Foo Fighters kicked off the first U.S. leg of the Concrete and Gold Tour October 12 with an intimate show by FF standards—the grand opening of The Anthem in Washington DC—a performance that USA Today noted "transformed the venue into a raucous rock cathedral.” In the days since, Foo Fighters have continued to storm through sold out arenas in Richmond VA, Greensboro SC, Cincinnati and more. The first Foo Fighters global trek since the 20th Anniversary trek that placed #5 in 2015’s top grossing world tours, the Concrete and Gold Tour has seen the Foos reaching new peaks of their estimable powers. "Foo Fighters keep going and going and going in epic Greensboro show,” wrote the Charlotte Observer, "If there’s one thing you can count on lately when you walk into a Foo Fighters concert, it’s that you probably won’t get home until tomorrow.” The Richmond Times-Dispatch reported, "Having played and sung all night with a seemingly endless store of energy, Grohl noted as midnight approached, 'I’m going to feel like I was run over by a truck tomorrow.’” And the Washington Post called the Anthem opener "a rock-and-roll clinic from Foo Fighters,” adding "when it was time to officially open the venue... the Anthem called in the only band with the local roots and international fame that could pull it off: Foo Fighters… That’s exactly what Grohl and friends did, treating the Anthem like a new leather jacket: turning something that glimmers with newness and making it feel as cozy as a childhood home.” For further updates on the 2017-2018 Concrete and Gold World Tour, continue to check www.foofighters.com
