The band, fronted by former Nirvana star Dave Grohl, will play the Summer Sessions for the first time on Saturday, August 17 and fans might even hear new material - as they just released a new three-track live EP on streaming sites. 

The Summer Sessions show will be a welcome return for the rockers who haven't played on Scottish soil in four years.

Geoff Ellis, CEO of DF Concerts, previously said: “To welcome Foo Fighters to Bellahouston Park for the first time is so exciting for music fans all over Scotland, as they are, to this day, one of the best festival headliners in the world. With their outstanding back catalogue, this is bound to be an unmissable show."

So here is everything you need to know about the band's upcoming show.
