Will the Foo Fighters Concrete & Gold tour extend into 2018? Find out the latest news and speculation.
Born out of legendary band Nirvana, Dave Grohl created his rock band the Foo Fighters featuring, Nate Mendel, Pat Smear, Taylor Hawkins, Chris Shiflett and Rami Jaffee, and their first single was released in 1995.
Over the years the Foo Fighters have changed shape, whether it’s members of the band or recording style, they have consistently released fantastic hits that define rock music today.
David Grohl had initially planned to take a year off music after the Foo Fighters’ 2015 tour ended, notably including the performance where Dave Grohl broke his leg whilst on stage in Sweden. However, whilst in an Airbnb in Ojai, California, Grohl felt inspired to write the Foo Fighters 9th studio album “Concrete and Gold.”
When Grohl was asked the new Foo Fighters Concrete and Gold album is about he said “I was inspired by what was going on with our country – politically, personally, as a father, an American and a musician. There was a lot to write about.”
The Foo Fighters upcoming album Concrete & Gold contains appearances by the Kills’, Allison Mossart and Boyz II Men’s Shawn Stockman who emulates a 30-person choir. Dave Grohl told the press that Concrete & Gold features “the biggest pop star in the world” but has confirmed neither Taylor Swift or Adele sang on the record. Speculation continues it could be Shania Twain on the upcoming album.
Concrete & Gold will be released on 15th September 2017. The Foo Fighters have released the first single from Concrete & Gold entitled ‘Run’ which has been highly praised.
Imagine the chance to see the Foo Fighters perform their new material live in 2018! The Foo Fighters Concrete & Gold tour in 2018 is set to be their biggest one yet and we want to make sure you don’t miss out!

It’s expected the Foo Fighters will announce a stadium tour across the UK and Europe to debut Concrete & Gold fully. Given their widespread popularity, the Foo Fighters tour would likely bring them to London’s Wembley Stadium, Manchester’s Etihad Stadium, Dublin’s Croke Park, Edinburgh Murrayfield Stadium and Glasgow’s Hampden Park.
The Foo Fighters played at Wembley Stadium back in 2008 to an incredible 86,000 eager fans. In 2015, The Foo Fighters were forced to cancel shows at Wembley Stadium and Murrayfield Stadium so could 2018 be the year for them to make a comeback?
Given Dave Grohl’s work with both Queen of the Stone Age and Led Zeppelin’s John Paul Jones in the band “Them Crooked Vultures”, will either of these groups join the Foo Fighters on stage in 2018? That would surely be an unforgettable performance.
Foo Fighters headlined at Glastonbury in June where they performed what was an unmissable two-hour set taking fans on a journey of their biggest hits and best moments. On stage, David Grohl apologised for being “two years late” blaming traffic so make sure you don’t miss them when they are back.
