Like so many others, the Foo Fighters had pretty big plans for 2020 — plans that were dashed due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The year marked the band‘s 25th anniversary, marking two and a half decades since Dave Grohl formed the project out of the ashes of Nirvana and set in stone a reign atop the rock world that is still felt today. The pandemic ruined the Foo Fighters’ planned Washington D.C. blowout (which was cancelled in late April) and, now, the ‘Van Tour’ — which was supposed to recreate the band’s original tour back in the ’90s.

The dates were first rescheduled, but have now been officially cancelled due to the pandemic:

It’s no secret Grohl and the band are itching to get back on the road. Theirs has always been a live show unlike all others, in terms of entertainment, and it’s a big reason why Grohl penned a passionate essay about the eventual return of live music — and how glorious it will be.

Grohl has kept busy on his own in recent weeks, despite the lack of actual concerts. In addition to the essay above, he also wrote another deeply personal column for The Atlantic, “In Defense of Our Teachers” and the school reopening plans in the works across the country.

Musically, Grohl also collaborated with Inara George of the Bird and the Bee on a reworking of George’s song “Sex in Cars,” which premiered on Friday:

The song is part of a new series of COVID-19 relief:

“Sex In Cars: Road Angel Project” is the first in a series of “Road Angel Project” releases, which will see all proceeds donated via a partnership with Sweet Relief Musicians Fund. The COVID- 19 Relief Fund at Sweet Relief provides financial assistance to all types of career musicians and music industry workers who have lost income due to the global pandemic.
