Fresh from an appearance at SXSW in Austin, the Foo Fighters are back and want to play a show in your garage in front of 50 of your closest friends.
"The Foo Fighters Garage Tour" is a nod to their new album, "Wasting Light," which arrives in stores on April 12. The new album was recorded in Dave Grohl's San Fernando Valley garage, so the band decided to go on a garage tour, starting April 8 in New York, and running through April 27 in Seattle.
To enter the contest, go to www.FooFighters.com. The first single from the new album, "Rope," is available now on iTunes.
