Foo Fighters are to play at a festival in Scotland next year.

The band are the second headliners to be unveiled for Glasgow Summer Sessions 2019.

They join The Cure, who are making a return to Scotland after 27 years.

With their outstanding back catalogue, this is bound to be an unmissable show Geoff Ellis

Geoff Ellis, chief executive of organisers DF Concerts, said: “To welcome Foo Fighters to Bellahouston Park for the first time is so exciting for music fans all over Scotland, as they are, to this day, one of the best festival headliners in the world.

“With their outstanding back catalogue, this is bound to be an unmissable show.

“This announcement, as well as the previous reveal that legendary band The Cure will make their return to Scottish soil after 27 years on Friday August 16, truly cements Glasgow Summer Sessions as an integral part of the Scottish live music calendar for 2019.

“With more to come, fans should stay tuned for the full line-up.”

Foo Fighters will be ending a four-year absence from Scotland’s live scene when they take to the festival’s stage on Saturday August 17.

Glasgow Summer Sessions, now in its seventh year, is part of the Summer Sessions series which this year added the new Edinburgh Summer Sessions festival.

It saw artists including Sir Tom Jones, Kasabian, Paloma Faith and more perform against the backdrop of Edinburgh Castle.

Tickets go on sale on Friday.
