Foo Fighters took to Veeps for a special livestream event today (May 21) where they revealed their new drummer.
The livestream opened with a fun skit where the Foos bantered back and forth in their rehearsal space. During their chat, there were three fake-out moments where Chad Smith, Tommy Lee and Danny Carey entered. All three gave the impression they were the band’s new drummer, but then exited. Finally, Josh Freese chimed in behind the kit. He asks the band if they could get started with the show, thus, confirming he’s the new Foo drummer.
Freese is an accomplished session drummer. He’s appeared on a wide variety of releases for a very diverse roster of artists. Among those artists are Bruce Springsteen, Slash, The Offspring, Miley Cyrus, Sting and many more. Additionally, he’s been a member of A Perfect Circle, Nine Inch Nails and Guns N’ Roses. Currently, he’s also a member of The Vandals and Devo.
The setlist for the livestream is below and will be updated throughout the livestream. A full list of upcoming headlining festival dates for the Foos this summer is also below. Along with the festival dates, Foo Fighters have select solo shows in 2023. In fact, the first Foo Fighters show in 2023 in a solo show on May 24 in Gilford, NH.
