"New York, get ready for a long-ass night of screaming our heads off together to 26 years of Foos".
Foo Fighters have confirmed they will be the first live act to perform at Madison Square Gardens since March 2020.
The rock legends will play to a fully vaccinated crowd on June 20th this year - the first full capacity live show in the iconic venue in over 450 days.
Announcing the show on Twitter today, the Foos wrote: “We’ve been waiting for this day for over a year. And @TheGarden’s going to feel that HARD. New York, get ready for a long-ass night of screaming our heads off together to 26 years of Foos.”

Foo Fighters recently confirmed a headline set at this year’s Lollapalooza Chicago, as well as at 2022’s Boston Calling festival.
The band’s touring comeback comes after the coronavirus pandemic derailed their extensive plans to celebrate their 25th anniversary in 2020.
In May 2021, it was announced that Foo Fighters will be inducted into the Rock And Roll Hall of Fame in October alongside Jay-Z, Todd Rundgren, Tina Turner, The Go-Go’s and Carole King.
“I don’t think any of us ever imagined that this would happen,” Grohl said of the news.
