To what should come as no surprise to anyone, Foo Fighters have canceled their Van Tour that was supposed to Dave Grohl and company on the same route as their first tour from 1995. And yes, it’s canceled due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.
Foo Fighters were slated to launch the tour in April in Phoenix and continue across the country. That tour was originally pushed to October after the pandemic shut things down in March, but today’s decision is the inevitability at a time when cases continue to rise.

The band will likely focus on their new album, something that Grohl himself said was just about done in an interview earlier this year, and he compared it to David Bowie’s Let’s Dance. On July 4, Foo Fighters celebrated the 25th anniversary of the release of their self-titled debut album. While in quarantine, Grohl has shared a bunch of stories from his past (including about Prince, Bowie, Pantera, and his father) on his new Instagram account.
