Mr. Nimbus | 02/20/2024

The Foo Fighters will scale down from stadiums and arenas to perform an intimate, one-night-only private gig in Washington, D.C. in support of Power to the Patients on March 5. The show will be hosted by the non-profit that is fighting for a more affordable, accessible and equitable healthcare system via price transparency.

“When we were asked by Power to the Patients to help raise awareness of the need for transparency in healthcare pricing, we immediately said yes,” the band said in a statement about the show for congressional leaders and government officials. “People suffering from illness and injury shouldn’t have to worry about being bankrupted by surprise charges for their treatment.”

The show will also feature appearances from Public Enemy’s Chuck D and Fat Joe, both of whom have spoken out in support of the group that has advocated for upfront pricing in the healthcare system. “With more than 100 million Americans suffering from medical debt due to surprise bills and lack of accountability, it’s time for all elected officials to come together and turn the page on our nation’s broken and opaque healthcare system,” the organization said in a release announcing the show.

The Foos are the latest musicians to travel to the nation’s capital in support of Power to the Patients, joining a list that includes Jelly Roll, Wyclef Jean, French Montana, Rick Ross, Busta Rhymes, Fat Joe, Chuck D., Method Man, Lainey Wilson, Valerie June, Everclear and artist Shepard Fairey. Fat Joe has previously visited Capitol Hill to sit with members of Congress in an effort to urge them to pass legislation codifying and expanding healthcare price transparency.

Jelly Roll, Wilson and June appeared in a Super Bowl LVIII commercial for Power to the Patients, just weeks after Jelly joined Fat Joe and Wyclef at a Power to the Patients event in D.C. to advocate for fair billing to a group of 500 government officials and members of Congress.
