Learn To Fly Again: Foo Fighters to resume live shows with July 4 blowout in Washington, DC

 

The Foo Fighters are expected to return to the stage this weekend, just in time for their 41-date North American summer tour. Earlier this month, Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl broke his leg during a gig in Sweden, leading to a series of cancelled shows in Europe, including a headlining appearance this past weekend at Glastonbury Festival in the United Kingdom.

But with the stateside run set to start July 4 with a huge 20th anniversary blowout at RFK Stadium in Washington, DC, the Foo Fighters don’t look like they’ll be canceling any North American dates. That’s especially good news for us here in Boston — the July 18 and 19 shows at Fenway Park don’t appear to be in jeopardy any longer.

“Can’t f***ing wait for the 4th!!!” Foo Fighters tweeted out yesterday as reinforcements of the North American dates came through from the band’s publicists. “See you at home, DC.”

 
 

There are seven Foo Fighters shows scheduled between the DC opener and the Boston dates. The July 18 Fenway Park show features a pair of hometown legacy acts, the Mighty Mighty Bosstones and Mission of Burma, while the next night stars Boston celtic-punk royalty Dropkick Murphys and rising UK rock duo Royal Blood.

It also remains to be seen what kind of Grohl we’ll be getting — Will he be mobile? Will he be seated during the entire show? Was he given a bionic leg? But even a scaled-down Foo Fighters is better than no Foo Fighters at all.

Stay tuned — and check the Foos’ full run of shows after the tweet jump.
