Sonic Highways, the new concept album by the Foo Fighters has been out for awhile now, and it has received some decent reviews and some not-so-decent reviews. The main idea of the album was to record a different song in major music cities throughout the U.S. and see what kind of flair that it would bring to the tracks. To go along with it, they even filmed a short, documentary-style t.v. show on HBO. It was quite an ambitious release, to say the least. If you like the band, you should definitely give it a listen, and see what you make of the idea behind it.

The Foo Fighters are making the concept into a reality, now, as they have announced an absolutely massive tour to follow their 4th of July show in D.C.. The independence day show will feature some cool bands from each city the band recorded in, including: Joan Jett and the Blackhearts, LL Cool J with DJ Z-Trip, Trouble Funk, Trombone Shorty, Gary Clark Jr., and Heart. Not just that, but at a few shows will feature Royal Blood, and one will feature Mission of Burma.

Now, there’s one major problem with this tour. Did you spot it? Probably not, unless you live in Texas, because there is not a single show there, despite the fact that Austin was one of the cities featured on the new album. Not only that, but New Orleans also happened to be left out of the tour as well. It seems kind of strange to do a tour for an album who’s concept is being recorded in different cities across America, and then leaving out a few of those cities. Well, hopefully it was an error, and someone will end up booking a date or two for Austin and New Orleans...
