Foo Fighters and The Smashing Pumpkins will also play together at other shows
They mix quite well and have a great time together. The two bands will also make their presence felt at Rockville in Daytona Beach, Florida this May.
The four day festival in the sun features so many amazing acts that are set to take the stage such as KISS, Smashing Pumpkins, Jane’s Addiction, Bush, Jerry Cantrell, Foo Fighters, Megadeth, Korn, Guns N’ Roses, Breaking Benjamin, Rise Against, and countless other very important bands that have shaped so many lives of those around us.
Smashing Pumpkins and Foo Fighters have both released albums which the fans have seemed to love. Smashing Pumpkins released some songs on their album ‘Cyr’. The reaction to the album was in the middle by fans, but Pumpkins may be gearing up for some new music. Foo Fighters are coming off of their album ‘Medicine At Midnight’ which has a rating of 94% enjoyed by fans which is huge for anyone.
We will have to see how things go down when both the legendary rock bands take the stage at the shows.
