Foo Fighters have added seven new dates to the next North American leg of the band's Concrete And Gold world tour due to popular demand. The new shows begin on October 8th at Talking Stick Resort Arena in Phoenix will hit Denver, Kansas City, St. Louis, Detroit and Milwaukee before finishing up on October 18th at the XCel Energy Center in St. Paul, Minnesota.
Tickets for the new dates go on sale to the public at 9:00 a.m. local time on Friday (January 26th), with the exception of Detroit, which goes on sale at at 11 a.m. local time on Thursday (January 25th). The tour itself starts on April 18th in Austin, Texas, with dates throughout the spring, summer and fall.
- While the Foos' popularity in North America seems to be skyrocketing, drummer Taylor Hawkins explained not long ago that that wasn't always the case: "As a band, we've always actually been a little bit bigger outside of America. England, we do really well and Australia we do really well and a lot of parts of Europe we do well. And we do well in America, but mainly in the big cities, you know. We're not huge necessarily in the Midwest and places like that because, frankly, America's big."
- The first North American leg of the tour took place last summer and fall, with the band now on a just-underway jaunt through Australia and New Zealand.
- Foo Fighters are on the road behind their ninth studio LP, Concrete And Gold, which debuted at Number One on the Billboard 200 album chart last September.
