Default Biggest ever Washington D.C. show - July 4th 2015 at RFK Stadium

So we've all seen the picture of the guys stood inside RFK Stadium, just like they did before the Chicago show. Assuming a show there is about to be announced soon, looks like it'll be July 4th to celebrate the exact 20th anniversary of S/T being released.

Listen from 14:40 of this interview where Dave basically gives this away.

http://www.dc101.com/media/play/dc10...rohl-25471796/

"If you can figure out when the 20th anniversary of our first record is, then you'll know when we're gonna play our biggest show here ever".

That's one show I would love to attend! If only I won the euro millions between now & then...

Are we thinking it'll be another supporting bill of local bands? If so who?

I'm thinking so. Bad Brains had a LOT of coverage in the episode so those along with Trouble Funk are possible I guess, pretty different for your average FF crowd in 2015 though. Then again so are Naked Raygun and Urge Overkill so I suppose they're no different.

I think Scream and/or Bad Brains and/or The Dont Need Its would be there somewhere.

I said last week when the Chicago date was announced it'd be nice if each SH City got a massive show celebrating local bands. This whole: tweet club poster - club gig - tweet stadium pic - announce stadium gig & repeat thing is great.

I'll definitely be there!

SO glad it's at RFK too. Even better that Dan Snyder won't see a dime and that it will actually be IN DC!

But I want to see them in the SMALLEST show ever!

With all due respect to those bands, I think a BIG show needs BIG name bands.

Haven't seen Foo Fighters at RFK since the 1998 HFStival. Remember do not eat at the concession stand. This show is a throwback . Trouble Funk, RDGldgrn, Teen Idles, Scream, Minor Threat, and Fugazi. Well I think Foo should add Periphery to the bill even though the DC metal scene is weak and they mainly play hometown shows in Baltimore. However that band started in Bethesda.

I was thinking the same thing after they announced Wrigley. Playing stadium gigs in the 8 cities is a great idea. Although I'm more excited about the possibility of the 20th anniversary club gigs next spring. Either way, 2015 will be an awesome time to be a Foo fan.

I am so there however if the ticket gods are unkind I may cry..

Also, plus on this is that RFK sells tix thru ticketmaster as opposed to tickets.com (Wrigley) so we actually have a chance at tix. I am can't believe I am saying this but I am grateful for ticketbastard this time.

Wondering when it'll be announced. Wrigley was announced on the Monday after. Maybe today?

Remember do not eat at the RFK concession stand. Its freakin ewww. I do mean it. I dunno how its improved after the Nationals played there for a couple of seasons but man I dunno how the Washington Redskins had concessions there. I hope its all GA like the Old HFStivals.
