Earlier this month, Foo Fighters announced their first full tour dates of 2021, with a run of US gigs booked for July and August.

The band will play six shows across the Midwest, Oklahoma and New Mexico, and have promised “many more to come”.

Meanwhile, a group of anti-vaxxers, led by US actor Ricky Schroder, turned up at Foo Fighters‘ first proper gig in over a year on Tuesday (June 15) to protest against the band’s support of coronavirus vaccinations.

Taking place at The Canyon in California’s Agoura Hills, the band’s requirement that attendees showed proof of vaccination before entry into the intimate show sparked anger among the anti-vax crowd.
