Foo Fighters, Death Cab opening Climate Pledge Arena with Seattle benefit concert

It looks like Seattle music fans will get a peek at the new Climate Pledge Arena a little sooner than we thought.

It appears that Foo Fighters are set to headline the Seattle Center arena’s first concert on Oct. 19, a few days earlier than a Coldplay show previously billed as CPA’s grand opening.

As of this writing, no official word from the band or arena brass has come down, though we’ve reached out to CPA reps for comment. But a Ticketmaster ticket page to what’s described as “A New Way Home” benefit concert is live, indicating that tickets go on sale at noon Thursday.

Seattle indie rock stars Death Cab for Cutie are also on the bill and announced the concert through their email list. According to the band’s newsletter, a portion of the proceeds will benefit Real Rent Duwamish and the Northwest Immigrant Rights Project, and fans can access the sale with the pass code “DCFCSEATTLE.”
