After selling out their Canyon Club in Agoura Hills, Los Angeles and Madison Square Garden in New York concerts, the Foo Fighters are doing their part to resurrect rock & roll back to “live” once again, this time on their Los Angeles home turf at The Forum. On July 17, the band will play the first full capacity concert at the iconic Forum in more than a year. Tickets will be on sale to the public as of June 25 at 10am PT. When purchasing tickets, guests must confirm (for themselves and guests) that they will be fully vaccinated, or will have received a negative COVID-19 test within 72 hours of the event. Guests must also self-attest when entering the venue that they are either fully vaccinated or have received a negative COVID-19 test within 72 hours of entrance. This very well may mean that guests may not have to provide physical proof of their vaccination or negative Covid-19 test, and will be admitted to the concert based on the honor system. Since this is a large indoor event, the LA County Health Department recommends that guests wear a face mask.
“As we prepare to reopen the Forum to fans, the health and safety of our guests, artists and staff is our top priority,” said Geni Lincoln, General Manager and Senior Vice President of Live Events at the Forum. “We’re excited to welcome back fans for live music, and couldn’t be more thrilled to kick off our return with members of our Forum family, Foo Fighters!” Foo Fighters released their tenth full-length album, Medicine At Midnight in February 2020. Their single “Shame Shame” debuted on SNL and was later performed on The Late Show With Stephen Colbert. The band are set to be inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame this October, alongside fellow performers Jay-Z, The Go-Go’s, Carole King, Todd Rundgren and Tina Turner. Frontman Dave Grohl responded to the news last month, saying “I don’t think any of us ever imagined this would happen.” Grohl has been active in Covid-19 relief fundraising efforts as well, participating in charitable fundraisers for Live Nation and more.
