Foo Fighters had to reschedule their 2020 tour because of the coronavirus outbreak. The band moved some of the shows to the summer of 2021 including Rock in Rio Lisbon and I-Days among others.

The famous American rockers were earlier forced to reschedule their North American tour. Now, the same happened to their summer plans for the European tour. Foo Fighters were set to perform at numerous European festivals this summer including Rock in Rio Lisbon, Nova Rock, and I-Days. However, most of the festivals already canceled this year’s editions. This, of course, affects the artists as well. And therefore, Foo Fighters decided to reschedule their European tour and confirmed the first dates for the summer of 2021.

Besides the shows in Germany and Spain, Foo Fighters also announced their performance at Festival De Nîmes on 14 and 15 June and Rock in Rio Lisbon on 19 June 2021. They are confirmed for I-Days in Milan as well but the date is not specified yet.

You can see the official announcement below:

Rock in Rio Lisbon will be held on 19-20 and 26-27 June 2021. The Portuguese festival also gave us its first announcement for 2021 today revealing Foo Fighters, The National, and Liam Gallagher. They were all already confirmed for Rock in Rio Lisbon 2020 and will return to the festival next year. As for the Black Eyed Peas and Camila Cabello that were also arranged to perform this year it is still unknown if they will also return next year or not.
