Foo Fighters Tapped to Reopen Madison Square Garden

After being dark for a record 460 days, Madison Square Garden officials have announced plans to reopen the venue — with a Foo Fighters concert.

“We’ve been waiting for this day for over a year,” reads a statement released by frontman Dave Grohl. “And Madison Square Garden is going to feel that hard.”

Tickets for the June 20th show go on sale this Friday.
