Fans will have to wait a bit longer to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the Foo Fighters, The Dave Grohl-led band announced it was cancelling the Van Tour 2020 on Friday, having initially tried to postpone the dates to fall due to the coronavirus pandemic.
“Playing a gig with a sock full of broken bones is one thing, but playing a show when YOUR health and safety is in jeopardy is another,” Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl said in a statement when the tour was initially postponed. “We f***ing love you guys. So let’s do this right and rain check sh*t. The SECOND we are given the go ahead, we’ll come tear sh*t up like we always do. Promise. Now go wash your hands.”
Van Tour 2020 was initially designed to hit the same cities from the band’s initial tour in 1995. As the pandemic began to unfold, dates were pushed to October and December, but now even those dates have fallen victim to the continued growth of COVID-19 cases in the United States.
