Boston Calling marks Foo Fighters’ first major performance announcement after the death of drummer Taylor Hawkins last March in Bogota, Colombia. The Dave Grohl-led band teased their comeback on New Year’s Eve, revealing that they would “soon” return in an end-of-year note.
“Without Taylor, we never would have become the band that we were – and without Taylor, we know that we’re going to be a different band going forward,” the Foos wrote in their statement on Twitter, later adding, “We know that when we see you again – and we will soon – he’ll be there in spirit with all of us every night.”
Tickets will go on sale this Thursday, January 12, at 10 a.m. ET. Take a look at the full lineup above.
