Foos ready for National Bowl

Foo Fighters

Foo Fighters return to The National Bowl in Milton Keynes next week for two shows, four years after they previously headlined the venue.

The rock giants announced the gigs after they were forced to cancel their Wembley Stadium date in June after front man Dave Grohl fractured his leg when falling from a stage in Sweden.

They head to the Milton Keynes venue on Saturday, September 5 and Sunday, September 6.

Extra tickets for the Saturday night went on sale last week after production holds were released.

Anyone looking to pick up a ticket for the opening night is limited to one purchase of a maximum of four tickets.

All are general admission only.

Tickets are still available for the band’s gig on the Sunday night.

Iggy Pop will support the Foos at both shows with additional special guests due to be announced in the run up.

Grohl is joined in Foo Fighters by former Nirvana guitarist Pat Smear, bassist Nate Mendel, drummer Taylor Hawkins and guitarist Chris Shiflett.

The band released their eighth studio album, Sonic Highways, last year.

The album was recorded in eight different cities across the United States with musicians from each location contributing to tracks.

An accompanying DVD featuring interviews and the recording process in each city is available now.

Sonic Highways followed 2011’s Wasting Light, which saw the band joined by guests including Krist Novoselic.

Tickets for next week’s gig are available via www.gigsandtours.com, www.seetickets.com, www.ticketmaster.co.uk, www.ticketline.co.uk, www.theticketfactory.com, www.axs.com/uk, www.gigantic.com and www.stargreen.com

They cost £71.50 which includes a service charge.

Car parking passes are also available for £15.
