Foo Fighters Announce O2 10th Birthday Show
Foo Fighters announce O2 10th Birthday Show amid rumours that Adele is set to appear on forthcoming LP 'Concrete and Gold'
After a lit Glastonbury set, Dave Grohl and Taylor Hawkins have announced a one-off show scheduled for September 19th from a YouTube video message.
The pair exclaimed their excitement, recalling their last gig at the venue when Queen’s Brian May and Roger Taylor joined them for ‘39’ in 2007.
In participation with the O2's 10th birthday events, Foo Fighters will take the stage to help celebrate on the 19th September 2017.
A-List celebrities like Celine Dion and Ed Sheeran have already played at the 20,000 capacity arena for the 10th birthday shows and will be closing the celebration Jamiroquai later in December.
The announcement comes after word of the new LP ‘Concrete and Gold’ which will be released September 15th. The album is described as “a mix of hard rock extremes and pop sensibilities” and comes alongside another exciting declaration to BBC 1, that the “biggest pop star in the world” will be backing vocals for the “heaviest” track on the album.
Rumour has it; the pop star could be Adele. However, the suspense builds as Grohl refuses to confirm or deny this gossip.
Producing will be Greg Kurstin, who has worked alongside Adele before playing instruments and producing ‘Hello’, Adele’s record-breaking 2016 single.
The American rock band originated when Nirvana drummer, Grohl, created a cassette with an album worth of tracks and distributed it to friends, naming it Foo Fighters in an effort to conceal his identity. This cassette later received record label interest and the one-man band was created, with the other members later being recruited.
The group's last studio album Sonic Highways was released in 2014 and was less successful in consideration of the other albums, selling just 490,000 copies in the US compared to Foo Fighters, One by One and In Your Honour which sold in excess of a million copies each.
