Foo Fighters will play a headline set at this year’s Glastonbury Festival.
Dave Grohl revealed the news whilst accepting the Best International Band award at last night’s NME Awards.
In a recorded video message Grohl said: “Sorry we couldn’t make it tonight, but we will be seeing you over the summer at some big outdoor festival that nobody knows we’re playing – it’s Glastonbury. So we’ll see you at Glastonbury. Thanks a lot everybody.”
The Foos will play the Pyramid Stage on Friday 24th July. It will be their first appearance at Glastonbury since 1998.
Glastonbury co-organiser Emily Eavis said of the news: “We feel incredibly lucky to have confirmed the Foo Fighters for the Pyramid Stage at Glastonbury this year. Very few bands have the power to unite and energise a crowd like Foo Fighters do. We can’t wait for them to rock Worthy Farm on Friday night.”
The Foos are also set to tour the UK in May, with confirmed dates as follows:
May 25th: Sunderland Stadium Of Light
May 27th: Manchester Emirates Old Trafford
Jun 19th: London Wembley Stadium
Jun 20th: London Wembley Stadium
Jun 23rd: Edinburgh BT Murrayfield Stadium
