Foo Fighters Add More US Arena Dates including Saint Paul stop

In the wake of the continuing success of the worldwide #1 album Wasting Light (Roswell/RCA) and the June 14 DVD and Blu-Ray (exclusive at Best Buy through July 12) release of the feature-length documentary Foo Fighters: Back And Forth (Spitfire/Roswell/RCA), Foo Fighters have added another leg of dates to their North American arena tour.

The October and November dates are the latest additions to a juggernaut of a worldwide campaign that currently has the band headlining European festivals, as well a sold out 130,000-capacity July 2-3 headline weekender at the UK's Milton Keynes Bowl. In addition, Foo Fighters were recently announced as a Lollapalooza 2011 headliner.

The ever-expanding tour rides the relentless momentum of Foo Fighters’ recently released seventh album Wasting Light, certified gold less than two months after debuting at #1 in a dozen countries. Wasting Light has also generated arguably the best critical notices of the band’s 16-year career.


The newly released Foo Fighters: Back And Forth documentary, directed by Oscar winner James Moll, has done likewise, with a just-out four-star ROLLING STONE review raving "a classic rockumentary arc... Dave Grohl has lived an extraordinarily cinematic life."

Grohl, Taylor Hawkins, Nate Mendel, Chris Shiflett and Pat Smear will be playing hits spanning the Foo Fighters' catalogue of multi-platinum arena anthems, including new staples such as the 13-week Modern Rock #1 "Rope" and "Walk," the band's latest single and subject of the brilliant Sam Jones-directed parody of the classic crime drama Falling Down. Already a viral sensation, the "Walk" clip has been viewed more than a million times since its June 2 premiere.

Special guests for the October dates include Cage The Elephant and Mariachi el Bronx.

General tickets are on sale for the September 14th St. Paul, MN show at the Xcel Center via Ticketmaster.
