Foo Fighters have reached their 20th year as a band, and next year will mark the 20th anniversary of their self-titled debut album. And they’re throwing a hell of a party next year to make sure the birthday celebration is a memorable on. On July 4, 2015, Foo Fighters are throwing a huge Independence Day concert at RFK Stadium in Washington, D.C. Foo Fighters will headline the show, of course, but there’s a long list of impressive guests performing, each of whom represents the eight cities where the band recorded their new album, Sonic Highways. Artists on the lineup include blues legend Buddy Guy (Chicago), Heart (Seattle), Gary Clark Jr. (Austin), LL Cool J featuring DJ Z Trip (New York City), Joan Jett (Los Angeles), go-go legends Trouble Funk (Washington, D.C.), and Trombone Shorty (New Orleans).
There will be other Independence Day events happening at the concert, including a motorcycle rally, barbecue and fireworks. It’ll be an all American rock ‘n’ roll bash if there ever was one. Tickets for the event will go on sale on Nov. 10 at 10 a.m. eastern (so get up early if you’re planning to fly out from the west coast). Check out the awesome flyer for the event below. Foo Fighters’ Sonic Highways is out next week.
