Official statement from Foo Fighters concerning upcoming tour dates:
It is with great sadness that Foo Fighters confirm the cancellation of all upcoming tour dates in light of the staggering loss of our brother Taylor Hawkins. We’re sorry for and share in the disappointment that we won’t be seeing one another as planned. Instead, let’s take this time to grieve, to heal, to pull our loved ones close, and to appreciate all the music and memories we’ve made together.
Foo Fighters have announced four huge UK stadium shows for summer 2022, including two nights in London.
Foo Fighters 2022 UK Stadium Show Dates:
Manchester Emirates Old Trafford, 25 June + St Vincent & Loose Articles
Birmingham Villa Park, 27 + Courtney Barnett & Hot Milk
London Stadium, 30 + St Vincent & Shame
London Stadium, 02 July + Courtney Barnett & Hot Milk
The stadium dates are the American rock band’s first shows in the UK since their headline slots at the Reading & Leeds Festival in summer 2019.
Frontman Dave Grohl commented, “We can’t f*cking wait to get back to the UK!… It’s been far too long. Get ready to make up for lost time with some long ass nights of rock & roll.”
Their critically acclaimed No.1 album ‘Medicine At Midnight’ dropped earlier this year. The full-length is the band’s tenth studio release to date and features hit tracks ‘Shame Shame’ and ‘Waiting On A War’.
They made an historic return to the live stage at New York’s Madison Square Garden to play the city’s first full capacity show in more than a year. More recently, the rockers begun a series of sold-out headline dates across the pond as well as closed out this year’s Lollapalooza festival in Chicago with a triumphant headline set.
Foo Fighters are Dave Grohl, Taylor Hawkins, Nate Mendel, Chris Shiflett, Pat Smear and Rami Jaffee.
Don’t miss out on the chance to snap up tickets and catch the band bring their legendary blend of rock and roll to stages across the UK next year!
