Cal Jam 2017
Foo Fighters at Cal Jam 2017 (more by Adela Loconte)

Foo Fighters have announced some pretty amazing openers for their North American summer/fall tour, which starts this July. The second of the two shows at Boston’s Fenway Park will be opened by Dave Grohl’s longtime Boston-area pals Dinosaur Jr, plus a great newer band to emerge from the Mass. indie rock scene, Speedy Ortiz. Chicago indie rockers Melkbelly (who are signed to Speedy Ortiz singer Sadie Dupuis’ Carpark imprint) are opening the first of two shows at Chicago’s Wrigley Field. Australia’s great, arena-ready rockers Gang of Youths are opening a string of dates for the Foos in October.

Unfortunately for New Yorkers, the openers at Jones Beach and the two MSG shows are The Struts (those three shows are also sold out). All openers listed by date, below.

Foo Fighters are also throwing their second annual Cal Jam festival in San Bernardino, CA on October 6 with Iggy Pop and his Post Pop Depression band, Tenacious D, Garbage, Manchester Orchestra, The Front Bottoms, Black Mountain, Deer Tick, Gang of Youths, METZ, Anna Von Hausswolff, Krist Novoselic’s band Giants in the Trees, and more.
