Foo Fighters will perform at Madison Square Garden in New York on June 20th, with a rumored second show on June 21st, and all fans are required to be fully vaccinated. The Strokes will play Irving Plaza on June 12th.
“We’ve been waiting for this day for over a year, and Madison Square Garden is going to feel that hard,” bandleader Dave Grohl said in a press statement. Tickets are set to go on sale on Thurs., June 11, at 10 a.m. ET, via Ticketmaster.
And at Irving Plaza, a more intimate venue, the fashionable New York City band the Strokes will perform on Sat., June 12, in a concert meant to raise funds for the mayoral campaign of Maya Wiley. “The more I know her, the more I know that she is absolutely the best choice to be NYC’s next mayor,” Strokes vocalist Julian Casablancas said in a press statement about the event.
“This concert — the first full-capacity show in over a year — is proof that New York City is on the road to recovery,” Wiley said in the same statement, adding, “I’m thrilled to be kicking off this important and joyful milestone for our city.” The concert takes place 10 days ahead of New York City’s primary election.
