Now that the Foo Fighters have announced a headlining tour, they gotta have a new drummer in mind. Right?

So far this year, the Foo Fighters have announced they will headline a number of festivals across the US. Now they’ve announced a proper headlining tour, their first since they had to bail on a 25th anniversary in 2020 because, well, you know, COVID. There are only six dates in addition to the festivals, but more will inevitably be announced.

And the drummer for this tour will be…we still don’t know. Here are my original theories and the one guess I got wrong. Today is April 12. The first show is just 43 days away. An announcement has to be coming soon.

Here are the announced dates so far. The Breeders will open a chunk of them.

  • It’s not like it’s a FUN thing to announce. I don’t think there will be a formal announcement and I am sure they are intentionally trying to keep it low key. We will see what happens when it happens, which will likely be at the first show.
