Foo Fighters heading back to Charlotte

Dave Grohl's hit-making rock n' roll machine returns to Charlotte for the first time in four years. The band announced today that it will play Time Warner Cable Arena Tuesday, November 8. Pre-sales start Wednesday, July 13 at 10 a.m. General ticket sales start Friday, July 15 via

The third leg of its upcoming US tour begins at Atlanta's Gwinnett Center on November 7. Social Distortion and the Joy Formidable will open the November run. The tour follows up the band's successful seventh album, "Wasting Ligh,t" and new documentary "Back and Forth."

The Foo Fighters last graced a Charlotte stage in October 2007. I still hear local music fans mention it as one of the best concerts in recent memory. If you want a preview of the fall tour Foo Fighters is streaming its performance at the Legendary Roundhouse in London as part of the iTunes festival live today at 4 p.m. EST. (9 p.m. UK time). You can log on to iTunes watch or download the free iTunes App here.


  1. The album is Wasting Light. Idiot.

  2. In reply to Anonymous 8:35 AM. Of course it is. The new doc is "Back and Forth." That's what I get for hurrying.

  3. Definately going, but to see SOCIAL DISTORTION!!!! They are amazing live and will hopefully earn some new fans on these dates.
