The Foo Fighters are taking a break from their break to play the White House.
Rolling Stone mag reports that the hit rockers are on tap to play on the South Lawn this weekend as part of the nation’s July 4th festivities. The gig comes in the midst of an extended hiatus for the group.
The Fighters were formed by drummer/guitarist/singer Dave Grohl in 1995 after Kurt Cobain’s suicide prompted the end of Nirvana, where Grohl had been enlisted as the drummer in 1990.
The Foo Fighters have evolved into one of the most successful bands of the past decade, recording a half-dozen albums and netting a few Grammy Awards in the process.
Grohl has reportedly been busy as a dad, but has obviously gotten itchy to get on stage again.
