It’s official, the mighty Foo Fighters have now confirmed that they are postponing their 25th-anniversary van tour in light of the battle knock out coronavirus.
Grohl and the gang had only announced plans only last month to celebrate their quarter-century milestone by touring the same stops as their first US tour back in 1995.
‘The Van Tour’, was a trek seeing the band “hitting a number of the same spots” that Dave Grohl, Nate Mendel, and Pat Smear started out in all those years ago in a Dodge van all those years ago.
Now, like tons of other gigs, they’ve announced that the shows will be put postponed until the coronavirus pandemic is under control.
Dave Grohl wrote the following on social media: “Hi, this is Dave. Remember me? The guy who wouldn’t even postpone a show when my goddamn leg was falling off?,” adding: “Well…playing a gig with a sock full of broken bones is one thing, but playing a show when YOUR health and safety is in jeopardy is another.
“We fuckin’ love you guys. So let’s do this right and rain check shit. The album is done, and it’s fuckin’ killer. The lights and stage are in the trucks, ready to go. The SECOND we are given the go ahead, we’ll come tear shit up like we always do. Promise.”
Grohl ended with: “Now go wash your hands. Dave.”
