After selling a staggering 163,000 tickets in 24 hours for their June 6 & 7 stand at London’s Wembley Stadium, Foo Fighters have set their sights on America. The band has confirmed the bulk of their first American tour in support of their new album Echoes, Silence, Patience & Grace (a handful of dates remain TBA). This will be the band’s biggest American tour to date and includes the Foos’ first ever show at New York’s Madison Square Garden. As on their warm up dates earlier this fall, core Foo Fighters Dave Grohl, Nate Mendel, Taylor Hawkins and Chris Shiflett will be joined by Pat Smear on guitar, Rami Jaffee on keyboards, Drew Hester on percussion, and Jessy Greene on strings.
Echoes, Silence, Patience & Grace is Foo Fighters’ sixth studio album and has proven itself a worthy addition to the band’s discography, as songs like ‘The Pretender’ and new single ‘Long Road To Ruin’ are holding their own every night alongside known barnburners like ‘My Hero’ and ‘Best Of You’. As Entertainment Weekly said of the new album, “the band has taken everything it’s always done best… and brought it to the next level.”
For fans who want to ensure themselves good seats and support a good cause at the same time, a limited quantity of premium tickets for a number of shows will be available only through Ticketmaster auctions. Auction proceeds will benefit local tree planting through TreeBank, an online donation system dedicated to urban forest tree planting. Each auction will run for approximately two weeks following each show’s on-sale date, and TreeBank will distribute auction proceeds to local “branches” for tree planting in every community on the Foo Fighters tour.

TreeBank is a program of TreeLink®, a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization that offers information to educate and work with government, professionals and volunteers in community forests. You can find more information about the program at the below links:
