Foo Fighters Add More U.S. Arena Dates

June 13, 2011
<div> <div>In the wake of the continuing success of the worldwide #1 album Wasting Light (Roswell/RCA) and the June 14 DVD and Blu-Ray release of the feature-length documentary Foo Fighters: Back &amp; Forth (Spitfire/Roswell/RCA), Foo Fighters have added another leg of dates to their U.S. arena tour.<br /> <br /> </div> Pre-sales for this next run of headline shows--which will run from October 9 in Denver CO through October 20 in Sacramento and also include a November 14 Newark &nbsp;NJ date--will begin 10 a.m. local time June 15.&nbsp;<br /> &nbsp;<br /> General on sales follow 10 a.m. local time June 17.<br /> &nbsp;<br /> Special guests for the October-November dates will be announced later.<br /> &nbsp;<br /> The October and November dates are the latest additions to a juggernaut of a worldwide campaign that currently has the band headlining European festivals, as well a sold out 130,000-capacity July 2-3 headline weekender at the UK's Milton Keynes Bowl. In addition, Foo Fighters were recently announced as a Lollapalooza 2011 headliner and have also added three more Canadian dates: October 25 in Vancouver, October 27 in Calgary and October 28 in Edmonton.<br /> <br /> The ever-expanding tour rides the relentless momentum of Foo Fighters' recently released seventh album Wasting Light, certified gold less than two months after debuting at #1 in a dozen countries. &nbsp;Wasting Light has also generated arguably the best critical notices of the band's 16-year career. The newly released Foo Fighters: Back &amp; Forth documentary, directed by Oscar winner James Moll, has done likewise, with a just-out four-star ROLLING STONE review raving "a classic rockumentary arc... Dave Grohl has lived an extraordinarily cinematic life."<br /> <br /> Grohl, Taylor Hawkins, Nate Mendel, Chris Shiflett and Pat Smear will be playing hits spanning the Foo Fighters' catalogue of multi-platinum arena anthems, including new staples such as the 13-week Modern Rock #1 "Rope" and "Walk," the band's latest single and subject of the brilliant Sam Jones-directed parody of the classic crime drama Falling Down. Already a viral sensation, the "Walk" clip has been viewed more than a million times since its June 2 premiere.<br /> <br /> More dates will be announced as they are confirmed.
