The Foo Fighters have been busy this year. Their new album Sonic Highways is out now and in case you haven't heard anything about it, was recorded in eight different studios in eight different cities across the country. The making of the album has been chronicled in an eight part mini series on HBO under the same name and has brought the American rock band back into the spotlight in a huge way. Dave Grohl had been speaking about a world tour to support the new album and series but had yet to announce North American tour dates until yesterday. The Foo's will play 29 shows across the country supported primarily by rock duo Royal Blood with the exception of their July 18th show at Fenway park where Grohl has asked local Boston underground heroes Mission of Burma to open. Tickets supposedly go on sale in three days on the 22nd with a heightened focus on getting tickets to fans directly so as to avoid hiked prices from scalpers who buy large amounts of tickets and list them on sites like StubHub. So get in line, pick up the phone or go to the Foo Fighters website to get tickets because they will no doubt sell fast and if you haven't already seen the Foo's live it is not something to be missed. With shows averaging three hours long, you definitely get your moneys worth and Grohl always has a few surprises to throw into the mix. The band exemplifies modern rock and roll and if you're a fan of the genre, this is a show you simply must see. Check out full details from Rolling Stone below.
