The band are giving their UK fans ample time to get into physical and emotional shape for six marathon evenings of rock n roll communion confirmed for next year.

Dubbed the 'Everything or Nothing at All UK Tour', six monumental stadium dates will take place at Villa Park in Birmingham, on June 27, 2024, as well as dates in Manchester, Glasgow, London, and Cardiff, starting on June 13.

Tickets will go on sale to the general public from Friday, at 9am.

The 2024 dates will mark Foo Fighters’ most extensive UK trek since the June 2 release of their unanimously acclaimed eleventh album, But Here We Are, which smashed into the UK charts at number 1 - the sixth Foo Fighters album to do so - while generating some of the most positive critical notes of the band’s career.

The Foos were due to visit the UK last year, but those concerts were cancelled following the death of drummer Taylor Hawkins. However, during their appearance on the Pyramid Stage at Worthy Farm on Friday, Grohl teased a UK tour which was confirmed this morning.

Villa Park is no stranger to huge music acts, having hosted P!nk and Bruce Springsteen earlier this month.

Where and when will Foo Fighters be playing?

The six-piece group will be playing six shows around the UK next June with Birmingham hosting the last of those gigs. The dates and locations are:

Emirates Old Trafford (cricket ground), Manchester - Thursday, June 13
