The event will take place on June 20 and will be the first time a concert will be held at the venue since the COVID-19 pandemic.
“We’ve been waiting for this day for over a year,” Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl said in a news release. “And Madison Square Garden is about to feel that hard.”
This is the first concert at Madison Square Garden in more than 460 days.
News of the concert comes just a day after New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio announced that legendary music producer Clive Davis would help organize a concert to celebrate New York’s reopening in Central Park this August.
“This concert is going to be a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity,” de Blasio said. “It’s going to be an amazing lineup. The whole week will be like nothing you’ve ever seen before in New York City.”
