Foo Fighters Announce Glastonbury Headlining Gig With FB Live Show

After having to pull out of their Glastonbury headlining role in 2015 due to Dave Grohl’s broken leg, the Foo Fighters announced in grand fashion today that they will be headlining the famed U.K festival in 2017.

Their Facebook Live video started with a brief “skit” of the band at the Glastonbury festival site but confused at the fact that no one was there.  Glastonbury founder Michael Eavis notified the band they were a bit early, but there was a small venue nearby where they could play.

So, the band ended up taking the stage at Cheese & Grain, a 500-person capacity venue in Frome, Somerset, England and were introduce by Eavis who confirmed the Foos would be headlining the Pyramid Stage Sunday, June 25, the final night of Glastonbury which is taking place June 21-25.

So far, the rest of the Glastonbury lineup has yet to be announced, with the exception of Radiohead who will be headlining the Pyramid Stage on Friday, June 23.
