Foo Fighters have now canceled their DC Jam festival, which was scheduled to take place on July 4th, 2020 in Landover, Maryland. No acts had been confirmed yet for the event, which would have celebrated the 25th anniversary of the first Foos album.
The Foos have also postponed a summer European run until 2021, although they are still currently scheduled to head out on their “Van Tour” this fall in the U.S. That trek has been moved already from this spring and is now slated to start October 1st on Hamilton, Ontario.
This past weekend saw the band share their June 17th, 2006 live set from a festival at Hyde Park in London, England. The band has used that video to raise over $9600 so far for MusiCares.
Band members Dave Grohl and Taylor Hawkins participated last week in BBC Radio One's online group performance of the Foo Fighters hit “Times Like These.” They were joined by Royal Blood, Coldplay singer Chris Martin, Dua Lipa, Yungblud, Bastille and others performing the 2002 tune from their homes.
