Dave Grohl and company have been ushering in the return of live music from coast to coast. In May, they closed out SoFi Stadium’s Vax Live event, also in Inglewood. Then to celebrate the reopening of California, the band graced The Canyon, a 1,270-capacity in Agoura Hills, Calif., for a lucky audience of 600 vaccinated fans. Over in New York, the Foo Fighters kicked off Madison Square Garden’s 2021 season with a three-hour set that featured Dave Chapelle covering Radiohead’s “Creep” and homages to the Bee Gees and Freddie Mercury with performances of “You Should Be Dancing” and “Somebody to Love.” With the Golden State officially open and the entertainment capital full of artists buzzing to return to the stage, there is no doubt the Foo Fighters’ Forum opener will be an arena-rock extravaganza full of surprises.
Tickets for the Forum show go on sale to the public on June 25 at 10 a.m. PT on Ticketmaster. The 17,500-capacity venue will follow state and county public health guidelines to keep audiences safe during the on-going pandemic and noted it may implement additional policies for particular shows. When buying tickets, guests must confirm they will be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 by the time of the event or they will have had a pre-entry negative COVID-19 test, which must be done within 72 hours of entry. The venue is also cashless.
The Forum’s last concert took place on March 12, 2020.
