Foo Fighters Tribute Band to Play for Disappointed Fans

When the Foo Fighters announced that all their European tour dates had to be scrapped because of the massive injury frontman┬áDave Grohl suffered during the band’s show in Sweden, there was a collective sound of hearts breaking.

In an attempt to make those fans feel a little better, UK Foo Fighters, a Foo Fighters tribute band, has announced they will be performing two shows for those brokenhearted people.

The tribute band announced the news via a tweet that they will be performing at a venue near Wembley Stadium in London during the same two days the iconic group were set to perform; Friday (June 19) and Saturday (June 20).

“It’s an absolute honour to confirm we will be playing Wembley this Friday and Saturday evening for fans from all over the world who have travelled to London this weekend, and for Dave and Foo Fighters, who we know are gutted not to be playing,” the band wrote on the social media platform.

Tickets for the real show are being refunded, but for those still wanting to get a taste of the Foo Fighters, entry to the shows will be done through charity donations with all proceeds going directly to Given to Live, a United Kingdom charity.

While the tribute version of the Foo Fighters will be taking ┬áthe stage this upcoming weekend, the status of when the real Foo Fighters will be returning to the stage is unknown. Grohl’s doctors had advised the frontman┬áthat he needed to stay off his injured for a while, but so far, it appears their United States tour is still on.

All Time Low to Headline Wembley Arena

All Time Low are one of the biggest bands to come out of the pop-punk music scene, so it comes as a surprise that the four piece band have never headlined an arena before though, amphitheaters and Warped Tours are the norm.

Now, it looks like things have changed because the band have announced that they will be headlining their first ever arena show.

The Baltimore-based band announced that big news would be coming on Monday (today) to their loyal (and vicious) fans, the Hustlers. At the time, the band had just posted up a picture of a face with an “x” below it, colored in with a Union Jack. This led to assume whatever the big news was, would be directed towards their fan base across the pond in England.

Today, the news was made public that they would be hitting the stage at the iconic Wembley Arena on March 20, 2015.

The show has been titled, “One Night in London with All Time Low” which will also double as filming of footage for the band’s new live DVD.

Not to shabby for a couple of “East coast kids with a record deal.”
