Foo Fighters Bring Back Old-School 1995 Tour Shirt To Raise Money For Music Venues

The Foos are getting behind the #SaveOurVenues and #SaveOurStages campaigns with this 1995 tour merch.

Foo Fighters are releasing the ultimate throwback tour tee to help raise money for struggling venues – both in the UK and America – amid the coronavirus pandemic.

The band are releasing the original merch designs from their 1995 tour for the UK’s #SaveOurVenues campaign, as well as the National Independent Venue Association’s #SaveOurStages in the U.S.

All proceeds from what is known as the Roswell Alien Design’ T‑shirts will go to the country’s respective fundraising efforts – so you can help support venues while also pretending like you were lucky enough to either be at Arcata, California’s Jambalaya Club on February 23 a quarter of a century ago, or at London’s King’s College on June 3, 1995. (Hey, nobody needs to know these are re-released shirts, alright?)

Back in May, Foos frontman Dave Grohl wrote a brilliant op-ed piece about the lack of live music right now, reflecting on his lucky position up onstage for all these years while also being incredibly optimistic about the future.

But I do know that we will do it again, because we have to,” he said. It’s not a choice. We’re human. We need moments that reassure us that we are not alone. That we are understood. That we are imperfect. And, most important, that we need each other.

I have shared my music, my words, my life with the people who come to our shows. And they have shared their voices with me. Without that audience – that screaming, sweating audience – my songs would only be sound. But together, we are instruments in a sonic cathedral, one that we build together night after night. And one that we will surely build again.”
