Foo Fighters To Play With Nickelback


Festival d’été de Québec (The Quebec City Summer Festival) have revealed their complete lineup for their 2015 event. The Rolling Stones, along with Foo Fighters will be headlining this year’s edition of the festival. Controversial cock-rockers Nickelback are slated to perform. This should also mark the first time in music history that Nickelback and the Foo Fighters have performed together. The event runs 11 days between July 9th and 19th throughout venues in downtown Québec City.

Other notable acts include The Doobie Brothers, Deep Purple, Boston and Royal Blood. You can view the full lineup above.

In other Foo Fighters news, “There might be a season two [of Foo Fighters: Sonic Highways],” Dave Grohl said in a recent interview with Billboard. “There are a lot of studios.” What might be included in this next run? Grohl suggested drummer Taylor Hawkins is the person to answer that. “Taylor is one to ask about the U.K. studios, he’s been to them all, even if they’re kabob shops now. He’ll show up and be like, ‘You guys know that they fucking recorded Queen’s The Game in here, right?’”

“If we went to somewhere like Abbey Road it’d be fun to interview someone like Paul McCartney or George Martin, that’d be kind of cool,” Grohl said. “Or go to say, Berlin, and interview someone like David Bowie or Iggy [Pop].”

“Perhaps we could go to Melbourne wherever they made all those AC/DC records and interview George Young,” Shiflett suggested. “Or you could go to Manchester and interview the Happy Mondays, guys,” Grohl added.

Foo Fighters are set to release Songs From The Laundry Room on Record Store Day as a 10 inch vinyl. Side A will feature Dave Grohl’s early demos of “Alone + Easy Target” and “Big Me.” A cover of “Kids In America” and the previously unheard “Empty Handed” will appear on Side B.

    Poor headline is poor. Not a surprise from the guy that said “Kongos, Cage the Elephant, and Royal Blood are saving Rock n Roll”

  • Ben Dawson-Punshon

    Yep, and they were on the bill together for a show in 2008. I believe it was in Australia, but I could be wrong.

    I hope Scott Stapp becomes the new lead singer for The Rolling Stones when Jagger passes
