Foo Fighters to perform on Saturday Night Live

The Foo Fighters will perform as the musical guests on the November 7 episode of NBC-TV’s Saturday Night Live.

The band will make their eighth appearance on the program alongside host Dave Chappelle.

“See you this weekend Chappelle!,” shared the group on social media.

The Foo Fighters are celebrating the 25th anniversary of their self-titled debut album, which saw founder Dave Grohl write and perform all of the material on the project.

Due to the pandemic, the band were forced to cancel a scheduled 25th anniversary Van Tour of North America that was set to see them perform in the round while revisiting stops along their 1995 trek.

In February, Grohl shared an update on the status of a follow-up to 2017’s “Concrete And Gold.”

“We just finished making a record,” the rocker revealed during an appearance on The Bill Simmons Podcast. “Some of those songs, the best ones happen in 45 minutes. Then there's other songs — there's a riff on the new record I've been working on for 25 years. The first time I demoed it was in my basement in Seattle.”
