The Press Release:
Further making good on their New Year’s Eve promise that they’d see you all soon, Foo Fighters have announced three new headline shows. The newly confirmed dates, which add to a 2023 touring regimen of festivals including Bonnaroo, Boston Calling, Harley-Davidson Homecoming and more, are:
The 2022 year is coming to an end to make way for the dawn that is 2023 and while many artists are quiet, the Foo Fighters have taken to Facebook to give their audience an update. I’ve added the image itself but also transcribed should it not look right on a mobile device for some reason.
The Foo Fighters have announced a special surprise performance at the Coney Island Ampitheater (which used to be listed as the Ford Ampitheater beforehand). Learn more about the appearance and plan your attendance and visit to the famous Nathan’s as well down below on the poster.
For the safety of concertgoers and venue staff, all attendees of shows on the Foo Fighters tour must provide proof of a negative FDA-authorized COVID-19 Rapid Antigen test, PCR, or other diagnostic test that is date and time stamped within 48 hours prior to entrance into the venue or proof of full COVID-19 vaccination (14 days past the final vaccination shot).

Artist: Me First and The Gimme Gimmes Title: “Santa Baby” (Single) Label: Fat Wreck Chords Release Date: 11/30/2018 Genre: Punk/Holiday Rating: 4/5
Truth be told, the band Me First and The Gimme Gimmes is a bit of a guilty pleasure for me since everything that I listen to from them just puts me in a fun and rocking mood. For those in the unaware, MFATGG are technically a cover band but one that makes lightning fast renditions of the classics they do and even toss in teasers from other songs to see if you’re paying attention. I’d compare them to being a Punk Rock version of The Nerds if you needed more information about what they are. You’re going to want to look up albums like “Have A Ball” and “Are A Drag” when time permits but with my being on a Holiday Hootnanny kick with Christmastime heading our way, I was stoked to learn that they had offered up their own version of the classic “Santa Baby” which was originally sung by Eartha Kitt. She played Catwoman at one point on the classic “Batman” television series if you didn’t know. Continue reading “Santa Baby” (Single) by Me First and The Gimme Gimmes→
Musician Dave Grohl has taken his band The Foo Fighters on the road for an interesting documentary (err “ROCKUMENTARY”) series where they will be making stops across the country as a part of a new HBO Original Series. Now that the PiercingMetal website is 100% WordPress and our “Musings” Blog a part of the regular content being served up, I’ll be showcasing a lot of stuff like this to mix it up. The band stops in our own stomping grounds of New York City for the final episode and you can find a teaser for this one below. Past episode teasers can be examined HERE.
