Foo Fighters announce they will play Slane 2015

US rockers Foo Fighters will headline Slane Castle next year.

The Best Of You singers are taking over the Castle on May 30th 2015, following the success of last summers Eminem gig.

Speaking to Rick O’Shea on 2FM a short while ago, lead singer Dave Grohl made the surprise announcement.

“I am allowed to say I do know we are coming to Slane Castle May 30th 2015,” he said.

“We didn’t know this was going to happen. We didn’t even know if there was going to be a 2015,” he said.

The Foo Fighters previously played Slane in 2003, alongside the Red Hot Chilli Peppers.

We've got a feeling this will be a multiple device, 'refresh, refresh, refresh' suituation.
