Grammy-winning rockers Foo Fighters will be bringing their 25th anniversary "The Van Tour 2020" to Oklahoma City for an April 16 show at Chesapeake Energy Arena, 100 W Reno.

The band is commemorating its silver anniversary in some of the same cities where the first Foo Fighters shows took place in 1995. Beginning April 12 at the Talking Stick Resort Arena in Phoenix, Arizona, the Foo Fighters’ "Van Tour 2020" will hit a number of the same spots that Dave Grohl, Nate Mendel and Pat Smear trailblazed in a Dodge van all those years ago — in arenas this time.


In addition to customary all-night rock n roll marathons from 1995 "Van Tour" veterans Grohl, Mendel and Smear and their longtime comrades Taylor Hawkins, Chris Shiflett and Rami Jaffee, each "2020 Van Tour" show will feature a special opening attraction: A sneak peek at an excerpt from Grohl’s new documentary "What Drives Us."

The "2020 Van Tour" will feature a short preview from Grohl's 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 Econoline and take their music to the people - or at least a dozen or so of them here and there, according to a news release. "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.
