Foo Fighters have been announced as the second headline act for Glasgow Summer Sessions, at Bellahouston Park in 2019.
The American rock band will return to Scotland after a four-year absence, and will take to the stage on Saturday 17th August at Bellahouston Park. This is the second big announcement for the festival, as the Foo Fighters will be joined by The Cure who are also making a return to Scotland, after a long 27 years.
The announcement of the Foo Fighters at Summer Sessions comes after a run of successful stadium shows in England in 2018, and this is their return to the Scottish live scene.
The supporting acts who have been announced so far are Mogwai, The Twilight Sad and The Joy Formidable. However, support acts for Foo Fighters have yet to be announced. Geoff Ellis, Chief executive of organisers at DF Concerts said: ‘To welcome Foo Fighters to Bellahouston Park for the first time is so exciting for music fans all over Scotland, as they are, to this day, one of the best festival headliners in the world.’
With their outstanding back catalogue, this is bound to be an un-missable show.
Glasgow Summer Sessions, now in its seventh year running seen this year – Kings of Leon, Catfish and The Bottlemen and Kendrick Lamar play at Bellahouston Park. These artists headlined three nights of the festival at the end of August, this year.
