FOO FIGHTERS AND WEEZER JOIN FORCES

The bands are expected to hit the road in September…

FOO FIGHTERS and WEEZER are set to head out together on a US tour this autumn.

Speaking on ’The Howard Stern Show’ yesterday, Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl said that the trek is expected to get underway in September, although final details may not be finalised until next week.

Grohl told Billboard: “I can’t wait until I’m stuck on a bus, watching ‘Office Space’ for the millionth time and eating a pizza in Utah.”

He added: “That’s my perfect day.”

Foo Fighters will then kick off a string of European festival dates on July 1 at Switzerland’s Openair.

Weezer are currently in the middle of a European tour, and will start a summer run on July 2 in Las Vegas as part of the city’s 100th birthday celebrations.
