With their excellent, return-to-form album Wasting Light just out, Foo Fighters have mapped short accompanying spring and fall tours. They kick off a 7-date jaunt tomorrow in Tulsa, OK, (this leg wraps on May 27 at Washington's Sasquatch Festival), visit Lollapalooza in August, and return for a 9-date run of arenas beginning September 13 in St. Paul, MN. Rise Against and Mariachi el Bronx have been tapped as openers for the fall shows, which end Sept. 26 in New Jersey. Check out dates below.

Expect the Foo Fighters shows to be packed with a mixture of new tunes and classics. At a recent gig in Cologne, Germany, the band delivered a 98-minute set that included fan favorites like "Everlong," "Times Like These," and "Learn to Fly," along with new cut "White Limo." Guitarist Pat Smear, who has re-joined the band for the album, will also be heading our for the tour.
