Tickets for the gig go on sale today (June 28). O2 Priority customers can get tickets from 12pm today, with general on-sale tickets available from 4pm at

Frontman Dave Grohl and drummer Taylor Hawkins both expressed their excitement at the gig on a message posted on Foo Fighters’ Facebook page. .

Foo Fighters last played the O2 Arena in 2007 where they were joined by guitarist Brian May and drummer Roger Talyor for a rendition of Queen’s ‘’39’.

The O2’s 10th Birthday celebrations have so far included a week-long series of shows from alt-J, Céline Dion and Ed Sheeran. Foo Fighters and Jamiroquai are set to perform later this year, with Foo Fighters playing on September 19 and Jamiroquai playing two shows December 3 and 6.
