Ash and The Strypes to support Foo Fighters in Ireland

Kaiser Chiefs and Hozier had already been confirmed as supports for the Slane Castle gig

Foo Fighters have added more support acts to their upcoming Irish show at Slane Castle.

Dave Grohl and co will play their solo Ireland date of the summer on May 30, with Kaiser Chiefs and Hozier previously confirmed as opening acts for the show. Now, they’ve added Northern Ireland’s Ash and Cavan fourpiece The Strypes.

Foo Fighters recently confirmed they are to headline the 2015 event during their acceptance speech at the NME Awards 2015 with Austin, Texas.

Dave Grohl recently hinted that a second series of ‘Sonic Highways’ could be based in the UK.

Named after the group’s recent album of the same title, the TV series originally premiered on HBO (and later BBC Four in the UK) in October 2014. It followed Dave Grohl and the band as they recorded their eighth LP in eight different cities around America.

Speaking to Billboard, Grohl said: “There might be a season two. There are a lot of studios.”

As for the location of these studios, Grohl seemed to suggest that getting out of America is where the future of the show lies. “If we went to somewhere like Abbey Road it’d be fun to interview someone like Paul McCartney or George Martin, that’d be kind of cool,” he said. “Or go to say, Berlin, and interview someone like David Bowie or Iggy [Pop]. You could go to Manchester and interview the Happy Mondays, guys.”

Foo Fighters play the following live dates:

Sunderland Stadium Of Light (May 25)
Manchester Emirates Old Trafford (27)
Ireland Slane Castle (May 30)
London Wembley Stadium (June 19, 20)
Edinburgh Murrayfield Stadium (23)
