Foo Fighters UK Tour To Kick Off: NME Readers On Their Dream Setlist

Rock fans the nation over should be getting very excited indeed, because the Foo Fighters return to these shores to kick off a scattered run of UK dates this weekend. Starting with a casual headline slot at BBC Radio 1’s Big Weekend in Norwich before their own stadium shows in Sunderland, Manchester and Slane next week, Dave Grohl and the boys are then off to prance around mainland Europe, returning for two Wembley Stadium shows as well as a gig in Edinburgh and… oh yeah, a Glastonbury headline slot that promises to be one of the most ferocious gigs they’ve ever played.

We asked NME readers what tracks you’re gagging to hear the band play live and you came back to us with a sweet selection of old classics, acoustic loveliness and awesome covers. Here are some of your best suggestions – and we finish up with a dream setlist made up of all your ideas. If you’re reading Dave Grohl, pay close attention.
