Foo Fighters, the Dave Grohl-led rock band, is to take over the running of a London pub for a long weekend as part of the launch of its latest album.

The Foo Fighters Arms will be operating from tomorrow until 20 September to coincide with the release of the US rock band’s new album Concrete and Gold, which launches on Friday.

Fans will be able to pick up exclusive merchandise and limited edition items at the usually called Dundee Arms on 339 Cambridge Heath Road, which is run by the London Ordinares group, including the band’s very own beer.

There will also be special events planned over the course of the pub takeover.

Announcing the news on the pub’s website foofightersarms.com, Grohl said: “Foo Fighters are proud to announce the opening of the Foo Fighters Arms in London for one week only. Doors will open to the public on 15 September to celebrate the release of their new album Concrete and Gold and will host a series of events for both fans and the general public.”
