Foo Fighters to return to UK for three shows in September

The gigs will take place at Milton Keynes Bowl and Edinburgh's Murrayfield Stadium

Foo Fighters have announced that they’ll return to the UK in September following the cancellation of their recent arena shows and Glastonbury headline slot.

The US band were forced to scrap their European tour in June when Dave Grohl sustained a broken leg at a gig in Sweden.

Now they’ve confirmed that they’ll play two shows at Milton Keynes Bowl on September 5 and 6. Iggy Pop will support the band at the gigs.

They will also play Edinburgh’s Murrayfield Stadium on September 8. Royal Blood will open for that show.

A statement from the band reads: “You have always stood by our band, and we will always stand by you. Like I say at every show, we wouldn’t be here if it weren’t for you guys. And I mean that. I thank you from the bottom of my heart. And I will do everything I can to come back and give you a night to remember for the rest of your lives as soon as possible.”

Fans who had tickets for the Wembley Stadium shows will be offered the option of tickets to the Milton Keynes show before the tickets go on sale to the public. Tickets go on general sale on Friday (July 17), with pre-sale starting on (July 15).

Foo Fighters will play:

Milton Keynes Bowl (September 5, 6)
Edinburgh Murrayfield Stadium (8)

Meanwhile, Foo Fighters were forced to scrap their show on Saturday night (July 11) in Quebec City due to bad weather.

A storm hit shortly after Foo Fighters’ front-of-stage curtain was unveiled, strong winds and battering rain threatening to whip it away before the band’s gear was revealed.

The band performed only four songs in total: ‘Everlong’ ‘Monkey Wrench’, ‘Learn to Fly’ and ‘Something From Nothing’.

Foo Fighters later took to Twitter to apologise to fans for the show’s cancellation. They wrote: “Quebec City, we’ll be back…Mother Nature always wins”.
