Foo Fighters Announce Plans For 25th Anniversary Tour, Including Michigan Date (And Maybe More?)
Written by Sean Cantwell on February 18, 2020
Well, Dave Grohl said 2020 was going to be “an INSANE year full of some seriously crazy shit,” and it appears that he may yet deliver on that. Earlier today the Foo Fighters announced the kickoff to their 25th anniversary tour with 10 stops in the cities they played on their first tour in 1995, which includes Grand Rapids, where the band will make a stop at Van Andel Arena on May 12th.
BUT… that may not be all. According to a report at Consequence of Sound, the band’s press release hints at an even more ambitious plan:
The 11-date trek will see the Foos returning to cities they played on their first-ever tour back in 1995. They’ll be playing in the round at a number of arenas, because as a press release notes, performing in the same club venues they did back then would be “too insane…” However, the PR goes on to ask, “Or would it?”, before teasing fans to “stay tuned for the answer to that question. Or answers…”
A search of setlist.fm doesn’t yield any Grand Rapids tour dates that year, but the band did play Saint Andrews Hall in Detroit in May and August of 1995. Is it possible we may see them make an appearance at that venue as part of the anniversary festivities? We’ll keep you posted…
