While fans in Tennessee and Kentucky were disappointed when the Foo Fighters had to unexpectedly postpone tour dates due to a family emergency, the rockers also just announced a slew of new dates for their Concrete and Gold tour, including an Atlanta gig that will mark the very first concert for the newly christened Georgia State Stadium. The band plays April 28, 2018, with tickets going on sale November 3 at 10 a.m., with promoter Rival Entertainment hosting a presale on Halloween.

Here’s to hoping that Georgia State doesn’t fare the same audio issues that Mercedes-Benz Stadium suffered during their inaugural concert earlier this month, where many fans complained that a “screeching” noise made it hard to hear Garth Brooks and Trisha Yearwood. But the Georgia State Stadium has hosted many concerts in its former life as Turner Field.

The last time the band came through Atlanta was during their 2015 Sonic Highways tour, where Dave Grohl famously had to play from atop a giant throne due to a broken leg.
