Foo Fighters’ self-titled debut album came out in 1995, and since that was 25 years ago now, the group is celebrating. Dave Grohl and company are set to mark the occasion with a “Van Tour,” on which the band will revisit areas in which they performed during their debut tour back in ’95.
ARE YOU READY???
Join the Foos in commemorating their 25th anniversary by revisiting stops along their 1995 tour! IN THE ROUND! 🤘

The announced concerts are all arena shows, but a press release suggests some club shows could be worked in the mix. The release notes that the tour will take place “in arenas this time, because aside from many of those clubs on that 1995 trek having since ceased to exist, squeezing a 2020 FF show into the few that are still around would just be too insane… or would it? Stay tuned for the answer to that question. Or answers…”
Additionally, each performance will be preceded by a preview of Grohl’s What Drives Us documentary, which looks at the life of bands touring in vans and features interviews with members of The Beatles, Dead Kennedys, Metallica, and others.
