We’ve waited here for this.
The Foo Fighters will mark the return of live music to Madison Square Garden with a show on June 20.
The “Everlong” band will play the first concert at the venue in more than 460 days after it shuttered due to the coronavirus pandemic.
The concert is only for vaccinated audiences, and will be at 100% capacity, the venue shared. “Guests will have to provide proof of full vaccination along with an appropriate ID matching the name on your documentation,” a statement on their site said. Guests under the age of 16 will have to prove a negative antigen test or full vaccination, and must be accompanied by a vaccinated adult.
Tickets go on sale this Friday at 10 a.m. eastern.
“We’ve been waiting for this day for over a year,” the band tweeted on Tuesday. “And @TheGarden is going to feel that HARD. New York, get ready for a long ass night of screaming our heads off together to 26 years of Foos.”
The show marks the first 100% capacity concert in a New York arena since March 2020. Many venues and Broadway have begun to reopen, but still at limited capacity, and many with similar vaccination requirements.
Presale for the Foo Fighters show began Tuesday on the band’s website. Already, high demand limited the number of people who could wait in the queue.
