Foo Fighters have announced the massive line up of acts who will be supporting them on their UK tour next June.
Joining the band as they travel around the country celebrating their latest release ‘Concrete and Gold’ will be a mixture of Wolf Alice, Frank Carter and The Rattlesnakes, The Kills, Slaves, Starcrawler and The Cribs.
Speaking of Wolf Alice, during an interview with NME magazine, Dave Grohl recalled a time where he believed Wolf Alice were scared of the band whilst reflecting on the bands ‘open door’ policy whilst recording. “Do we seem like some super-elitist rock snobs? We have an open-door policy with this band. It’s that open-door policy that has seen a number of surprising guests feature on ‘Concrete And Gold’, from Justin Timberlake (“The guy’s an incredible singer”) to Shawn Stockman from Boyz II Men and basically anybody who happened to be passing through LA’s star-studded EastWest studios at the time they were making the record. He continued with “when you’re in a studio like that and Rufus Wainwright is down the hall and the guy from Deep Purple is in the other room and Lady Gaga is wandering around and Wolf Alice were there for a week…I was just doing all this crazy barbecuing and talking to everyone. Gaga would come in and listen to the record. Wolf Alice were scared of us though, I think.”
Meanwhile, Foo Fighters are also in the running for two Grammy awards. Their track ‘Run’ has been nominated for best rock song, and best rock performance.
