This spring, Foo Fighters make their return with a full festival docket. The band will perform at Boston Calling, Sonic Temple, Bonnaroo, and more. They mark Foo Fighters’ first official appearances as a band since the death of drummer Taylor Hawkins. Last year, Foo Fighters were slated to perform at Boston Calling as well as Welcome to Rockville, but canceled in the wake of Hawkins’ passing. While it remains unclear who will sit behind the kit, rock fans are enjoying a bittersweet moment of seeing the band’s name on festival bills again.
Foo Fighters’ last live performance was in Buenos Aires’ Hipódromo de San Isidro at Lollapalooza Argentina.
The Killers released their sixth studio album Imploding The Mirage back in August of 2020. Despite having to cancel the supporting tour, the album performed well. It peaked at No. 8 on the Billboard 200 and No. 1 on the Billboard Top Rock Albums chart. With live music at a standstill, the band uncharacteristically wasted no time getting to work on the follow-up. The result was Pressure Machine, which arrived almost exactly a year later to the day on August 13, 2021 and once again topped the Rock Albums chart.
The band’s massive Imploding the Mirage Tour wrapped up last October.
