Foo Fighters Postponing Select Dates on 25th Anniversary Tour
Things may have been tough starting out in a van, but Foo Fighters never had to deal with anything like this. The precautionary measures taken over the coronavirus have led Foo Fighters to postpone half of their 25th Anniversary "Van Tour."
Dubbed "The Van Tour," the trek was designed to visit the exact same itinerary of the band's first tour 25 years prior. However, the first five shows of the run have been put off for the time being. Rescheduled dates are listed below, along with a message from Dave Grohl himself about the postponement:
Hi, this is Dave. Remember me? The guy who wouldn’t even postpone a show when my goddamn leg was falling off?
Well… playing a gig with a sock full of broken bones is one thing, but playing a show when YOUR health and safety is in jeopardy is another…
We fuckin’ love you guys. So let’s do this right and rain check shit. The album is done, and it’s fuckin' killer. The lights and stage are in the trucks, ready to go. The SECOND we are given the go ahead, we’ll come tear shit up like we always do. Promise.
Now go wash your hands.
