Dave Grohl says Foo Fighters concert in Milton Keynes will be 'really special'

Dave Grohl is excited about Milton Keynes gigs

Frontman Dave Grohl has said that the upcoming Foo Fighters tour will be "really special".

The band will be playing two gigs at the 65,000-seater National Bowl in Milton Keynes and Grohl is looking forward to playing in such a huge venue.

"I'll never forget when we played Wembley Stadium in 2008. It's quite a feeling to stand at the lip of the stage at Wembley Stadium and raise your arms up and have 80,000 people sing Everlong or Learn To Fly," he told the Sun.

"That's a huge feeling and that enormous space becomes like a chapel and everyone's connected by that one thing.

"So coming over to do Milton Keynes is going to be something really special. I can't wait."

The band will play the two shows at the venue on July 2nd on 3rd.

Biffy Clyro will support them on both dates, while Death Cab for Cutie will also be performing on the first night and Jimmy Eat World on the second.

Foo Fighters have also been working on a new album which is due for release next year.
