About Foo Fighters
In 1995, Foo Fighters released their self-titled debut album that was written and produced by Nirvana drummer Dave Grohl. What happened next could not have been predicted; the band went on to become one of the most successful post-grunge rock bands of our time. Throughout the years Foo Fighters have released seven albums and have won eleven Grammy Awards, proving they are band made of up of talent, creativity and longevity.
Two years after their self-titled release, The Colour and The Shape was dropped in 1997. This was followed by There Is Nothing Left Lose (1999) and One By One (2002). By this point, the Foo Fighters had won two Grammy Awards for their 1999 and 2002 albums along with one for their music video for Learn To Fly in 2000.
Continuing their success, Foo Fighters released In Your Honor (2005), Echoes, Silence, Patience & Grace (2007) and Wasting Light (2011). Further awards followed, both for their music and for their live performances.
In 2014, Foo Fighters released their highly anticipated eighth studio album Sonic Highways. The collection was recorded in eight different iconic studios across the States. The band visited Los Angeles, Nashville, New York, Austin, Chicago, Seattle, New Orleans and Washington D.C. The album includes eight songs: one from each state.
As well as their incredible albums, the band have built a reputation of playing incredible live shows. The group have sold out stadiums in the UK, including Manchester’s Old Trafford, and have headlined the UK’s biggest festivals. Although more than comfortable in huge venues, the Foos like to mix it up with surprise gigs at smaller venues. Some of their most played songs include Everlong, Monkey Wrench and My Hero.
Foo Fighters are a favourite with crowds in the UK and tickets are always in high demand to see this incredible band fronted by Dave Grohl.
