Foo Fighters take off to the Great White North
Fresh off a sold-out UK outing, the Foo Fighters are resting up for their 2008 North American tour, which now includes a run through Canada.
The Grammy-winning rockers, who previously announced a half-dozen shows in the southern and eastern US in the new year, recently added a gig in Rosemont, IL, and eight dates across several Canadian provinces. The trek is scheduled to kick off Jan. 23 in Dallas and currently stretches through March 30. Details are listed below.
The US concerts are currently on sale, with the exception of the Rosemont date, which goes up Dec. 1. The Canadian shows will go on sale to the general public beginning this Friday (11/23), and fans who register for the Foo Fighters’ email list via the band’s website can access pre-sale tickets beginning tomorrow (11/21).
The band is supporting its sixth studio effort, “Echoes, Silence, Patience & Grace,” which snagged the No. 3 spot on The Billboard 200 when it dropped in September. Lead single “The Pretender” continues to top the modern rock chart after 15 weeks. That song and the Foo Fighters’ latest single, “Long Road to Ruin,” are streaming at the group’s MySpace page.
The album marks the first time the Foos have worked with producer Gil Norton since 1997’s double-platinum seller “The Colour and the Shape,” which was recently remastered and reissued as a 10th anniversary deluxe edition with six bonus tracks.
“Echoes” follows the Foo Fighters’ 2005 double-album, “In Your Honor,” which comprises a disc of aggressive hard rock and one of more delicate acoustic tracks. That platinum-selling set spawned the No. 1 mainstream- and modern-rock hit “Best of You” and led to the band’s biggest-selling tour to date, according to a press release.
