Madison Square Garden is ready to rock. The Manhattan arena will restart its concert calendar on June 20 with the Foo Fighters taking center stage. The show will be the venue’s first 100% capacity concert in over 460 days. However, fans attending must show proof of full vaccination.

"We’ve been waiting for this day for over a year," said lead singer-guitarist Dave Grohl in a statement. "And Madison Square Garden is going to feel that HARD. New York, get ready for a long … night of screaming our heads off together to 26 years of Foos."

This marks the fifth time the Foos are headlining the Garden. The band’s last stint was a two-night sellout in July 2018. The June 20 show kicks off the band’s "25th-26th Anniversary" tour in support of its new album, "Medicine at Midnight," and makes up for missing its 25th anniversary due to the pandemic in 2020.

Tickets ($50-$119) go on sale Friday at 10 a.m. via ticketmaster.com or by calling 866-858-0008. Check Ticketmaster for several presale opportunities.
