Foo Fighters Announce 2015 UK Tour
To coincide with the release of their 8th studio album Sonic Highways, which came out this week to critical acclaim, Foo Fighters have announced a five-date UK stadium tour next summer, with tickets going on sale at 10am on November 21st.
The band will kick-off the tour at Sunderland’s Stadium of Light, then heading on to Emirates Old Trafford in Manchester followed by London for a two-night run at Wembley Stadium – a venue the Foo Fighters have a strong affinity with after two record setting shows in 2008.
Final stop is Scotland to bring the curtain down on the tour with what will be a momentous show at Edinburgh’s Murrayfield Stadium.
Sonic Highways was recorded in eight different musical capital cities of America, with the process and related experiences documented in an eight-part docuseries broadcast on BBC Four. The result is an amazing companion to the most ambitious Foo Fighters record to date–the same is sure to be said of this stadium tour in the year of the band’s 20th anniversary.
Support comes from Iggy Pop (Wembley only) and Royal Blood (Wembley & Edinburgh only).
