Foo Fighters Confirm July 4 Show Is Still Happening

Credit: Hayley MaddenAfter Dave Grohl's broken leg forced Foo Fighters to cancel the remainder of their European tour, many were worried that the band's massive North American stadium tour, which is scheduled to begin July 4 in Washington, D.C., would also be in jeopardy. However, a statement from the band's rep confirms that the tour will indeed kick off with the July 4 show as planned.

"Foo Fighters begin North American tour dates with July 4 20th anniversary blowout," reads the statement. "Can't f**king wait for the 4th!" the band adds. "See you at home, D.C."

At the D.C. show, Foo Fighters will celebrate the 20th anniversary of their self-titled debut album, which was released July 4, 1995. The show also will feature performances by Heart, Joan Jett & The Blackhearts, Buddy Guy, Gary Clark Jr., LL Cool J featuring DJ Z-Trip, Trouble Funk and Trombone Shorty.

Foo Fighters' tour is then scheduled to continue July 6 in Camden, New Jersey with support from Royal Blood.

Among Foo Fighters' canceled shows were their headlining appearances at England's Glastonbury and Belgium's Rock Werchter festivals, which occurred this past weekend. Florence + the Machine headlined instead at Glastonbury, while Faith No More performed in place of the Foos at Rock Werchter.
