Quick Hits: Foo Fighters, Radiohead, Wilco
September 3, 2014


Foo Fighters
Foo Fighters will keep their promise to play a crowd-sourced concert on Dave Grohl's home turf of Richmond, VA, as the Rockers announced today they will play The National on September 17. Earlier this year, Foo fans bought up tickets to a hypothetical show in Virginia, hoping to convince the band to play in Grohl's home state. The venue only holds 1,500, according to Consequence Of Sound. The new Foo Fighters album, Sonic Highways, is due out November 10.

Radiohead drummer Phil Selway says the Brit band plans to reconvene in the coming weeks to start work on new material. Selway told the NME that Radiohead will begin working towards a new album this fall, while in another interview with the BBC, he said, "We just took 18 months away from [the band]. When we get back together, well be bringing new experiences. That immediately brings a whole new energy and drive to it."

Wilco will celebrate their 20th anniversary as a band this year, with a new rarities box-set and their first best-of collection on the way this fall. The band announced a handful of October tour dates, with more expected to be added. Meanwhile, Wilco main man Jeff Tweedy will release his side project album from Tweedy (with his son Spencer on drums) on September 23, with a tour kicking off September 19 in Athens, GA.
