Foo Fighters To Bring Concrete And Gold To UK Stadiums

American rockers Foo Fighters have announced a trio of huge UK stadium shows in Manchester and London to bring latest record Concrete and Gold to our shores following the release of the group’s ninth studio album last month, which had the six-piece drop by the UK to open an East London pub for a week, play a massive O2 Arena show as well as help Jools Holland celebrate 25 years of his Later… programme with a special show at London’s Royal Albert Hall. This comes after Dave Grohl’s men finally made it back to headline Glastonbury Festival’s Pyramid Stage...

Foo Fighters Declare That The Sky Is A Neighborhood

Attention all Foo Fighters fans! The band have released  The Sky Is a Neighborhood, the second single from their upcoming Concrete And Gold album. Following the previously released Run, this brand new music is everything Foo Fighters fans could want: soul-touching verses and their signature loud, almost dark, heart-bombing choruses. For the accompanying video, Dave Grohl has once again put himself both in front and behind the camera, to craft one of the group’s best videos ever. Featuring two of his daughters, Harper and Violet, The Sky Is A Neighborhood sees Dave, Pat, Tay, Chris, Nate, and Rami on top of a...

Feature: Taking A Family To Glastonbury Festival

While Glastonbury Festival 2016 might not have had the torrential downpours and rivers of mud the festival makes the headlines for, the festival site was certainly waterlogged leaving the festival one of the muddiest in memory. Everywhere was damp and there were very distinct types of mud, from the soothing diarrhoea-consistency mud that made it quite easy to float through, the heavy sticky stuff that was the new home to many a welly alongside the massive puddles of mud that were best to steer clear of altogether. And as my then six-month pregnant wife re-inserted her foot into a...

Live: Foo Fighters @ Glastonbury Festival 2017

American stadium rockers Foo Fighters were finally confirmed for that historic first Pyramid Stage headline slot at Glastonbury Festival 2015, closing out Friday night, with Kanye West taking Saturday night and legends The Who closing the stage on Sunday. And then the unthinkable happened. Just weeks before that career-defining headline slot, frontman Dave Grohl took a misstep on stage while the group played a massive show in Gothenburg, Sweden and broke his leg. While Grohl returned to the Ullevi Stadium stage to continue the show, albeit sat in a chair, the rest of the group’s summer shows including that...

Live: Glastonbury Festival 2017

Glastonbury 2017: Heat Wave, Sausages and A Musical Feast Someone recently asked me for my top camping at a festival tips, I sent her my top ten, however after then spending five days at Glastonbury I have whittled it down to one … Have the right shoes. What an amazing festival Glastonbury is, from the moment you arrive in beautiful Somerset and get lost among the country lanes looking for the farm, to the moment you trudge back to your car wondering where the weekend went it, is an overwhelming array of sensory delights, but there is a cost....

Photography: Saturday @ Glastonbury Festival 2017

Having trekked around large areas of the Glastonbury Festival site on Friday, I still had barely scratched the surface, but a full day of music across the many stages still beckoned including the massive, long-awaited Pyramid Stage headline slot from American rockers Foo Fighters who had to pull out of their 2015 appearance due to frontman Dave Grohl breaking his leg at a show a few weeks beforehand. But also added to the bill on both the Pyramid and Leftfield stages was Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn. But for early risers like me, it was choosing which layers to pack...

Rock Show: Foo Fighters To Play O2 10th Birthday Show

Following a massive Pyramid Stage headline show at Glastonbury Festival on Saturday, Foo Fighters, who thank the UK for making them the band they are with frontman Dave Grohl stating that this is where they cut their teeth, show no signs of slowing down. With the rest of festival season still ahead of them, huge shows in Madrid at Mad Cool Festival and Poland’s Open’er still to come, The Foos have announced a massive one-off show on September 19th at East London’s O2 Arena as part of the venue’s 10th birthday celebrations, which kicked off last week with a...

Live: Chris Shiflett @ The Water Rats

Chris Shiflett grew up in Santa Barbara, California. His childhood idols were Kiss. He first gained attention as a member of punk band No Use For A Name. And for almost two decades he’s been the Foo Fighters’ lead guitarist. Yet, over the past five years, the musician with such bonafide rock credentials has been beating a path down to Nashville (the city not the TV show) on three solo albums. The latest, West Coast Town, is his most authentic yet. Recorded in the city’s legendary RCA Studio A with Chris Stapleton’s producer Dave Cobb, its classic country sound is...

Interview: Chris Shiflett, Honky-Tonk Foo Fighter

Chris Shiflett is probably known to most as the superstar guitar player with American stadium rockers Foo Fighters. But the axe man has been pursuing his own solo career for a number of years now, putting out Country and Americana-influenced records. Ahead of kicking off a summer of madness, hitting up the festival circuit with Foo Fighters, Shiflett took the time out for some tiny London acoustic shows to showcase his other side as well as sitting down with RockShot Music Magazine to chat about his adventures into Country, being a busy dad and his new record West Coast...

Vision: Foo Fighters, Run

Surprise! American stadium rockers Foo Fighters have just gone and dropped new single Run just weeks before the rock troupe headline the Pyramid stage at Glastonbury Festival! An ageless melodic hard rock anthem that showcases everything that’s made Foo Fighters an unstoppable road and radio conquering machine, Run is the first new Foo Fighters music since the band gifted fans with the free Saint Cecilia EP in late 2015. Run is accompanied by a time-traveling mind-warp of a video in the group’s often-comedic style directed by the band’s own Dave Grohl, in which the song’s dive-bombing verses and soaring choruses are matched...

Festival: Glastonbury 2017, Start Planning Those Clashes!

For those lucky enough to bag tickets to this year’s pre-furlough year Glastonbury Festival, there was a ticking clock until the end of May, when the majority of stage times are usually released each year. So while we may all have known the big and small names that would be appearing, deciding exactly who to see on each day begins now. And boy are there some major clashes! Those familiar with the festival site will appreciate just how large-scale it is. Boasting over 100 stages, it takes a good while to travel between them and find a spot to watch...

Feature: A Year On The Road Touring With UK Foo Fighters

Some people look at the passing or upcoming year through the change of seasons, birthdays and paydays. And there are some who are looking at it through the windows of trains, buses, vans and the change a city might bring, going about its daily business. There are people who plan their time around scheduled dates, venues and concerts.  This might be musicians and photographers. And no matter that this life is not all roses (there are definitely ups and downs)  I wouldn’t trade it for anything else. So who am I? I am a  freelance music photographer, I need a sea of...

Festival: Glastonbury 2017 – Times Like These

American rockers Foo Fighters have just gone and (finally) announced their upcoming headline slot for Glastonbury 2017! Originally billed to headline the 2015 festival’s Friday night, the five-piece were forced to pull out following frontman Dave Grohl’s unfortunate accident at Sweden’s Ullevi festival in Gothenburg, where the nicest man in rock fell off stage during the band’s second song, breaking his right leg, only to return to the stage with the leg in plaster to complete his set. Florence + The Machine were subsequently bumped to Glastonbury headliners and the rest is history. We always knew the Best Of...
