Will there be more?
Someone in our group chat noticed that Rock am Ring have said on Facebook it's Foo Fighters only European headline shows in 2023....
it does say 'Exclusive European Headline Shows'
Taken from the events facebook page & website
"It's an event: The Foo Fighters are playing exclusively at Rock on the Ring and Rock in the Park! The two festival appearances will be the only European headline shows by the American multi-platinum rock band 2023."
UK isn’t in Europe anymore tho so you never know!
ARGH! Ignore my total idiocy here 😎
UK is still in Europe mate. Just not the EU.
doh! Sorry - I’m having a stressful work day and totally misread my own reply 🤪
ha ha, no worries buddy. I'm stressed aswell checking flights UK to Germany :)
Next time 🤷♂️
Nah it's always UK and Europe for tours! There is still hope...... I'm sure they can find somewhere to play a UK gig, they managed to arrange Geelong in 2 weeks so no excuse! Even when there was another event scheduled to be on....😂
The Rock In fests are huge.... I remember watching the livestream for 18 and thinking holy moly!
If the Germany shows are the only things they do this side of the pond then they must be getting paid pretty handsomely!
They replaced Pantera who got dropped by the festival due to other bands refusing to play with them. I suspect Rock am Ring felt they had to go big with their replacement
I'm hoping it was a case of the band playing again and looking for opportunity on festivals. still have fingers crossed they will announce a handful of stadium shows across the US, SA and UK to slot around the festival dates. it would make sense as the US dates so seem vert random so far. infact all the dates are dotted around :).
Note the wording... only headline shows.
So you're telling me there's a chance? 😂
So if Foos are bottom of the bill in tiny writing we're all good then?! 😂
A secret set at Download or Glastonbury wouldn't be out of the question. Download could be a great precursor to them headlining 2024 - Andy Copping has been trying to book them for years.
Download is the weekend after Germany so that could work. Glasto is late June and IOW is mid-June so I couldn't see them hanging around for those.
I'd rather they played a secret stand alone Foo show preferably at Concorde 2 again!
I've bought tickets for the Rock AM Ring on the Friday. CANNOT WAIT! I had tickets for Switzerland last which was cancelled as always wanted to see them in Europe.
Also got Shifty tickets at Leeds so today is quite the expense but so excited :)
Its nice to be looking forward to a Foos gig again.
Quite my thinking 🤔
The wording speaks for itself 😂😂
Bloody tempted by Germany now the day tickets have been released....... frick! 😶
Yeah I considered working the box office so I could pop to one of the headline slots… but might be a bit insane 😂
Still hoping for something in the UK this year 😐️
It's that German ''european exclusive'' thats making me think it aint happening. Hopefully proven wrong! :D
Might’ve carried over from the Pantera thing right?
or might be a European festival exclusive but doesn’t rule out a tour by a different promoter?
I feel like in the events business - there’s always a loophole if a band wanna do a show - they just might not announce until the festival has finished…
