Foo Fighters have confirmed details of two shows in Ireland as part of their upcoming tour next summer.

The band will headline Vital Festival at Boucher Road in Belfast on Monday August 19 and Dublin's RDS Arena two days later on Wednesday, August 21. The Foos last played Ireland in 2015 when they headlined Slane Castle.

The band's current live show has been described by Rolling Stone as "explosive and euphoric… wild and combustible at the place where Dave Grohl’s love for punk and classic rock coalesce into something raging and tuneful… a show of enthusiasm that has grown over decades".

Tickets for the shows go on sale this Friday, November 23 at 10.00am, with prices starting at €79.50.

Last year saw the release of the band's ninth studio album Concrete and Gold.
