This is a call to Foo Fighters fans! The band are coming over to play four massive shows in the UK next June and July, and tickets go on sale this week!

Dave Grohl and his pals, who are currently rocking venues across the US, will head over to the UK in 2022 for their first shows in the UK since their epic headline slot at Reading & Leeds Festival back in 2019.

Kicking off at Emirates Old Trafford in Manchester on Saturday June 25th, they will then head to Villa Park in Birmingham the following Monday, before playing two huge dates at the London Stadium on June 30th and July 2nd. 

Posting the tour dates on Twitter, the band said: “Get ready to make up for lost time with some long ass nights of rock & roll.”

Having released their critically acclaimed, chart-topping album, Medicine At Midnight, earlier this year, Foo Fighters were one of the first bands to kick the live music scene back into action in the US. They played New York’s first full-capacity show in more than a year, at Madison Square Garden, and have since delivered a string of sold-out headline dates around the country, along with a triumphant headline set at Lollapalooza festival in Chicago.

If you are planning on heading along to one of these Foo Fighters’ UK shows, then be sure to arrive early enough to catch the support acts, because there are some awesome artists playing before the main act across the different venues. Annie Clark, better known as St Vincent, will play two dates, as will Australian singer/songwriter Courtney Barnett. Hot Milk and Loose Articles will also offer support, while amazing Brixton post-punks Shame are definitely a band not to miss.  

Tickets for Foo Fighters’ 2022 UK tour go on sale here at 9am on Friday August 20th. So set yourself a reminder, because these tickets are going to be popular! Here are the dates:

  • Saturday 25 June: Manchester, Emirates Old Trafford (with St. Vincent and Loose Articles)

  • Monday 27 June: Birmingham, Villa Park (with Courtney Barnett and Hot Milk)

  • Thursday 30 June: London, London Stadium (with St. Vincent and Shame)

  • Saturday 2 June: London, London Stadium (with Courtney Barnett and Hot Milk)
