Foo Fighters are set to return to road in 2023 for their first extended live outing since the tragic passing of drummer Taylor Hawkins in March 2022 (get tickets here). The group’s most recent performances came in late 2022 at the transatlantic tribute concerts dedicated to the late, beloved band member.
The upcoming tour includes a string of headlining shows, as well as festival stops at Bonnaroo and Boston Calling. The tour comes in support of Foo Fighters’ new album, But Here We Are.
Read on for more details.
What Is Foo Fighters’ Next Tour?
