Free Foo Fighters Sets To Bookend Debate

The Foo Fighters have scheduled a pair of free performances to take place before and after the upcoming final debate between the major candidates for the U.S. Presidency. The sets will take place tomorrow at the Arizona Democratic Party’s Debate Watch Party in Tempe Beach Park.

Tickets for the free show are available via Democratic candidate John Kerry’s official Web site. There is a four-ticket limit per request. The campaign staff is also seeking volunteers for the event through the request page.

Earlier in Kerry’s campaign, Foos frontman Dave Grohl participated in rallies in Wisconsin, Iowa and Missouri, where he performed acoustic sets. He has said that he decided to take part after learning that President George Bush’s re-election campaign had been playing Foo Fighters songs, including the band’s 1997 single “My Hero,” at their rallies.

Grohl and the Foo Fighters have not been on the road, but are taking a break from recording their fifth album to perform at the Kerry rally. As previously reported, the release will likely boast one acoustic and one electric disc.
