Fresh off their Grammy win for "All My Life," the Foo Fighters — minus Grammy crasher Nicholas "Sixx" King — will hit U.S. stages again beginning April 11 at the Henry J. Kaiser Arena in Oakland, California, according to a group spokesperson.
Nine dates have been announced for the tour to date, currently scheduled to wind up with a show on April 29 at the Tweeter Center in Camden, New Jersey. More dates will be announced soon.
The video for the Foos' next single, "Times Like These," is currently in post-production and should begin airing soon (see "Foo Fighters Approach 'Times Like These' Without Laughs").
Prior to the tour, bassist Nate Mendel will tune up by hitting the road with his side project, the Fire Theft, who will kick off a month of dates on Saturday with a show at the Glass House in Pomona, California.
Among the opening acts on the Foo Fighters tour are the Special Goodness, the side project of Weezer drummer Pat Wilson, whose second album, Land Air Sea, has just been released.
