If you missed the Foo Fighters when they played a semi-secret show at the 9:30 Club in May, or when they played a last-minute show at the Black Cat last month, you're in luck: Dave Grohl and Co. will continue their D.C. homecoming series with a 20th anniversary extravaganza at RFK Stadium on the Fourth of July.
That's right, 2015 makes 20 years since this album filled your CD player on the school bus:
Joining the Foo Fighters on the sonically diverse bill: D.C. legends Trouble Funk, plus Buddy Guy, Gary Clark Jr., Heart, Joan Jett, LL Cool J and Trombone Shorty. Given that it takes place on Independence Day, expect fireworks, barbecue and even a motorcycle rally.
It's also the first major concert to take place inside RFK Stadium in recent memory. The 2004 HFStival -- surely the only place one could see Jay-Z and Papa Roach share the same stage -- was held there on May 22, 2004, less than a year before the return of Major League Baseball, which took the stadium all but out-of-play for concert hosting. All "RFK Stadium" shows since have taken place on the grounds outside the stadium.
Tickets ($75) go on sale Saturday at 10 a.m. through Ticketmaster. Seating is general admission.
In the meantime, Grohl is among the performers scheduled to play the Veterans Day Concert for Valor on the National Mall next week. And if you haven't seen the D.C. episode of Grohl's "Sonic Highways" series on HBO, it's well worth it for fans who want to learn more about D.C.'s musical legacy.
