Foo Fighters confirm God Damn as Manchester support
20 May 2015
Rock duo God Damn will support Foo Fighters during their Manchester stadium gig alongside Teenage Fanclub.
The two-piece will open for the Foos during their show at Manchester’s Emirates Old Trafford Stadium on 27 May.
God Damn – who are Thom and Ash – have been earning support following the release of their debut album Vultures. The pair will now join the Scottish group Teenage Fanclub and open for the Foo Fighters in Manchester.
Foo Fighter’s concert is part of a wider UK and Ireland tour, which gets underway on 25 May at Sunderland’s Stadium of Light. The tour will continue to London’s Wembley Stadium, Edinburgh’s Murrayfield Stadium and Dublin’s Slane Castle.
Along with God Damn, Foo Fighters have lined up some incredible support for the tour. Kaiser Chiefs, Hozier, Iggy Pop and Royal Blood will open for the Dave Grohl led band.
The tour is in support of Foo Fighters eighth studio album. The collection was recorded in eight different states around the US and includes Something From Nothing and Congregation.
Meanwhile, Foo Fighters have been warming up for their stadium tour playing a number of live dates. They recently surprised fans in California by performing a set full of rock classics under the name Chevy Metal.
