Looks like the Foo Fighters are coming off their hiatus and they’re hinting at playing some US dates in 2017.
They launched a Foo Fighters Passport website, showing fans where they plan to be in the coming months, likely for concert performances.
First, they announced a date in Portugal, and they’ve updated their "passport" with stops in Finland, Spain and Poland. The site also has a map of Europe where red spots reveal where the band will be playing, which line up with the stamps in their "passport."
Yesterday, they posted a similar image of the United States to their social accounts that shows a red dot in California, which would seem to announce that they are at least going to do one date there.
Metallica drummer Lars Ulrich revealed in an interview just before Christmas that band may resurrect their Orion Music + More festival, but with a bit of tweaking so it’s more focused on the band and its history.
Ulrich says, “one thing that we talked about doing would maybe be to do something that was more full-on Metallica. Maybe it's just Metallica and some stuff, like museum stuff, and just maybe making it only Metallica for a whole weekend, but making it smaller. We haven't really dialed it yet, but we're looking at all the different options."
