NEW YORK – New York City's Madison Square Garden is ready to rock ‘n' roll again.

MSG Entertainment announced Tuesday that Foo Fighters will help re-open the famed arena with a concert on June 20 — the venue's first show in more than 460 days.

MSG says the concert for vaccinated audience members will be its first at 100% capacity. Tickets go on sale Friday.

“We’ve been waiting for this day for over a year," Dave Grohl said in a statement. “And Madison Square Garden is going to feel that HARD."

Foo Fighters, who first headlined the Garden in 2008, last played at the venue in 2018.
