It’s times like these we all learn to love again. And it’s times like these we learn to love Dave Grohl even more than we already do. While we’re certainly disappointed the Foo Fighters 2020 summer Van Tour has been postponed until later dates, it is in everyone’s best interest to stay away from large gatherings and hunker down for a little while. How Everlong.
Message To Fans
The singer/songwriter issued a heartwarming message for all fans hoping to be in attendance this summer:
Hi, this is Dave. Remember me? The guy who wouldn’t even postpone a show when my goddamn leg was falling off?
Well… playing a gig with a sock full of broken bones is one thing, but playing a show when YOUR health and safety is in jeopardy is another…
We fuckin’ love you guys. So let’s do this right and rain check shit. The album is done, and it’s fuckin’ killer. The lights and stage are in the trucks, ready to go. The SECOND we are given the go ahead, we’ll come tear shit up like we always do. Promise.
Now go wash your hands.
Hard to ignore Dave’s disappointment. We’re all feeling the same complicated mixture of feelings. Not many could have expected a Monkey Wrench like this. Many were looking forward to their summer plans, myself included, but public health and safety takes priority.
It’s clear Dave wishes the best for us and we love him for that. Times are tough, people are nervous and scared. The Foo Fighters have given us something to look forward to later this year. Thank you, guys.
We can Learn to Fly in preparation for a winter takeoff.

These Days you can’t be too careful. Though a postponed Foo Fighters tour might sting a bit, it is currently in everyone’s best interest. As Dave said, wash your hands, and keep to social distancing. If you play your Foo Fighters vinyls loud enough you could have a block party without having to leave your house. Tear shit up in the safety of your own home.
And come December? Let’s fucking go. We’re all ready for it.
See you guys then.
