Coronavirus Shelved Foo Fighters 25th Anniversary Plans
Dave Grohl revealed that due to coronavirus pandemic he was forced to cancel the Foo Fighters and their huge 25th anniversary plans, including a new album, a documentary, an unannounced project, a tour, and a new music video he revealed in a new entertainment weekly interview.
Grohl said he’s been coping with the changes by spending time with his family and sharing stories with his fans on social media revealing:
“I try not to think about it too much, because we put about a year’s worth of work into this year — meaning we started preparing multiple projects all to release now. There was a documentary, there was another secret project that we were so excited about, there was a tour, there’s a new album, we made a video… I mean, all of these things are just waiting to be released, and I was really looking forward to all of them to come out together for the anniversary.
Now that being said, all of that went out the window when the pandemic became what it is now. I forgot about the band, I forgot about the album, I forgot about the documentary and the video and I focused on my family — just as I’m sure everybody else did.
Right now I’m in such a daddy-domestic headspace that even just calling to do an interview is strange, because what is there to talk about really? But we do have this arsenal of material ready to f—in’ dam-burst all over the world, and it’s just a matter of figuring out when the world is ready because I think that’s a little more important than the Foo Fighters. [Laughs]”
