Foo Fighters announce makeup UK shows

The Foo Fighters have announced three makeup dates in the UK following cancelled appearances last month at Wembley Stadium and the Glastonbury Fetsival due to Dave Grohl’s broken leg.

On June 12 in Gothenburg, Sweden, Grohl fell off stage early in the show, received treatement, and returned to finish the concert. But the incident led to the cancellation of the group’s European tour, including the pair of UK dates.

Now, the Foo Fighters will return to play The National Bowl in Milton Keynes on September 5 and 6 with guest Iggy Pop, and Edinburgh’s BT Murrayfield Stadium on September 8 with openers Royal Blood and Honeyblood.

Fans who bought tickets to the Foos’ concert at Wembley Stadium will be given priority pre-sale booking for the Milton Keynes dates starting July 15.

Tickets go on general sale on Friday, July 17.

The Foo Fighters recently launched a North American tour in support of “Sonic Highways” with a 20th anniversary show at RFK Stadium in Washington, DC on July that saw Grohl play the show with his leg in a cast while sitting on a metal throne.

The event in the rocker’s hometown landed 20 years to the day of the release of the group’s self-titled debut album, which the singer wrote and recorded on his own.
