Foo Fighters to perform at Citi Field next summer

Oct. 4, 2023 By Ethan Marshall

The Foo Fighters are scheduled to perform at Citi Field July 17 and July 19 in 2024 as part of their “Everything or Nothing at All” tour.

These shows are part of the band’s upcoming stadium tour throughout the summer of 2024, celebrating the launch of their 11th studio album in 2023, “But Here We Are.” Citi Field will be the first stop of this tour.

This will mark the band’s first series of shows at Citi Field since 2015, when lead singer and guitarist Dave Grohl was limited to sitting on stage after suffering a broken leg during a previous performance. Joining the Foo Fighters for these upcoming shows will be the groups “Pretenders” and “Mammoth WVH” on July 17 and “The Hives” and “Amyl and The Sniffers” on July 19.

Originally formed in 1994 by former “Nirvana” drummer Dave Grohl, the Foo Fighters have established themselves as one of the greatest rock bands of all time. The group has won 15 Grammy Awards (five for best rock album) and was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2021.

In addition to Grohl, the band’s current lineup also includes Nate Mendel on the bass, Pat Smear on guitar, Chris Shiflett on guitar and backing vocals. Rami Jaffee on keyboards and Josh Freese on drums and percussions. Freese joined the band in 2023, replacing the late great longtime drummer Taylor Hawkins after his sudden death in 2022.

Tickets for the shows will go on sale Oct. 6 at 10 a.m. For pre-sales and more information, visit foofighters.com

Op-ed: Protecting Forest Hills Stadium

Jun. 14, 2024 By Thomas Grech

After more than a decade since its rebirth, it is unfathomable to consider Forest Hills without our venerable 101-year-old Forest Hills Stadium. The iconic venue is an asset to our community in so many ways – from creating jobs, to supporting local organizations, to providing invaluable links to our community’s rich history. Amazingly, a small band of unrealists who fail to understand that communities are constructed on the mutual grace and respect of our neighbors, want to shut down Forest Hills Stadium for good.

Op-ed: Congestion pricing would do much more harm than good for New Yorkers

Jun. 11, 2024 By Assemblymember David I. Weprin

Like many residents throughout the five boroughs and across the New York Metro Area, I was pleasantly surprised by Governor Kathy Hochul’s decision to “indefinitely pause” the implementation of Congestion Pricing. Rather than seeing this as a cynical calculation, as some have alleged, I see the Governor’s decision as a deeply pragmatic response to the crescendo of public concerns that I and many others have raised for years. As the countdown to the June 30 implementation date neared, everyday New Yorkers did what we do best: we spoke up for ourselves and said we won’t accept a bad deal! I applaud Governor Hochul for having the courage not just to listen to us but to take a tough stand against this misguided policy.
