Foo Fighters have announced today that they will be playing three massive stadium shows on these shores in June 2018.
Dave Grohl and co. had a busy summer in Britain, with their last show coming at a packed-out O2 in London, to celebrate the release of their latest album Concrete And Gold. The gig was also notable for the appearance of Rick Astley, who joined the band onstage for a duet.

The Foos also produced an epic headlining set at this year’s Glastonbury festival, celebrating their return, having had to pull out of the festival in 2015, due to Grohl falling offstage and breaking his leg.
Before the announcement of the three dates, the band began to hint towards a UK stint on their official Twitter, parodying the artwork for the Sex Pistols’ ‘God Save the Queen’, with the members of the bands’ faces in place of the monarch’. Tickets for the stadium shows go on sale at 9am on Friday, October 20. You can see the full list of dates below.

As well as Glastonbury, Grohl and co. also headlined their own festival Cal Jam. Their set was also notable for a massive onstage collaboration and cover of The Beatles’ ‘Come Together’, which saw the band joined onstage by Laim Gallagher and Aerosmith guitarist Joe Perry.
