Foo Fighters postpone remainder of spring Van Tour dates

The Foo Fighters have postponed the remainder of dates on their upcoming 25th anniversary Van Tour of North America due to the coronavirus pandemic.

The six-week, 11-show series was set to see the Foo Fighters revisiting stops along their 1995 trek … in the round.

After recently moving the planned April shows to December, the band have confirmed rescheduled October dates for the May lineup, which included stops in Green Bay, Grand Rapids, Cincinnati, Detroit, Cleveland and Hamilton, ON.

Tickets for the original shows will be honored for the fall appearances.

Dave Grohl performed an acoustic version of the group's 1997 classic, “My Hero”, during the iHeart Living Room Concert For America broadcast on Fox-TV on March 29.

Grohl dedicated his performance to “all the people out there on the frontlines that are doing their best to get us through all of this” during the special hosted by Elton John and featuring in-home performances by Alicia Keys, Billie Joe Armstrong of Green Day, Billie Elish, Mariah Carey and others.

The broadcast event encouraged viewer donations to help a pair of charities during the health crisis, including Feeding America and the First Responders Children’s Foundation.
