The Band Will Play Four UK Dates Next Summer
Tickets On General Sale Friday 20th August at 9am BST
Foo Fighters are currently on tour across the US in support of their latest album, ‘Medicine At Midnight’, and have today announced that in Summer 2022, the UK will get to hear the new album belted out in stadiums across the UK. The band will play two dates in London, as well as a date in Manchester and Birmingham. Kicking off at Emirates Old Trafford in Manchester on the 25th June 2022, the run includes a date at Birmingham’s Villa Park and a return to London Stadium for two huge dates on 30th June and 2nd July. Support for the dates will come from St Vincent, Courtney Barnett, Shame, Hot Milk and Loose Articles. For who will be supporting on which dates, keep reading!
These must- see shows will no doubt be the concert highlight of next year and will be the band’s first shows in the UK since their headline slot at Reading & Leeds Festival summer 2019.
Following the release of their critically acclaimed #1 album, Medicine At Midnight, earlier this year, Foo Fighters made an historic return to the stage at New York’s Madison Square Garden, playing the city’s first full capacity show in more than a year. More recently, the band has begun a series of sold-out headline dates and a triumphant headline set closing out this year’s Lollapalooza festival in Chicago.
“We can’t f*cking wait to get back to the UK” Dave Grohl said. “It’s been far too long. Get ready to make up for lost time with some long ass nights of rock & roll.”
