Foo Fighters to headline Glastonbury fest
LONDON - Agence France-Presse
AFP photoFoo Fighters will be one of the headliners at Glastonbury this year, they revealed on Feb. 24 while playing a secret gig not far from the legendary British festival.
The U.S. alternative rock kings had to cancel an appearance in 2015 after frontman Dave Grohl broke his leg, but will now play Worthy Farm on Saturday, June 24. Organizers of the sold-out festival had already announced that Radiohead would headline the Pyramid Stage on the Friday night. The announcement came at a secret Foo Fighters gig at the Cheese and Grain, a modest venue in Frome, in Somerset in southwest England, which was broadcast live online.
In a video beforehand, the band was pictured sitting on the structure of a stage in a field, chatting to Glastonbury organizers Emily and Michael Eavis.
“This is the main Pyramid Stage, the world famous stage, that you’re headlining on,” said Michael Eavis.
