Foo Fighters due at Pepsi Center on October 9

Wow! We'd be lying if we said we saw this coming. While we were sleeping, evidently, the Foo Fighters have officially been elevated to bona fide arena rock status, presumably owing to the success of the new album, Wasting Light.

Now granted, the new record is pretty damned good -- especially when you're screaming down the highway with the windows down and that mother cranked, like we did this past Saturday -- we hardly figured it would raise the Foos status that much. Well, shows what we know. The Foos are due at the Pepsi Center on October 9 with Cage the Elephant and Mariachi El Bronx. There's a special pre-sale on Wednesday before tixs officially go on sale this Friday.

I am going to see the Foo Fighters tomorrow at the Pepsi Center and I don't really care what their "status" is.  See, that's what makes us Foo Fighter fans Dave Herrera.

Incredible music journalism.  Foo Fighters have been playing arenas for a long time now, and also headlining major headlining festivals.  Also, I think you mean "Bona fide".

Yeah, I don't know that this item was actually intended to be an example of hard-hitting, earth shattering "journalism." More like a heads-up that the date had been announced. Just the same, point taken. What's more, looks like the Foos played Pepsi Center before even in '05. So then hooray for them for being able to sustain that level of popularity for so long. That's an impressive feat these days.

i don't know what headliner doesn't headline a major headlining festival, but its a bona fide loss that more headliners aren't headlining the headline spot at major headlinable festivals.

Maybe you weren't aware, but Foo Fighters have been headlining arena shows for the past several CDs/albums.  It's just in Denver, they've enjoyed playing Red Rocks so that's where they played.
