All eyes were on Glastonbury this weekend as Worthy Farm hosted headline slots from third-timers Arctic Monkeys and last-timer Elton John, but many held the most anticipation for a band called ‘The Churnups’… who turned out to be the legendary Foo Fighters. Following their surprise set, the band has announced a huge UK leg of their Everything or Nothing at All tour for 2024, and Foo Fighters will be rocking London twice on June 20 and June 22 at the London Stadium
With stadium-fillers such as All My Life, My Hero and Everlong, Foo Fighters belong on the biggest stages in the world, bringing 2000s rock to audiences of all ages. Frontman Dave Grohl has proved himself to be the sweetheart of rock, and an adoptee of British culture, not least by the fact he led the band onto a Great Western train to reach the legendary festival.
The 2024 tour of UK stadiums, hitting London, Manchester, Cardiff, Birmingham and Glasgow, will be the first since the band lost beloved drummer Taylor Hawkins just last year after suffering a heart attack, and Foo Fighters are sure to keep his memory alive during the tour as they have been doing ever since. Their Glastonbury set concluded with emotional anthem Everlong, which was dedicated to Hawkins, and his memory is never far from the band’s performances.
The London Stadium, AKA the ground of West Ham United (and former Olympic Stadium), seems the perfect place to start proceedings, with an 80,000 concert capacity, and will see the band perform on both June 20 and June 22, 2024. As usual, Foo Fighters are in good company in London.
Supporting the rockers in London on the first night are Isle Of Wight duo Wet Leg and London post punk collective Shame. Night two will see Austrilain singer-songwriter Courtney Barnett and Scottish Indie solo project Honeyblood hit the stage before Grohl and co.
