Foo Fighters are planning their 25th anniversary with 'The Van Tour'

Foo Fighters have announced plans to celebrate their 25th anniversary as a band.

The rock titans will hit the road, playing the same stops they did on their very first US tour back in 1995.

With a new album set to arrive later this year, 'The Van Tour' will see the band "hitting a number of the same spots that Dave Grohl, Nate Mendel and Pat Smear trail-blazed in a Dodge van all those years ago". Obviously, they'll be playing more suitably sized arenas this time round. Let's not be silly about this.

Before each show, fans will get a preview of Grohl's new 'What Drives Us' doc, described as “a deep dive into what possesses a particular tribe of human beings to leave behind jobs, families, relationships and any semblance of sanity to climb into a busted ass econoline and take their music to the people – or at least a dozen or so of them here and there.”

“What Drives Us explores motivations, recounts personal anecdotes, and explores the physical and psychological toll of touring in vans via interviews with members of van tour veteran bands ranging from Black Flag and Dead Kennedys to Metallica and The Beatles, and many, many more.”

The dates read:

April
12 PHOENIX, AZ, Talking Stick Resort Arena
14 ALBUQUERQUE, NM, Santa Ana Star Center
16 OKLAHOMA CITY, OK, Chesapeake Energy Arena
18 WICHITA, KS, INTRUST Bank Arena
20 KNOXVILLE, TN, Thompson-Boiling Arena

May
10 GREEN BAY, WI, Resch Center
12 GRAND RAPIDS, MI, Van Andel Arena
14 CINCINNATI, OH, Heritage Bank Center
18 CLEVELAND, OH, Rocket Mortgage Arena
