Foo Fighters Announce First Irish Show in Four Years

Foo Fighters

Rock legends Foo Fighters have announced they will play their first Irish shows in four years next Summer.

The four-piece, led by former Nirvana drummer Dave Grohl, will play at Boucher Road in Belfast on the 19th of August, before a date at the RDS Arena in Dublin two days later on August 21st.

These will be their first Irish shows since they headlined Slane Castle in 2015.


Dave Grohl, Taylor Hawkins, Nate Mendel, Chris Shiflett, Pat Smear and Rami Jaffee continue to sell out stadiums and arenas the world over.

The band’s current live show, described by Rolling Stone as “explosive and euphoric… wild and combustible at the place where Grohl’s love for punk and classic rock coalesce into something raging and tuneful… a show of enthusiasm that has grown over decades,” will be visiting the following cities and venues:

  • 19 June Pula, Croatia @ Pula Arena
  • 25 June Horsens, Denmark @ Faengslet
  • 27 June Bergen, Norway @ Koengen Fortress
  • 19 Aug Belfast, N. Ireland @ Vital Festival
  • 21 Aug Dublin, Ireland @ RDS Arena

Having covered ground from Reykjavik to Las Vegas in 2017, the Foo Fighters began 2018 with an Australia/New Zealand stadium tour, and proceeded to play three-hour-plus rock marathons for capacity crowds over multiple nights at some of the world’s most prestigious venues: Madison Square Garden, Fenway Park in Boston, Wrigley Field in Chicago, London Stadium—plus a return to Ullevi Stadium in Gothenburg— the site of the accident that led to the 2015 Broken Leg Tour.

Support on the headline dates to be announced. See for information regarding pre-sales and more.

Tickets go on sale this Friday November 23rd at 10am.
