Foo Fighters are touring this summer and an Irish gig is looking very likely

We're very confident that an Irish date will be announced.

This is a call to any Foo Fighters fans out there, Dave Grohl and company will tour the US and Europe next summer to mark their 25th anniversary.


Granted, that piece of information might make you feel everlong, but I'll stick around for their 25th anniversary tour.

Well, the band have announced that to mark their silver anniversary, they'll be playing in some of the same cities where the first Foo Fighters shows took place in 1995.

Beginning on 12 April at the Talking Stick Resort Arena in Phoenix, Arizona, the Foo Fighters’ 2020 Van Tour will do just that, hitting a number of the same spots that Dave Grohl, Nate Mendel and Pat Smear journeyed too in a Dodge van all those years ago.

The 2020 Van Tour show will also feature a very special opening attraction, a sneak peek at an excerpt from Dave Grohl’s brand new documentary What Drives Us


At present, the band haven't announced an Irish date yet but if they're true to their word about playing in the cities where they first played in 1995, then Dublin is bound to be a destination.

After all, the band played the SFX Hall back in 1995.

For those of a younger age, the venue had a standing capacity of 1,000 and hosted gigs until 2001 when the shows were moved the Ambassador Theatre. In 2006, the SFX Theater was demolished to make way for 41 apartments.

While nothing official has been announced yet, we fully expect Dave Grohl and co. to be playing in an Irish venue with a bigger capacity than 1,000!


In terms of the European dates and locations that the band have already announced, Foo Fighters will be playing in Berlin, Nickelsdorf, Milan,  Nimes, Valencia, and Lisbon.

We fully expect to see more dates added to their 2020 European tour.

Keep your eyes and ears peeled.
