After revealing that they plan to continue on as a band following the 2022 death of drummer Taylor Hawkins, Foo Fighters have announced their first show of 2023.

Dave Grohl and company will headline this year’s Boston Calling festival, taking place May 26-28 at Beantown’s Harvard Athletic Complex.

There’s no word yet on who will be playing drums with the Foos for the show. During their two tribute concerts to Hawkins last September, the “Everlong” rockers were joined by a number of guest drummers, including Blink-182‘s Travis Barker, Chad Smith of Red Hot Chili Peppers, prolific session drummer Josh Freese and Hawkins’ teenage son, Shane.

In a statement posted New Year’s Eve, Foo Fighters wrote, “Without Taylor, we never would have become the band that we were — and without Taylor, we know that we’re going to be a different band going forward.”

The 2023 Boston Calling bill also includes Paramore, Queens of the Stone Age, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, The Lumineers, Alanis Morissette, The National, Bleachers, The Linda Lindas and The Flaming Lips. Presale begins this Thursday, January 12, at 10 a.m. ET.
