Foo Fighters to Play All-Star 4th of July Stadium Show in Washington, D.C.

Nasty Little ManFoo Fighters have been highlighting their current HBO documentary series, Sonic Highways, with a series of intimate pop-up gigs in the cities featured in each episode. But they're gonna celebrate their 20th anniversary with just the opposite -- a blow-out, day-long, all-star stadium concert next July 4 in Washington, D.C.

Billed as the band's "amazing 20th anniversary" concert and their biggest headline engagement ever, Foo Fighters will also welcome to the stage at RFK Stadium an all-star lineup of musicians featured in Sonic Highways, each representing one of the eight cities saluted in both the documentary and the album, including Heart, Joan Jett & The Blackhearts, Buddy Guy, Gary Clark Jr., LL Cool J featuring DJ Z-Trip, Trouble Funk, and Trombone Shorty. The bill also promises "Fireworks!! Motorcycle rally!  BBQ!!"

In true democratic fashion, there will be neither a ticket pre-sale nor reserved seating.  It's all general admission, with tickets going on sale this Saturday morning at 10:00 ET.  Tickets are $75 a pop.  RFK Stadium seats 46,000 people for an NFL game, so figure capacity at well over 50,000 for the concert.

Sonic Highways, the HBO series, hits the halfway point this Friday night with the Austin, Texas installment.  The eighth and final episode airs December 5.  Sonic Highways, the album, drops Monday, November 10.
