Last year, the Foo Fighters were set to celebrate their 25th anniversary with a world tour. Obviously, that was canceled. Instead, they’re celebrating their 26th anniversary this year. The band, fronted by Dave Grohl, have announced the first dates of the trek in July and August.

The six dates announced will begin July 28th in Cincinnati, Ohio, and head to Milwaukee, St. Louis, Bonner Springs, Oklahoma City, and wind up in Albuquerque, New Mexico on August 9th.

Bassist Nate Mendel and the band have more to celebrate this year besides 26 years in the business. Foo Fighters will be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame this year alongside Jay-Z, Tina Turner, the Go-Go’s, Todd Rundgren, and Carole King.

The group’s latest album, Medicine at Midnight, came out earlier this year. Mendel told Bass Player Magazine that the record was inspired by works like David Bowie’s Let’s Dance. “We wanted it to be up, and breezy, and almost dancey,” he told Joel McIver. “That’s a bit of a different sound for us, and we have some different instrumentation, too.”
