Foo Fighters have announced that they will headline Virgin Festival 2008 at Toronto’s Island Park. They have also added to their US tour itinerary with newly announced dates at East Ruthorford, NJ among others. The band will continue to announce new dates over the next few weeks. Supergrass will be supporting on all U.S. summer shows.

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 Japan, Finland, and Australia, among others. The reviews of the band’s recently concluded American tour were glowing; the Houston Chronicle called the Foos “a band at the peak of its powers, in all respects,” and the Boston Globe described ringleader Dave Grohl as “the funniest, savviest, and most exciting frontman in rock ‘n’ roll in 2008.”

Stay tuned to for ticket information and further updates. Newly announced dates are underlined below. 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.
