Foo Fighters Announce They’re Headlining Glastonbury During Surprise Gig

Written by Sam Murphy on February 25, 2017

Foo Fighters are the second band to be announced in the headline slot for this year’s Glastonbury festival.

The band now join Radiohead atop the bill, confirming it during a secret, intimate show in Somerset which was streamed live online.

They played a greatest hits set, also debuting ‘Sean’ from the St. Celia EP live for the first time. They also previewed two new songs ‘Keep Your Pretty Promise to Yourself’ and ‘Run With Me’.

It’s the first gig the band have played since they went on hiatus and marks their return to the live scene with a number of festival slots booked for 2017.

Rumours have long been swelling that the Dave Grohl-fronted band would headline the iconic British festival. They had to pull out in 2015 after Grohl broke his leg, leaving Florence + The Machine to step up to the plate.

Glastonbury are yet to announce the full lineup but there are a number of bands who have leaked their spot on the bill, including our very own The Avalanches.

Glastonbury will take a break in 2018.
