A second headliner has been announced for next August’s Glasgow Summer Sessions series - Foo Fighters.

The band, who have also been confirmed to headline next year’s Reading & Leeds this morning, will play Bellahouston Park on 17th August.

Dave Grohl and pals join The Cure, who’ll be performing their first gig north of the border in 27 years on 16th August.

Summer Sessions boss Geoff Ellis says: “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 16th August, 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!”

Tickets are on sale from 9am on Friday 23rd November.
