The Anthem show will be the first Foo Fighters performance in D.C. since the band’s triumphant July 4, 2015 extravaganza at RFK Stadium. That concert was also Dave Grohl‘s first show back since falling off a stage in Sweden and breaking his leg.

Earlier this month, Foo Fighters premiered a thrashy new song called “Run.” The band is reportedly working on a new album, their follow-up to 2014’s Sonic Highways.
