FOO FIGHTERS To Rock Alaska For The First Time

This post was originally published on this site

Not content to bring live rock n roll marathons back to the Lower 48, FOO FIGHTERS have confirmed a three-show expedition to Alaska.

The band will play its first ever shows in the Last Frontier August 17 and 19 at the Dena’ina Center in Anchorage, and August 21 at the Carlson Center in Fairbanks.

According to the Anchorage Daily News, tickets will be $129.50 plus service fees and go live at noon Wednesday, July 14.

For anyone who’s been living under a glacier, FOO FIGHTERS‘ Alaskan dates are the latest addition to a U.S. itinerary that kicked off last month with the now legendary sold-out, full-capacity Madison Square Garden show that welcomed live music back to New York — a show Rolling Stone described as “three loud, sweaty, emotional, and supremely fun hours.”

FOO FIGHTERS‘ latest album, “Medicine At Midnight”, landed at No. 1 on Billboard‘s Top Album Sales chart with first-week sales of 64,000 copies in the U.S.

FOO FIGHTERS previously topped the chart with 2017’s “Concrete And Gold” and 2011’s “Wasting Light”.

23,000 of “Medicine At Midnight”‘s first-week sales came from vinyl LP sales, with CDs and digital albums registering 20,000 each.

“Medicine At Midnight” came out on February 5 via Roswell Records/RCA Records. The LP is a nine-song, 37-minute effort which was produced by the FOO FIGHTERS and Greg Kurstin.

The first single from the disc, “Shame Shame”, was released in November. An accompanying music video for the song was directed by Paola Kudacki and co-stars FOO FIGHTERS frontman Dave Grohl and Sofia Boutella. “Shame Shame” renders in stunning black and white an interpretation of a recurring dream that’s haunted Grohl since his childhood days.
