As Foo Fighters Add More Fest Dates, Rumored New Drummer Josh Freese Exits the Offspring and Danny Elfman’s Band

Variety –

The Foo Fighters are looking at a long touring season that kicks off at the end of this month with a show at the Bank of New Hampshire Pavilion on May 24 and continues through a lengthy series of festival dates until November. Naturally, the group fronted by Dave Grohl has top billing for their festival stops, including their first at the Boston Calling Music Festival on May 26, and their newly announced gig at Chicago’s Riot Fest taking place on Sept. 15-17.

These shows will mark the first time the band performs a consistent lineup of dates since Taylor Hawkins’ death in March of last year. While fans await the band’s return to stages, the speculation surrounding prospective drummers is whittling down to very few viable options.
