Foo Fighters have announced their first tour date of 2017 – after being confirmed to headline Nos Alive festival.

Over the weekend, Dave Grohl and co teased that they’d be returning to the road – after sharing a photo of Europe from space, with Portugal illuminated. Now, it’s revealed that they’ll be joining previously announced headliners Depeche Mode in topping the bill at Lisbon’s Nos Alive.
