Foo Fighters To Headline Invictus Games

(Classic Rock) The Foo Fighters have finally confirmed the date of their return to the UK - they'll headline the closing concert of the Invictus Games in London's Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park on September 14.

The armed forces event is sponsored by Jaguar Land Rover and endorsed by Prince Harry. The aim is to "use the power of sport to inspire recovery, support rehabilitation and generate a wider understanding and respect of those who serve their country."

Foos drummer Taylor Hawkins recently hinted the band were planning a trip to the UK when he told TeamRock: "I'm going to have me a good curry this summer at some point - do you know what I mean?"

Now mainman Dave Grohl says: "What a perfect way to finally return to the UK for the first time in years. It's been way too long! Thanks for having us - it's truly an honor to play for these incredible men and women. Can't wait to do our thing for you." more on this story
