Foo Fighters join The Cure as headliners of Glasgow Summer Sessions 2019

The Foos will play the Scottish festival on August 17

Foo Fighters have been announced as the second headliner of the 2019 Glasgow Summer Sessions.

The Dave Grohl-led band join The Cure in topping the bill at next year’s festival, with the latter having been announced as a headliner last month.

The Foos will make their debut Glasgow Summer Sessions performance with a headline slot on Saturday August 17. It’ll be their first gig in Scotland for four years, with the band set to play at the festival’s big venue in Glasgow’s Bellahouston Park. Support acts for the Foos have yet to be announced.


Speaking about the booking, CEO of DF Concerts Geoff Ellis said: “To welcome Foo Fighters to Bellahouston Park for the first time is so exciting for music fans all over Scotland, as they are, to this day, one of the best festival headliners in the world. With their outstanding back catalogue, this is bound to be an unmissable show.

“This announcement, as well as the previous reveal that legendary band The Cure will make their return to Scottish soil after 27 years on Friday 16th August, truly cements Glasgow Summer Sessions as an integral part of the Scottish live music calendar for 2019.

“With more to come, fans should stay tuned for the full line-up!”

Tickets for Glasgow Summer Sessions are priced at £59.50 plus booking fee per gig (£95 + BF for VIP tickets), and they’ll go on sale on Friday (November 23) at 9am from here.


This is the second festival announcement involving the Foos today, after the band were named as one of the four headliners at Reading & Leeds 2019.
