The Foo Fighters will be going to Africa this year! South Africa that is. I don't know a TON about South Africa other than I can trace some family back there in the 1800's and that's where the bad guys from Lethal Weapon 2 were from. OH, and my parents just went there on vacation. They brough me back some stuff.
Have some stuff from South Africa wich was all made in China
But after dropping a couple hints over the weekend, the Foo's have officially announced plans to play two shows -- one in Cape Town on December 10th and another in Johannesburg on December 13th. The stadium gigs will also feature the Kaiser Chiefs and BLK JKS as well. But Dave Grohl says they haven't forgotten about their Stateside fans. They've also confirmed an appearance at the Life Is Beautiful Festival, which takes place October 24th through the 26th in Las Vegas.
I want to hear "Big Me" on a Vevuzela
The Foo Fighters are set to release a new album in November and will also be the subject of a new HBO docuseries. That should be cool. I'm guessing a US Tour will follow. I hope so anyway
Every so often you find a story that totally blows your mind. Today I found the Instagram belonging to Medal Of Honor recipient, Kyle Carpenter. Which shows meeting Dave Grohl at the White House.
There’s a staggering amount of awesome going on here. Think about it, A guy wins gets the MEDAL OF HONOR for jumping on a grenade in Afghanistan. The youngest guy to ever get said medal by the way, and he lost an eye doing it. Then, while at the White House he just happens to run into Dave Grohl. I like to think of myself as being a badass, but there are several parts about that story where I would literally piss my pants.
Sorry Mr President.
Sure, I get to meet rockstars all the time, and I met Dave Grohl during the Olympics. But in the White House? I’d be all “Oh sure Barack, I’ll be with you in a sec”. I'm also trying to make heads or tails of why Dave Grohl is just wandering around The West Wing. Is that how it works? When you're a world famous rockstar you can just hang out wherever you want? I should really apply myself. Now that I think about it, the most ambitious thing I'VE today was use spellcheck to make sure I was spelling ambitious right for this blog.
Then I peed my pants again.
Anyway, Dave and his Foo Fighters are leading the lineup at the Voodoo Music and Arts Experience. Headlining this year's edition of the New Orleans event along with OutKast, Skrillex, and Arctic Monkeys. The full Voodoo lineup is available at WorshipTheMusic.com, where fans can also get tickets starting June 27th.
...with or without coffee.
