Foo Fighters – Dave Grohl, Taylor Hawkins, Nate Mendel, Chris Shiflett, Pat Smear – will headline a massive gig at Slane Castle on Saturday 30th May. Special guests are Kaiser Chiefs and amazing Irish singer/songwriter Hozier. Tickets go on sale at 9am Monday 1st December from Ticketmaster. The band sold 300,000 tickets in the UK last Friday, which include 160,000 tickets across two sold out shows at Wembley Stadium.
Their unmissable new album ‘Sonic Highways’, was written and recorded one song in each of these eight cities: Austin, Chicago, Los Angeles, Nashville, New Orleans, New York, Seattle, and Washington D.C. Each song features local legends sitting in, with every lyric written in an unprecedented experimental style. Including Gary Clark Jr. (Austin), The Eagles’ Joe Walsh (Los Angeles), Cheap Trick’s Rick Nielsen (Chicago), Death Cab For Cutie’s Ben Gibbard (Seattle), Joan Jett (New York City) and New Orleans Preservation Hall Jazz Band (New Orleans).‘Sonic Highways’ is the band’s most ambitious album they ever made and shares its title with the Dave Grohl-directed wonderful eight-episode HBO series, which is described by Dave as “A love letter to the history of American music”.
The eight-part docuseries is available for purchase direct from the band HERE.
