Working around Dave Grohl’s presidential campaign schedule (see the March cover of Harp), Foo Fighters have announced the first several dates of their summer U.S. tour, including two nights at Red Rocks in Morrison, CO.

The U.S. summer tour extends what is shaping up to be an extraordinary year on the road – the Foos recently sold out their first ever show at Madison Square Garden, have sold out two June dates at London’s Wembley Stadium, and between now and July will visit Canada, Japan, Finland, and Australia, among others. The reviews of the American tour that concludes this week have been glowing; the New York Post called the Foos “one of the biggest and best bands in rock”, and the Arizona Republic described their show as “impressive support for the argument that Foo Fighters are America’s best rock band.”

Stay tuned to for ticket information and further updates. For more info on the tour and the Grammy-winning album Echoes, Silence, Patience & Grace, contact Steve Martin or Eliot Wadsworth at Nasty Little Man.
