Foo Fighters Reportedly Already Booked to Headline Next Year’s Glastonbury Festival
When Dave Grohlbroke his leg at a concert in Sweden a few weeks ago, it put a monkey wrench in a lot of their plans – the band had to cancel all of their U.K. and European tour dates including a headlining spot at this month's Glastonbury festival in England. But Glastonbury organizers don't want to lose out on Foo Fighters altogether and they've already reportedly booked Growl and the gang as headliners of next year's installment.
A source told the Sun (via NME), "Dave was beyond gutted about pulling out of Glastonbury, especially at such short notice. But [organizer] Michael [Eavis] was quick to book him for next year as he's desperate for the Foos to headline. He knows they'll go down a storm at Glasto. Dave agreed within seconds."
Of course, there are also rumors fans won't have to wait that long: the band might make a secret appearance at this weekend's festival and play a "chilled out" acoustic set.
In the midst of tragedy, there has been a slew of good news for Foo Fighters fans recently: Although the band had to cancel a bunch of tour dates, but are still scheduled to begin touring the U.S. on July 4. They've also announced ambitious plans for their upcoming recorded output, saying they might only make concept albums from here on out.
