Foo Fighters recently played a private corporate gig in Las Vegas, and just last month David Lee Roth hinted at Foo Fighters having a role in the rumored Van Halen original lineup 2019 reunion tour.
Roth recently gave his first interview in three years with Vulture, and he hinted at Van Halen playing live next summer, with a possible festival or shows with Foo Fighters, Guns N’ Roses, Metallica, Jason Aldean, Church, and Chris Stapleton. He also mentioned Yankee Stadium in New York.
“When we come back through town in the summertime and do the original thing, maybe somewhere sportin’, maybe with somebody famous,” Roth says, “I’ll make sure we get you all tickets so you can see what we do for gainful employment. My mom still wonders.”
“We don’t think about the price. Because, you know, next time my rock band will be playing the same place that the Yankees play. Okay?”
He later said, “Well, I don’t know how far this privacy actually goes. But the band is solvent. And I can say that I contacted colleagues about being part of the show — Metallica, Guns N’ Roses, Jason Aldean, the Foo Fighters, Church, and Stapleton. And they all said that, if everything happens, they would certainly be involved.”
Now, at Foo Fighters’ first 2019 show, they played their cover of “Jump” with an “Imagine” musical arrangement. David Lee Roth played with Foo Fighters at their 2015 Dave Grohl birthday show.
