In a mere two days, the Foo Fighters will return from their extensive hiatus for a special July 4th performance. According to Rolling Stone, Dave Grohl and co have been tapped to perform a short set on the South Lawn of the White House for President Barack Obama, his family, and invited staffers as part of the First Family’s July 4th festivities. An impressive get for sure, what with Grohl’s newfound fatherhood and current collaborations with John Paul Jones and Josh Homme and bassist Nate Mendel’s upcoming engagements with Sunny Day Real Estates. Then again, this is thee Arcade Fire-loving, Springsteen-approved White House we’re talking about, and who would say no to that?
