Foo Fighters announce July 4 blowout with Joan Jett, LL Cool J

Posted on

The Foo Fighters
Ringo Starr

As well as being world-class rock stars, the Foo Fighters are also world-class music fans possessed of exceptionally good taste. Their unabashed geekiness is central to their Sonic Highways series currently airing on HBO, and also to the shindig they’re putting on in Washington, D.C. on July 4.

The Foos will celebrate their 20th anniversary by headlining a concert at RFK Stadium with Buddy Guy, Gary Clark Jr., Heart, Joan Jett, LL Cool J, Trombone Shorty, and legendary standard bearers of the D.C. go-go scene Trouble Funk filling out the bill, with a motorcycle rally and fireworks to boot. Tickets are on sale now.
