Foo Fighters, Death Cab will open Climate Pledge Arena with benefit concert

Seems like Climate Pledge Arena will be christened with live music a little earlier than expected!

Attentive fans noticed tickets go on sale yesterday, Sept. 30 for something called "A New Way Home" benefit concert with the bands. As of this writing, there has been no formal announcement from Climate Pledge Arena, though Death Cab for Cutie posted about the show on their Facebook page and Foo Fighters on Twitter.

The show is set for October 19, three days before the Coldplay show (Oct. 22) which, when announced early September, was billed as the "Grand Opening" show for the arena.

A portion of the proceeds benefit the Northwest Immigrant Rights Project and Real Rent Duwamish.

Tickets are on sale now. Reminder: Climate Pledge Arena will require proof of COVID-19 vaccination for all guests ages 12 and older upon entry. Find more info online.
