The last you have seen of the Foo Fighters is probably that night when they won the Best Rock video at the MTV Video Music Awards. For the Foo Fighters’ loyal fans out there, the band has a special treat just for you. Out of all the band’s other previous tours, the latest scheduled Foo Fighters tour this fall is probably the hottest and craziest tour they have as the band showcase their many talents.
The Foo Fighters which currently includes band member Dave Grohl, Chris Shiflett, Nate Mendel, and Taylor Hawkins, released a little promo for their awaiting fans with a teaser video for their upcoming North American tour. The band will embark not only in the northern part of the U.S., but also in Canada, Australia, and New Zealand. In conjunction with the tour, the band posted their latest tour trailer. Their ‘Hot Buns’ video features the band members as dirty truckers at a truck stop diner having a group shower. Dressed up in hillybilly cowboys, the band putts their hand on each other’s naked behind. Most sites show a censored, pixelated behind. However, for those who are dying to see the through those heavy pixels, the uncensored version of the trailer is posted on the band’s official website.
Dave Grohl does know marketing as evidenced by their latest tour teaser video. The video is completely indescribable, but then it’s the Foo Fighters, what more is there to be surprised about. Straight guys need not worry about watching though, as the video is just for good fun. Also, the band is known for the tradition of making such videos. One of their latest funny videos is from their ‘Waking Lights’ album, ‘Walk’. With the band’s most recently released album, the band spends most of their time touring in support of ‘Waking Lights’.
A musician should know that making music means nothing if no one else will listen to it. Putting out loads for ads and other promotional materials is a major factor of a record or track’s success. With this in mind, The Foo Fighters always know how to cleverly put up a promotional campaign for their singles and albums. This rock/grunge hero of a band took a creative and provocative approach in promoting their two month tour in North America. At this age of viral marketing, the Foo Fighters has indeed made sure the video is both provocative and marketable to their fans. However, you should remember that the video is supposed to be a Foo Fighters tickets announcement. At the end of the video clip is a list of tour dates which will cover one coast to another while mostly touring in the United States.
