As its 2017 U.S. leg resumes with tonight’s sold out show in Madison WI, Foo Fighters’ Concrete and Gold Tour is fast approaching 750,000 tickets sold in North America alone.

Since kicking off October 7 with the band’s triumphant headline set before some 30,000+ true rock believers at its own CalJam 17 festival, the domestic leg of the tour supporting the international #1 Concrete and Gold (Roswell Records/RCA Records) has played to capacity crowds in Washington DC, Richmond VA, Greensboro NC, Cincinnati OH and more. Among the 2017-2018 dates that have sold out well in advance are Houston, Dallas, Tampa, Philadelphia, the 45,500-capacity Rogers Centre in Toronto, and three nights in the New York area: two at Madison Square Garden and one at the Northwell Health at Jones Beach Theater.

The 2017 Concrete and Gold Tour winds down with a recently announced New Years Eve Show at The Chelsea at The Cosmopolitan in Las Vegas. The tour’s North American run resumes April 18 in Austin, Texas and will continue through the band’s July 29 return to Chicago’s Wrigley Field, a July 21-22 encore doubleheader at Boston’s Fenway Park, and more. Tickets for all shows are on sale now, with the exception of Chicago, which goes on sale to the general public Friday, November 10.

Foo Fighters kicked off the first U.S. leg of the Concrete and Gold Tour October 12 with an intimate show by FF standards—the grand opening of The Anthem in Washington DC—a performance that USA Today noted “transformed the venue into a raucous rock cathedral.” In the days since, Foo Fighters have continued to storm through sold out arenas in Richmond VA, Greensboro SC, Cincinnati and more. The first Foo Fighters global trek since the 20th Anniversary tour which placed #5 in 2015’s top grossing world tours, the Concrete and Gold Tour has seen the Foos reaching new peaks of their estimable powers. “Foo Fighters keep going and going and going in epic Greensboro show,” wrote the Charlotte Observer, “If there’s one thing you can count on lately when you walk into a Foo Fighters concert, it’s that you probably won’t get home until tomorrow.” The Richmond Times-Dispatch reported, “Having played and sung all night with a seemingly endless store of energy, Grohl noted as midnight approached, ‘I’m going to feel like I was run over by a truck tomorrow.’” And the Washington Post called the Anthem opener “a rock-and-roll clinic from Foo Fighters,” adding “when it was time to officially open the venue… the Anthem called in the only band with the local roots and international fame that could pull it off: Foo Fighters… That’s exactly what Grohl and friends did, treating the Anthem like a new leather jacket: turning something that glimmers with newness and making it feel as cozy as a childhood home.”

For further updates on the 2017-2018 Concrete and Gold Tour, continue to check www.foofighters.com.

Foo Fighters are Dave Grohl, Taylor Hawkins, Nate Mendel, Chris Shiflett, Pat Smear and Rami Jaffee.

“Their most epic statement yet—their best in years too… worthy of the ‘60s and ‘70s rock gods”—PEOPLE
 
“Grohl and the Foos rework rock history into an album that pays homage to, and uses their love for, the late greats to reinvigorate the band. It’s an album for rock fans and rock stars: The Foo Fighters rank among the best of both.”—AV CLUB
 
“Their most balanced record yet… adds big-studio texture without diluting the band’s raw tumult… The highlight is ‘The Sky Is a Neighborhood,’ a hulking dream-metal anthem: ‘Trouble to the right and left,’ Grohl sings, driving into the darkness with a Bic lighter raised to the heavens.”—ROLLING STONE
 
“Easily the finest album of the Foo Fighters’ 20-plus year recording career, an artistic breakthrough that hopefully marks the start of an exciting new era in the band’s continued musical odyssey.”—POPMATTERS

Foo Fighters’ ninth studio album Concrete and Gold has entered the Billboard 200 at #1, with sales of nearly 130,000 copies in the first week since its September 15 release on Roswell Records/RCA Records.

The second FF album to hit #1 in the U.S.–the first being 2011’s Wasting Light—Concrete and Gold has also posted the band’s biggest ever first week numbers outside its home country. At press time, the album’s world domination included #1 debuts in a total of eleven countries: The U.S., the UK (the band’s fourth UK #1), Australia (its seventh Australian #1), New Zealand (its sixth #1 in New Zealand), Canada (the band’s third Canadian #1), Ireland (first FF #1 since 2002), Norway, Austria, Greece, Japan and the Netherlands—the latter three territories seeing their first #1 Foo Fighters record. Additionally, Concrete and Gold bowed at #2 in Germany, Sweden, Italy and Belgium, #3 in Finland, and #9 in France, marking the band’s first French top 10 debut.

Additional #1 debuts are expected as international sales numbers are tallied throughout the coming week.

Concrete and Gold’s arrival was most recently heralded by “The Sky Is A Neighborhood,” visually realized as a Grohl-directed kaleidoscopic sci-fi mini-epic as hypnotic as the slow burning stadium stomper that gave it life. The run-up to Concrete and Gold began just as auspiciously, with the June 1 surprise release of the Billboard Mainstream Rock #1 smash summer anthem of 2017, “Run.” With more than 2 million YouTube views in its first 24 hours, “Run” rocketed into the top 5 of the iTunes video chart and the top of the 15 iTunes singles chart—quickly amassing the highest first-day numbers of any single in the Foo Fighters’ career. And now finally 2017’s most massive and ambitious rock n roll opus is available to all as it sits atop the global charts.

Concrete and Gold will naturally be supported with an extensive trek of the arena, stadium and festival stages of the world. The U.S. leg kicks off October 7 with the band’s Cal Jam 17 festival at Glen Helen Regional Park in San Bernardino, CA: a non-stop 100% live 12-hour rock n roll extravaganza featuring Queens Of The Stone Age, Cage The Elephant, Liam Gallagher, The Kills, Royal Blood, Japandroids, Wolf Alice, Bob Mould, The Struts, Bully, Circa Waves, Babes in Toyland, Adia Victoria, Fireball Ministry, The Obsessed, Pinky Pinky, Starcrawler, White Reaper… as well as camping, carnival rides, a water park, attractions, a mobile recording studio & so much more. On Friday night, October 6, campers will also experience the world’s best Go-Go band Big Tony & Trouble Funk, an outdoor movie theater and many other surprises.

For further information, go to Caljamfest.com.Concrete and Gold was written and performed by Foo Fighters, produced by Greg Kurstin and Foo Fighters, and mixed by Darrell Thorp. Foo Fighters are Dave Grohl, Taylor Hawkins, Nate Mendel, Chris Shiflett, Pat Smear and Rami Jaffee.

One surprise summer rock anthem coupled with a video of the band doing the senior citizen time warp, one extraterrestrial opus complete with floating children, and one “search for hope in this day and age where you feel as if you’re fighting for your life with every passing moment, and everything is on the line” and now finally…

… 2017’s most massive and ambitious rock n roll opus has arrived: September 15 is here and so is Foo Fighters’ all new ninth studio album Concrete and Gold, released on this day A.D. Roswell Records/RCA Records.

Written and performed by Foo Fighters, produced by Greg Kurstin and Foo Fighters, and mixed by Darrell Thorp, Concrete and Gold is eleven songs that push Foo Fighters’ melodic and hard rock extremes like never before—and early critical notices have been fittingly over the top, shaping up to be the most positive of Foo Fighters’ monolithic career:

“Turbocharged… a steady supply of fierce riffs, anthem-topping melodies and believable angst… Foo Fighters keep honing their skills.”—THE NEW YORK TIMES

“Arguably the biggest American rock band of the past 20 years”—ROLLING STONE

“There are some real impactful sun-through-the-clouds harmonies all across the album, reminiscent of Abbey Road’s choir-like accents that made weightless rock songs with real meat on their bones… the best Foo Fighters album of this century… Perhaps we have a few superheroes left above ground after all.”—STEREOGUM

“This is thrilling, heroic rock.”—ASSOCIATED PRESS

“Stretches Grohl’s melodic capacities into unsuspecting chord changes that seesaw delightfully atop White Album harmonies”—CONSEQUENCE OF SOUND

“Rock’s reigning kings get an infusion of power and pop… The Foos go for more artistically than they have in years and succeed every time.”—NEWSDAY

“One of the true landmark albums set to drop this fall.”—UPROXX

“All the gems are hidden in plain sight… Their sound doesn’t age… there’s no one else like them anymore: They’re a mainstream of one.”—VULTURE

Concrete and Gold’s arrival was most recently heralded by the straightforward FF signature burner “The Line.” Prior to that, “The Sky Is A Neighborhood” was visually realized as a Grohl-directed kaleidoscopic sci-fi mini-epic as hypnotic as the slow burning rock stomper that gave it life. The run-up to Concrete and Gold began just as auspiciously, with the June 1 surprise release of the Billboard Mainstream Rock #1 smash “Run.” With more than 2 million YouTube views in its first 24 hours, “Run” rocketed into the top 5 of the iTunes video chart and the top of the 15 iTunes singles chart—quickly amassing the highest first-day numbers of any single in the Foo Fighters’ career.

Also premiering on the day of Concrete and Gold’s release is “The Making of Concrete and Gold,” an animated featurette written by narrator and main toon Dave Grohl, directed by Visual Creatures and illustrated by Joe Garber. For anyone who’s ever wondered what birds, bees, chicken wings, Justin Timberlake and Paul McCartney have in common, the answers are all there in the animated rockumentary “The Making of Concrete and Gold,” which can be enjoyed over and over at http://smarturl.it/FFMCG.

Concrete and Gold will naturally be supported with a grueling trek of the arena, stadium and festival stages of the world.

“Arguably the biggest American rock band of the past 20 years”—ROLLING STONE Cover Story, September 21 Issue

The countdown to the year’s most massive and ambitious melodic hard rock magnum opus just started ticking that much faster: “The Line,” the newest advance offering from Foo Fighters’ about to be released ninth studio album Concrete and Gold, has been made available as an instant grat with pre-ordersplaced in advance of the new record’s September 15 release on Roswell Records/RCA Records.

“The Line” pairs a signature Foo Fighters propulsive melody with an urgent heartfelt lyric and rousing chorus described by composer Dave Grohl as “a search for hope in this day and age where you feel as if you’re fighting for your life with every passing moment, and everything is on the line.”

“The Line” is the third of Concrete and Gold’s eleven songs to be unveiled ahead of the album’s impending arrival, the second being “The Sky Is A Neighborhood,” visually realized as a Grohl-directed  kaleidoscopic sci-fi mini-epic as massive as the slow burning rock anthem that gave it life—one of the most striking entries of the Foo Fighters’ video canon, and the first one to score the band coverage on SPACE.COM. The run-up to Concrete and Gold began just as auspiciously, with the June 1 surprise release of the Billboard Mainstream Rock #1 smash “Run.” With more than 2 million YouTube views in its first 24 hours, “Run” rocketed into the top 5 of the iTunes video chart and the top of the 15 iTunes singles chart—quickly amassing the highest first-day numbers of any single in the Foo Fighters’ career.

Birds. Bees. Chicken Wings. Justin Timberlake. A Beatle… Find out what these things have in common when the animated rockumentary “The Making of Concrete and Gold” arrives on September 15.

To hold you over until then, here’s a taste https://youtu.be/NKcs-pa-IzM

Concrete and Gold will naturally be supported with a grueling trek of the arena, stadium and festival stages of the world.

Following the overwhelmingly massive reception to the MTV Video Music Award-nominated, Mainstream Rock #1 track “Run,” Foo Fighters have delivered a second consecutive contender for rock anthem of 2017 in the form of “The Sky Is A Neighborhood.” Described by Grohl as “the biggest thing sonically that we’ve ever done,” “The Sky Is A Neighborhood” is also the piece de resistance that effectively completed Foo Fighters’ forthcoming ninth album, Concrete and Gold.

“One night I was lying out looking up at stars,” Grohl recalls. “Just imagining all of these stars as places that have life on them as well, and I decided that the sky is a neighborhood, that we need to keep our shit together in order to survive in this universe full of life. But I had no music yet. I just had the title. So everyday I would walk around, kind of humming this thing in my head.”

The melody of the song came to Grohl without even touching a guitar,so  it follows that “The Sky Is A Neighborhood” would come just as naturally to the band: the song was recorded in a single afternoon by Grohl and fellow Foo Fighters Taylor Hawkins, Nate Mendel, Chris Shiflett, Pat Smear and Rami Jaffee. “And once we were finished,” Grohl says. “I thought ‘OK now we have an album. This is it and we’re done’…  as we were mixing, I realized that we’d actually done what we set out do: to make this gigantic Foo Fighters record but with Greg Kurstin’s sense of jazz and melody and arrangement, something that we’d never done before.”

Of course “The Sky Is A Neighborhood” deserved an equally ambitious visual representation, and together with director of photography Brandon Trost and with production by Therapy Studios, director Grohl, Foo Fighters—and family—have more than delivered: “The Sky Is A Neighborhood” is a kaleidoscopic sci-fi mini-epic as massive as the slow burning rock anthem that gave it life. Hypnotic swirls of color of extraterrestrial origin, glowing eyes, levitating children and more combine to create an otherworldly cinematic palette equal parts beautiful and creepy—the result being arguably the most striking video in the Foo Fighters’ multiple award-winning canon.

Simultaneously, Foo Fighters are launching a constellation viewer, enabling every FF fan to transform to their phone into a tool for exploring the sky in their neighborhood: Go to https://sky.foofighters.com/ from your phone to configure a realistic constellation map in the viewer’s 3D sphere, then let it identify the constellations in your night sky—all while tiny Foo Fighters soundtrack your explorations at the bottom of the screen.

“The Sky Is A Neighborhood” is the second song to be unveiled from Concrete and Gold, following the June 1 surprise release of the Billboard Mainstream Rock Chart-topping, MTV Video Music Award-nominated “Run.” With more than 2 million YouTube views in its first 24 hours, “Run” smashed into the top 5 of the iTunes video chart and the top of the 15 iTunes singles chart—quickly amassing the highest first-day numbers of any single in the Foo Fighters’ career. Both songs were performed during Foo Fighters’ epic 3.5 hour 32-song marathon Lollapalooza aftershow August 4 at Chicago’s Metro club, and are sure to be live staples of the coming Foo Fighters U.S. tour. That tour kicks off October 7 with the band’s Cal Jam 17 festival at Glen Helen Regional Park in San Bernardino, CA: a non-stop 100% live 12-hour rock n roll extravaganza featuring Queens Of The Stone Age, Cage The Elephant, Liam Gallagher, The Kills, Royal Blood, Japandroids, Wolf Alice, Bob Mould, The Struts, Bully, Circa Waves, Babes in Toyland, Adia Victoria, Fireball Ministry, The Obsessed, Pinky Pinky, Starcrawler, White Reaper… as well as camping, carnival rides, a water park, attractions, a mobile recording studio & so much more. On Fridaynight, October 6, campers will also experience the world’s best Go-Go band Big Tony & Trouble Funk, an outdoor movie theater and many other surprises.

“A dynamic trip across the rock spectrum” – ROLLING STONE

“Some of Hawkins’ most vivid songwriting yet” – ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY

Fresh off the presses, Taylor Hawkins proudly unleashes KOTA – his first ever album released under his own name, available NOW:

Amazon: http://smarturl.it/ KOTAamzn
Apple Music: http://smarturl.it/ KOTAapplem
iTunes: http://smarturl.it/ KOTAiTunes
Spotify: spoti.fi/2fjMTJb

Listeners were given a scorching preview ahead of KOTA’s release with first single “Range Rover Bitch,” hotly praised as “a dynamic trip across the rock spectrum…a blistering punk burst” (ROLLING STONE) and a “revved-up old-school riff-heavy pow-popper” (STEREOGUM).

Whatever KOTA means, the six-song mini-LP takes off like Queen on a skateboard, featuring Hawkins on lead vocals and nearly every instrument, with help from a few comrades in arms. From the hypnotic groove of opener “Range Rover Bitch” through the closing rave-up “I’ve Got Some Not Being Around You To Do Today,” KOTA mixes Hawkins’ chops and influences with a true-to-life cast of characters to create a meditation on life as a rockstar stranded in the suburbs. It’s a short, sweet series of vignettes, but one that still strives to honor the tradition of Blur’s Parklife and The Kinks’ Are The Village Green Preservation Society.
