Foo Fighters are set to make their Glasgow Summer Sessions debut next year, joining the previously-announced The Cure. 

The band, formed by drummer Dave Grohl in 1994 following the dissolution of Nirvana, will return to Scotland after four years to take the stage at Bellahouston Park on Saturday 17 August. Having released nine albums since their formation, four of which have topped the UK charts, Foo Fighters have established themselves as one of the most prolific rock bands of their generation. 

Geoff Ellis, CEO of promoter DF Concerts said of the news: “To welcome Foo Fighters to Bellahouston Park for the first time is so exciting for music fans all over Scotland, as they are, to this day, one of the best festival headliners in the world. With their outstanding back catalogue, this is bound to be an unmissable show."

He continued, "This announcement, as well as the previous reveal that legendary band The Cure will make their return to Scottish soil after 27 years on Friday 16 August, truly cements Glasgow Summer Sessions as an integral part of the Scottish live music calendar for 2019. With more to come, fans should stay tuned for the full line-up!"
