Foo Fighters are taking it back to 1995 this year with a brief 25th-anniversary tour.

The Van Tour was announced through the official Foo Fighters website on Tuesday morning and will see the Monkey WrenchΒ rockers quite literally tour throughout North America in a “big red” van, as they did in the mid-1990s.

Over the course of five weeks, frontman Dave Grohl and co. will play 10 cities across the U.S. and Canada where they played during their first national tour.

Though “the Foo” were playing clubs and small theatres in support of their self-titled debut album in ’95, this time around, they’ll be playing arenas, incorporating an “in the round”-type show β€” meaning the stage will be at the centre of each venue.

The trek kicks off on April 12 in Phoenix, Ariz., and concludes on May 20, in Hamilton, Ont., at the FirstOntario Centre.

No opening acts have been announced for the Van Tour.

For those signed up to the Foo Fighters’ digital newsletter, an exclusive ticket presale begins Tuesday at 12 p.m. in each local time zone.

All remaining tickets go on sale to the general public Friday at 10 a.m.
