Dave Grohl hinted to fans at the Foo Fighters’ gig at the Cubby Bear in Chicago last week that the band might come back to play at Wrigley Field next year. It turns out, Grohl wasn’t thinking wishfully. Foo Fighters will come to Wrigley next August in support of their latest album Sonic Highways. Foo Fighters joins a long and distinguished list of artists to play in the ivy including Pearl Jam, Bruce Springsteen, and the Police. The Wrigley Field announcement is just another piece of evidence in the building case that 2015 is going to belong to Grohl and his merry band.
Grohl premiered his 8-part HBO documentary series last Sunday, which is followed the band as they recorded Sonic Highways. The premiere episode sent the band to Cubby Bear, home of the first punk show Grohl ever saw. Foo Fighters may forever be Grohl’s second famous band. It’s hard to follow up a job as Nirvana’s drummer. However, the maturation of Grohl – and Foo Fighters – since they formed in 1994 has been remarkable, and inspirational.
