Fresh off of last week’s release of “Sonic Highways” — the band’s critically acclaimed eighth studio album on RCA Records — and their performance at the Veteran’s Day Concert for Valor in front of more than 800,000 on the Mall in Washington, D.C., Foo Fighters next month will embark on a worldwide tour. In the interim, “Sonic Highways,” the American TV documentary series about the history of American music airs Fridays on HBO. The show about New York City’s musical history airs December 5 – the same date when tickets go on sale to the general public for the band’s July 16 performance at Citi Field.
Foo Fighters will become the latest in a lineup of legendary artists to perform at the home of the Mets, including The Beatles, The Who, Police, Rolling Stones, Bruce Springsteen & The E Street Band, Billy Joel, Paul McCartney, Elton John, Eric Clapton and Dave Matthews Band.
Over the course of the band’s career, Foo Fighters have sold more than 11 million records in the United States and four of its albums have won Grammy Awards for Best Rock Album.
