Foo Fighters Reveal Stadium Concert Support Acts
The band have announced that they will be performing at Wrigley Field on August 29, 2015 and the show will be opened by Urge Overkill, followed by Naked Raygun (who's performance at the Cubby Bear was very show that Dave Grohl attended) and they will be followed by one of Chicago's biggest rock bands, Cheap Trick.
This past weekend, the HBO series Foo Fighters: Sonic Highways premiered and Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl also recently addressed how he sees the state of rock in the wake of KISS cofounder Gene Simmons' controversial remarks that rock is dead.
Grohl addressed the issue during an appearance on the Kevin & Bean morning show on Los Angeles radio stations KROQ. He said, "There's lots of rock being played and lots of rock being cared about and being made all over the world. I think popular culture works in cycles.
"Think about where music was just before Nirvana and Pearl Jam and Soundgarden, Alice In Chains and all those bands that blew up. We were kind of in a place where it almost seemed untouchable. There were a lot of bands that were really heavily stylized and heavily produced. It was really fun and it was fun to party to, but there are some times that you get hungry for something that's real."
He also added, "I want to see a dude sweating blood over his instrument he just smashed on the ground. Everybody has that in them sometimes, and I just think it sort of works in these cycles. For me it's my air, it's my food, it's my lifestyle. It's just what I do. My band is my family and the music we make is our voice. It's never going to disappear. When I step out at a Foo Fighters gig, either in an arena, club or stadium full of people singing 'Everlong' or 'My Hero' or 'Pretender,' rock and roll is alive and well in my house. I'm sorry that some people might feel starved for it."
