Foo Fighters Announce 25th Anniversary "Van Tour"
GRAMMY-winning rock heroes the Foo Fighters will celebrate their 25th anniversary this year. The group has just announced that it will commemorate the milestone with their North American "Van Tour," in which they will revisit stops from their inaugural 1995 tour run, which saw some of the very first and most classic Foo Fighters performances.
The 10-date tour will kick off on April 12 at the Talking Stick Resort Arena in Phoenix and will wrap in Hamilton, Ontario with a May 20 show at the FirstOntario Centre.
Not only can guests expect "all night rock-n-roll marathons" from the band's veterans, but each show will also host a preview of the band's founder and lead vocalist David Grohl's new documentary WHAT DRIVES US, according to a statement. It is reported that the picture explores the physical and psychological impacts of touring in a van or bus through interviews and anecdotes from the Fighters themselves as well as bands like Black Flag, Metallica, The Beatles and others.
