Foo Fighters Extend 2011 Tour

Hot on the heels of their critically applauded new LP ‘Wasting Light,’ Foo Fighters have confirmed additional tour dates for 2011.

Following their run with Motörhead and Biffy Clyro, the garage rock quintet are slated to hit a few notable festivals in the US and Europe, including Sasquatch! Music Festival, Greenfield Festival, Isle of Wight Festival, Pinkpop, IdRHO Festival, Southside Festival, Hurricane Festival, Optimus! Alive Festival, Oxegen, and T in the Park. Then, in early August, the band will be making a stop at Lollapalooza in Chicago, IL before heading to Pukkelpop, Frequency Festival, Highfield Festival, Chiemsee Festival, Rock En Seine, and more. The excursion is set to end with a short nine-date run accompanied by Rise Against and Mariachi El Bronx in the States.

Pre-sales for the newly announced September dates start May 18. General on sales begin May 20 with the exception of St. Paul and Columbus which go on sale to the public June 4.
