Foo Fighters are set to return to the road in 2022, with the band announcing a string of 17 shows between May and August.
The group will start things off with three scattered shows in May, followed by a proper summer run that will launch July 17 at Citi Field in New York and wrap with two nights at the Banc of California Stadium in Los Angeles, Aug. 18 and 20. The run will also include a set at the Osheaga Festival in Montreal on July 29. See tickets here.
In a press release, Foo Fighters said they would be announcing special guests for the tour soon on their website and social media channels.
Tickets for the headlining shows will go on sale Dec. 3 at 10 a.m. local time. Citi cardholders will have access to presale tickets from Nov. 30 at 12 p.m. ET through Dec. 2 at 10 p.m. local time via Citi Entertainment.
Foo Fighters’ 2022 run will mark their most extensive trek since releasing their 10th studio album, Medicine at Midnight, back in February. The group played a handful of gigs over the summer, and in July helped re-open Madison Square Garden, playing the first full-capacity show at the famed NYC arena since the Covid-19 lockdown.
Last week, Foo Fighters received three Grammy nominations for Medicine at Midnight, with the LP receiving a Best Rock Album nod, while “Waiting on a War” and “Making a Fire” were nominated for Best Rock Song and Best Rock Performance, respectively. At the end of October, Foo Fighters were also inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame.
