The Foo Fighters are gearing up to perform the first full-capacity show at New York’s Madison Square Garden as, for the first time in 15 months, artists start to perform to packed crowds in New York again.
Attendees will have to show proof of COVID-19 vaccination in order to attend. Excitement for the show from the Foo Fighters is palpable: “We’ve been waiting for this day for over a year,” the band wrote in a tweet to announce the show. “Madison Square Garden is going to feel that HARD. New York, get ready for a long ass night of screaming our heads off together to 26 years of Foos.”
