Foo Fighters to revisit ’95 cities for the Van tour
Foo Fighters will revisit the cities in which they played their first-ever live shows to commemorate their 25th anniversary as a band.
Foo Fighters, led by ex-Nirvana drummer Dave Grohl, made their live debut on 23 February 1995 at the tiny Jambalaya Club in Arcata, California. The Van tour 2020 – named for the Dodge Ram van (pictured) that took them around North America in 1995 – sees the band play many of the same cities as they did 25 years, albeit in considerably larger venues.
The in-the-round Van tour kicks off on 12 April at the 18,422-capacity Talking Stick Resort Arena in Phoenix, Arizona, and concludes on 20 May at the FirstOntario Centre (19,000-cap.) in Hamilton, Ontario.
Tickets for the Van tour are on general sale at 10am local time this Friday (21 February).
