The band had to cancel UK appearances last month after singer Dave Grohl broke his leg in Sweden.
Foo Fighters have announced they'll be returning to the UK in September, just months after Dave Grohl’s broken leg forced the band to cancel arena shows and pull out of their Glastonbury headlining slot. The band ended up having to cancel the rest of their European tour in June when Grohl broke his leg after falling from the stage during a gig Sweden.
Foo Fighters will return to the UK in September.
The band will play two shows at Milton Keynes Bowl on September 5th and 6th, with support coming from legendary Stooges frontman Iggy Pop. Then on September 8th they’ll head to Edinburgh's Murrayfield Stadium, will Royal Blood opening.
A statement from the band reads, ”You have always stood by our band, and we will always stand by you. Like I say at every show, we wouldn’t be here if it weren’t for you guys. And I mean that. I thank you from the bottom of my heart. And I will do everything I can to come back and give you a night to remember for the rest of your lives as soon as possible.”
Any fans who had tickets for the band’s Wembley Stadium shows in June will be offered the option of purchasing tickets to the Milton Keynes show before they go on sale to the public on Friday (July 15th).
Of course we all know anything can happen at a Foos show and last week during a gig in Toronto the band were joined by a special guest drummer, a lucky fan named Anthony Bifolchi. Bifolchi had made a sign which read "It’s my birthday, can I play drums?" which caught the attention of frontman Dave Grohl. Grohl then invited Bifolchi to join the band onstage, telling him, "You better not suck!”
When Grohl asked him what song he wanted to play with the band Bifolchi answered with 'Best Of You', to which Grohl replied: "No way you're playing that, that's our last song!” Bifolchi ended up performed 'Big Me' with the band, which even led to some praise from Grohl who told him "That was actually pretty good” when they had finished.
