Foo Fighters Announce 2020 European Shows

Dave Grohl and the gang are crossing the pond this summer – with The Pretty Reckless, Yungblud and more in tow.

Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl has already promised that some seriously crazy shit” will be happening this year, and the rock titans are keeping that promise by announcing several huge shows in Europe this summer.

The band will be joined by some very special select guests at the newly-announced dates, having confirmed that The Pretty Reckless will be supporting them in Germany, L7 will be joining them in France, and Yungblud will be performing before they hit the stage in Spain.

The post came after comments from Foos drummer Taylor Hawkins, who told Kerrang! last year that Dave was plotting a big 2020 – with potential plans to mark the 25th anniversary of the band’s self-titled debut, too. 

There’s a lot of talk, and I think Dave is already mapping out what he wants the next record to be, so I wouldn’t be surprised if there’s something coming down the pipe,” he said. I can’t 100 per cent spell it out for you for sure, because I’m always the last to know and I don’t want to give it away. But I would imagine there will be something made of the 25th year of the Foo Fighters, for sure. You know us, we never stop.”
