With rock icon, Dave Grohl, as lead singer and guitarist, The Foo Fighters released their first album in 1995 making fans say "Nirvana who?"

Foo Fighters tour dates have been scheduled, and fans won't want to miss the chance to catch these rockers live in their area!
The band's self titled debut was an instant hit. However, it was their sophomore set The Colour and the Shape that established the post-grunge era of rock. The album features rock classics such as "Everlong" and "Hero," which to this day are mainstays on rock radio. The album was certified double-platinum and it remains their highest selling album to date. The Foo Fighters released several more critically and commercially acclaimed albums including There is Nothing Left to Lose (2001) and One by One (2002), which featured the hard rock hit "One By One." The Foo Fighters toured extensively for these albums, their concert schedule sending them to world renowned international venues including a sold out date at London's famed O2 arena.
In 2005, Foo Fighters tour dates were booked as co-headliners with Weezer for the aptly titled "Foozer Tour." They released their fifth album, In Your Honor, in 2006 and announced a series of acoustic Foo Fighters tour dates for their concert schedule that summer. The Foo Fighters tour dates in Los Angeles in 2006 were recorded for their first live CD, Skin and Bones, and featured a live DVD of the band's performance.
Five platinum records and a decade of touring later, the band keeps on recording new material and the Foo Fighters concert schedule remains as ambitious as when the bandmates were in their twenties. They released their sixth album, Echoes, Silence, Patience & Grace in 2007, which featured the hit rock anthem, "The Pretender."

The following year, the band released their Greatest Hits album which featured two new songs and the fifteen top ten rock hits they'd accumulated throughout the years.
