Stage times, support acts and more: Everything you need to know as Foo Fighters hit London

Here's everything you need to know...

Foo Fighters will hit London this weekend for two massive shows.

The rock giants are gearing up to appear in the capital on Friday and Saturday night, after a triumphant show in Manchester earlier this week.

But while London fans can expect a similarly epic showing, it’s worth keeping an eye on the key details of the night – including stadium opening times, stage times and support act details. Here’s what you need to know.

Where are Foo Fighters playing?


The Foos hit the London Stadium tonight and tomorrow.

For the uninitiated, that’s the former Olympic stadium located in Stratford.

The closest tube stations include Stratford, Stratford International and Pudding Mill Lane on the Docklands Light Railway.

What time does the London Stadium open?

The London Stadium island opens at 3PM, giving fans the chance to buy a variety of food and drink options.

There’s also a wide selection of merchandise on offer too.


The actual stadium opens at 4PM, so you’ll be able to take your seats or secure a good standing spot at this point.

Who is supporting the Foo Fighters, and what are the stage times?

Foo Fighters’ Dave Grohl and Wolf Alice’s Ellie Rowswell

So far, the stage times are only known for Friday night, although there’s impressive support acts for both shows.

Frank Carter & The Rattlesnakes will kick off proceedings at 5.30PM, before they’re followed by Wolf Alice at 6.25PM.

The Foos are set to arrive at 8PM, with a 10.30PM curfew.

If the majority of Foos shows are anything to go by, you can expect a solid 2.5 hour set.

Tomorrow’s support acts include Slaves, The Kills and Starcrawler.

What about the Foos pop-up shop within the Olympic Park?

If you arrive especially early, it’s well worth taking a trip to the pop-up shop dedicated to the Foos for this weekend only.

It’s selling an impressive range of Foo Fighters memorabilia – as well as a series of Foos themed snacks too.

The shop is within The Last Drop – the cafe located directly in front of the Arcelor-Mittal Orbit.

Are there any tickets left?

There’s still some tickets left across the two dates – beginning at £47 each.
