As UK Foo Fighters embarked on their 10th Anniversary Tour, they found themselves at the centre of a BBC documentary celebrating Tribute in homage to Glastonbury’s 2017 headliners, Foo Fighters.

Another milestone in a long list of epic achievements, placing them firmly amongst tribute’s elite to arguably one of the biggest rock bands of the last two decades.

Featured in Classic Rock, Rolling Stone, Kerrang, NME, Q, MOJO and Planet Rock magazines.  UK Foo Fighters’ meteoric rise continues in 2018 with their ‘Banging on the Ceiling Tour’, a name inspired by Foo Fighters 9th studio album ‘Concrete and Gold’.

Piling through hit after hit, the band performs set lists containing all the classics - such as ‘Everlong’ and ‘Best of You’ alongside brand new material from the Foo’s new album ‘Concrete and Gold’ including ‘Run’, ‘The Sky is a Neighborhood’ and ‘La Dee Da’.


They absolutely nail the true vibe of a Foo’s live experience, all performed down to the closest detail making it a truly unmissable show for any Foo Fighters fan.

Billy Bragg - One Step Forward, Two Steps Back Tour

One Step Forward, Two Steps Back Tour

Monday 11th November

Academy 2

Billy Bragg, is an English musician known for his blend of folk, punk-rock, and protest music.

He has been active for over thirty years since his early career as a regular contributor to anarchic U.K. live rock show The Tube. His music is a combination of poetry and political comment, with a dash of romance. He has collaborated with many other musicians, including Johnny Marr of The Smiths, protest folk singer Leon Rosselson, R.E.M., Less Than Jake, Kirsty MacColl, Kate Nash, Milburn, and Wilco. He obtained a top-twenty hit with the song “We Laughed” in a band called The Rosetta Life band (with Bragg, Helena, Robbie McIntosh, Ady Milward, and Chris Lonergan). It was a cancer-based charity song written by Bragg and Maxine Edgington. Bragg was influenced by his brief experience in the British Army as a trooper in the Queen’s Royal Irish Hussars of the Royal Armoured Corps. He, along with Paul Weller and others, was a leading member of UK left-wing musicians’ pressure group Red Wedge in the Thatcher-dominated 1980s.

In recent years he has broadened his audience thanks to his involvement with Wilco on the album Mermaid Avenue and its follow-up Mermaid Avenue Vol. II.
