Foo Fighters To Headline Glastonbury Festival
. (Classic Rock) Foo Fighters will headline the main stage at Glastonbury this summer. Dave Grohl announced the news in a video acceptance speech at tonight's NME Awards. The Foos were named Best International Band, with the prize presented by Chrissie Hynde.
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. AC/DC and Iron Maiden were among the favorites to land a headline slot at Glasto this year following Metallica's triumph. Read more here.
