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."
They will play the last slot on the Pyramid Stage at Worthy Farm on Friday, July 24. It will be the band's first appearance at Glasto since 1998. Last year, Metallica were the surprise headliners and won widespread acclaim for their performance.
