“Ladies and gentlemen, would you please welcome … me!” – Dave Grohl
Blurring the lines between simple tribute band and authentic, fan-powered, fresh experience, the UK Foo Fighters have announced their biggest UK tour yet for Autumn/Winter 2017. The band are also currently the subject of a BBC documentary timed to coincide with Foo Fighter’s upcoming Glastonbury headline performance.
Not many tribute bands get invited on stage to perform with their heroes, and NEVER with one of the biggest rock bands in the world. UK Foo Fighters frontman Jay Apperley made history in September 2014 at Brighton’s Concorde 2 when he was personally asked on stage by none other than Dave Grohl himself to perform ‘White Limo’ with the actual Foo Fighters.
Fans of the UK version have known for years, of course, that rarely has a tribute been performed with such obvious love and passion for the music. Their hugely successful UK tour ‘Sonic Motorways’ – a name cleverly derived from the title of the Foo’s recent album, saw them sell out shows in London, Glasgow, Birmingham, Manchester and many more as fans flocked in their thousands to see them. Piling through hit after hit, the band perform set lists containing classics such as ‘Everlong’ and ‘Best of You’ alongside brand new material. See them live at the following tour dates –
