Foo Fighters have announced Frank Carter & The Rattlesnakes and Hot Milk as special guests for their Belfast and Dublin gigs this summer.

The dates at Belfast's Boucher Road Playing Fields on August 19 and Dublin's RDS Arena on August 21 will be the band's first Irish shows since they headlined Slane Castle in 2015.

They announced their highly-anticipated return to Ireland last November.

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 Dublin gig are priced from €79.50 including booking fee and are on sale now via Ticketmaster.

2017 saw the release of the band's ninth studio album Concrete and Gold.
