According to the NME, the Church, who gained notoriety for regularly picketing the funerals of fallen US soldiers, have promised to turn up outside the Foos' show at Kansas City's Sprint Center on 16 September.
Achieving infamy thanks to some high profile public appearances, the Westboro Baptist Church have reached a level of prominence far beyond their meagre funds. Even British audiences have taken notice of their often extreme actions, with Louis Theroux being dispatched (twice) to investigate.
Westboro Baptist Church are set to picket Foo Fighters in response to their recent 'Hot Buns' video. 'Hot Buns' was a viral designed to promote the band's upcoming North American tour. Dressed as truckers, Foo Fighters engage in some saucy activities in the shower as they seemingly aim to re-create a gay porn film.
According to a statement on the church's protest schedule, they have opted to picket Dave Grohl and co's show because "The entertainment industry is a microcosm of the people in this doomed nation: hard-hearted, hell-bound, and hedonistic. These people have a platform and should be using it to encourage obedience to God; instead they teach every person who will listen all things contrary to him."
It continues: "The people in this nation have sinned away their day of grace and have so enraged their God that you are seeing new outpourings of his wrath continually. We will be there to remind you that the day of your destruction is upon you, even as you vainly seek comfort in the frivolities of this life."
Foo Fighters fans have reacted angrily to the planned protest, with some fans calling for singer Dave Grohl to confront the protesters himself.
