They made a promise and they’ve kept it, Foo Fighters will be returning to the UK in the summer of 2024 for dates in London, Manchester, Glasgow, Cardiff, and Birmingham. Support acts include Wet Leg, Shame and Courtney Barnett.
The band just released their brand new album ‘But Here We Are’, which was written in response to the death of drummer Taylor Hawkins. The album is a passionate and incredible cumulation of songs helping us all deal with grief in our own way. Grohl’s still got it, and might even be better than ever.
The band originally planned to play Manchester, Birmingham and London in the summer of 2022, but these dates were cancelled after Hawkin’s death, who was aged just 50. They officially announced their tour on Monday the 26th of June after having appeared as surprise guests at Glastonbury Festival under the name ‘The Churn-ups’, in a heartfelt letter to fans, Grohl explained the meaning behind that name.
“I see you… And it feels good to see you, churning up these emotions together. Because we’ve always done this together. Time and time again.”
Their upcoming UK tour will be their first in the UK without late drummer Taylor Hawkins who died in March 2022, and in September of that year the band played a massive memorial concert to 90,000 fans. A presale for their upcoming dates starts on Wednesday the 28th of June at 9am BST and ends on Thursday the 29th of June at 10am BST, general tickets go on sale on Friday the 30th of June at 9am BST via GigsAnd Tours and Ticketmaster.
