FOO FIGHTERS
WITH SPECIAL GUESTS
TENACIOUS D
AND F**KED UP!
The Frontier Touring Company are rapt to confirm the Foo Fighters' nationwide stadium tour this summer with special guests Tenacious D will now feature additional support - in the form of hardcore punk ensemble F**KED UP.
The Canadian band have been tearing up stages all around the globe for nearly a decade and their live shows are known to explode with pure, unadulterated mayhem, as affirmed by media who have witnessed their incomparable live experience:
“It's easy to see why F**ked Up's singer, Damian "Pink Eyes" Abraham, has become as close to a superstar as a punk can without joining Green Day.” – GUARDIAN.CO.UK
“While their singer creates the spectacle, the five other players in F**ked Up are onstage showing off the band’s impressive tightness…F**ked Up have evolved from a hardcore punk band in every aspect except ethos; the band’s set is a high-mark of intensity and energy that the tiny crowd appreciate greatly.” – RAVE MAGAZINE
With their third studio album David Comes To Life (out now through Matador), F**ked up have forayed into rock opera territory and their efforts see them heavily rewarded with critical acclaim:
“Abraham still retains his scorched-earth bark. He's been finding ways to broaden his voice's impact, and it's never sounded better than it does here…David Comes to Life is absolutely worth the commitment, a convincing demonstration of what can happen when a band works without limitations.” - PITCHFORK.COM
“Is this heavy or light? Punk or pop? Such questions are immaterial; on paper F**ked Up are a mess of contradictions but their music is downright fascinating. And it sounds incredible, too…A startlingly talented punk rock band.” - NME.COM
Foo Fighters, Tenacious D and F**ked Up: This is the tour you have been waiting for and as both fans and booming ticket sales can attest... It is undoubtedly the hottest tour of the year.
Speaking of f**ked up – have you seen the new Foo Fighters teaser video? Featuring a dash of dress-up, a heated shower scene, proud moments of unabashed nudity and a whole lot of debauchery, the sizzling clip is a riotous project from the band.
