Foo Fighters Extend North American Tour, Add Canadian Dates

Foo Fighters Extend North American Tour, Add Canadian Dates
Last month, long-running alt-rockers the Foo Fighters announced a whole whack of tour dates that would find them criss-crossing North America and Europe. This included stops in Toronto and Montreal. If you were worried that Dave Grohl and co. weren't going to give the West Coast some lovin', you can put your fears to rest. The Foos have just let loose a batch of western dates.

The band will pull into BC first, playing Vancouver's Rogers Arena on October 25, and will make their way over to Alberta for shows in Calgary and Edmonton. There are also more U.S. shows slated for the fall run.

While the earlier Canuck gigs will have support from CanCon punkers Fucked Up and the Doughboys, Cage the Elephant and Mariachi el Bronx will open for the Foos during the October dates. You can check out the complete schedule below.
