Hope and pray, and Foo Fighters just might come your way.
It seems that the band is taking the name of its new album, One by One, to heart, as that's how the Foos are announcing their upcoming tour dates. With the exception of shows in New York and Los Angeles, each stop on their eight-city U.S. outing will be revealed on its on-sale date, according to an RCA spokesperson. Tickets will be made available approximately a week before each show date.
The concerts confirmed thus far are scheduled for Los Angeles' Wiltern Theatre on October 22, coinciding with the release date of One by One (see "Foo Fighters Cross The Rock Line On One By One") and New York's the Supper Club on Halloween. Tickets go on sale Thursday (October 10) for the latter show, which is being sponsored by local radio station WXRK and is being billed as the Halloween Foos-Ball & Costume Party.
Following the U.S. trek, a European tour will kick off November 16 and end December 19. In the new year, the Foos will head to New Zealand for the annual Big Day Out festival tour, which kicks off January 17 in Auckland, New Zealand (see "Foos, Queens, Deftones Prepare For A Big Day Down Under").
Dave Grohl and company will take a break from their U.S. headlining tour on October 26 to take part in Neil Young's annual Bridge School benefit concerts, along with Radiohead's Thom Yorke, Tenacious D and Vanessa Carlton (see "Foos, Thom Yorke, Vanessa Carlton To Play Bridge School").
