Foo Fighters add UK support acts

Foo Fighters have added God Damn and Honeyblood to their list of support acts for the UK tour that kicks off later this month.

They join previously-announced guests Iggy Pop, Royal Blood, Ash, Kaiser Chiefs, Teenage Fanclub and Hozier, with various lineups appearing across the run of six stadium shows.

Dave Grohl and co start their run with an appearance at BBC Radio 1’s Big Weekend in Norwich, and end it with a set at this year’s Glastonbury festival.

It’s part of a wider Foos European tour in support of eighth album Sonic Highways, which was accompanied by an eight-part documentary series of the same name.

Grohl was ambassador for last month’s Record Store Day, and led the charge with an intimate Foos show for 150 fans in an Ohio store. The band this week released a video of the event.
