The 80,000-capacity show will take place on May 30, with support coming from Kaiser Chiefs and Hozier. Tickets go on general sale at 9am on Monday (December 1).
The gig is in addition to a previously announced UK tour, which will see the band perform a string of dates in support of new album ‘Sonic Highways’, including two shows at Wembley Stadium.
Support at these shows will come from Iggy Pop and Royal Blood.
Foo Fighters play:
Sunderland Stadium Of Light (May 25, 2015)
Manchester Emirates Old Trafford (27)
Ireland Slane Castle (30)
London Wembley Stadium (June 19, 20)
Edinburgh Murrayfield Stadium (23)
Foo Fighters released ‘Sonic Highways’ earlier this month, but lost out on the UK Number One spot to Pink Floyd.
Speaking about the placing, Grohl was ambivalent about not reaching the top spot. “I mean if we’re going to take a Number Two to anybody, I’ll take it to Pink Floyd, you know what I mean?” he began. “I mean, at this point you have to imagine we’re not really that concerned about that sorta thing ’cos we got what we got and it’s really great, we get to make records and then we go out and play big shows, then go home and come back and do it all again so I don’t have too many complaints in life. It could be a lot fucking worse.”
