Foo Fighters prepare to announce North American tour

The Foo Fighters are preparing to announce dates for a 2015 North American tour in support of their newly-released album, “Sonic Highways.”

The band will reveal the tour news on Tuesday, November 18.

The Foo Fighters currently have two 2015 US shows on the schedule, including Washington’s RFK Stadium on July 4 and Chicago’s Wrigley Field on August 29.

In the meantime, the band are scheduled to perform two shows in South Africa next month before launching a South American run in January; they’ll hit Australia and New Zealand in February/March, followed by a series of UK stadium shows and a few European dates in May/June.

“Sonic Highways” is on track for Top 5 US debut.

Billboard recently reported the project could sell over 190,000 copies in its first week to open at No. 2 on the US Billboard 200 album chart behind Taylor Swift’s “1989”, which is expected to maintain it’s current No. 1 status for a third consecutive week.

The new Billboard 200's top 10 will be revealed on Wednesday, November 19.

Produced by Butch Vig, “Sonic Highways” was recorded in 8 American cities – Austin, Chicago, Los Angeles, Nashville, New Orleans, New York, Seattle and Washington, D.C.
