Foo Fighters Cancel 25th Anniversary ‘Van’ Tour, Hear Dave Grohl Guest On Inara George Track


Originally the Foo Fighters had planned to tour in support of their 25th anniversary this year, performing two legs of shows in cities they played amid their early touring. While the COVID-19 pandemic eventually saw them reschedule both legs of that trek to later this year, the ongoing limitations and health concerns brought on by it have seen them ultimately scrap the tour entirely. They said in a statement issued earlier today, August 07th:

Foo Fighters have cancelled the Van Tour 2020. All shows listed below will be automatically refunded. For further information, please visit your point of purchase. We look forward to seeing you all as soon as it is safe for everyone to do so.

In other news, Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl guests on a new version of “Sex In Cars” from The Bird And The Bee‘s Inara George. Proceeds from that track will benefit Sweet Relief‘s COVID-19 Fund. Grohl commented:

“Having been such a massive fan of Inara for years, it’s always such an incredible honor to work with her, whether on Foo Fighters music or for The Bird And The Bee. Her voice is timeless, so pure and real. So I jumped at the chance to duet with her on this song. It was a dream come true! And for a great cause: Musicians coming together to support each other in difficult times, working to keep the music alive.”

George added:

“I always knew I wanted this version of ‘Sex In Cars‘ with Dave to benefit some amazing non-profit. As the pandemic hit and it became very clear that live music would not resume for many, many months, I immediately thought of Sweet Relief, not only because they help so many musicians, but also because they help everyone in the music industry.”
