This Houston show comes as Dave Grohl and the Foo Fighters announced two new dates on September 12: Houston and a show in Santa Barbara, California later this month.
Fresh off a summer album drop — the band released the latest But Here We Are, arrived on June 2, peaking at No. 8 on the Billboard 200, and topping Billboard’s Rock and Alternative Albums charts.
But Here We Are is bittersweet as it marks the first album without beloved drummer Taylor Hawkins, who died in 2022. (Grohl recorded all the drum tracks on the album.) The band made drummer Josh Freese an official fulltimer on May 21. The band is set to play the Austin City Limits festival on October 14.
