Watch Florence + the Machine Cover Foo Fighters at Glastonbury
Foo Fighters had to cancel their headlining set during the first day of the Glastonbury Festival due to Dave Grohl's broken leg, but their replacements, Florence + the Machine, did their best to appease disappointed fans and pay tribute to Grohl. They performed a chill-inducing cover of "Times Like These," from the Foo Fighters' 2002 album, One by One.
Hyper-charismatic frontwoman Florence Welch prefaced the song with a touching introduction. “We’d like to dedicate this next song to the legend and all around incredible human being Dave Grohl," she said. "He was so incredibly kind and supportive to us when we were first starting out, and we were so sad to hear he broke his leg.”
The band then played an epic, brass-tinged version of the song that surely would've made Grohl proud. Check out footage of the cover below via the BBC. Of course, there are rumors that Foo Fighters are already booked to headline Glastonbury next year.
