Foo Fighters have gradually been filling up their calendar for the year with festival appearances across the globe, and now they’ve announced three headline shows in their home country.

The rock legends are set to play the Bank of New Hampshire Pavilion in Gilford, NH on May 24, Walmart AMP in Rogers, AR on June 14, and then two days later on June 16 they’ll head to Pelham, AL’s Oak Mountain Amphitheatre.

Tickets for all three gigs go on general sale at 10am local time on Friday, March 3.

The Foos announced on December 31, 2022 that they would continue following drummer Taylor Hawkins’ tragic death – but they will be “a different band” without him.

“As we say goodbye to the most difficult and tragic year that our band has ever known, we are reminded of how thankful we are for the people that we love and cherish most, and for the loved ones who are no longer with us,” the wrote in a statement.

“Foo Fighters were formed 27 years ago to represent the healing power of music and a continuation of life. And for the past 27 years out fans have built a worldwide community, a devoted support system that has helped us all get through the darkest of times together. A place to share our joy and our pain, our hopes and fears, and to join in a chorus of life together through music. Without Taylor, we never would have become the band that we were – and without Taylor, we know that we’re going to be a different band going forward.

“We also know that you, the fans, meant as much to Taylor as he meant to you. And we know that when we see you again – and we will soon – he’ll be there in spirit with all of us every night.”
