Glastonbury 2017: Are Foo Fighters about to play secret gig?


The band had always been rumoured to headline Worthy Farm this year, especially since they were forced to pull out of their 2015 headline slot when frontman Dave Grohl broke his leg. The band has just announced plans to play at Glastonbury.

Foo Fighters' most recent album 'Sonic Highways' landed in 2015.

The announcement has been trailed for several days and arrived accompanied by a secret show at the Cheese and Grain in Frome, Somerset, which was streamed on Periscope.

During a surprise show in Somerset, England, Foo Fighters announced they will be one of the headliners at this year's Glastonbury festival.

'Weather bomb', worst storm in years, hits California
The storm packing winds of up to 80 miles per hour began early Friday, quickly turning parking garages into waterfalls. Rain will change to snow between 6-8 thousand feet, and several feet may pile up in the highest terrain .

They were replaced on the bill by Florence + the Machine - while Grohl subsequently spent the next few months performing from a giant throne.

Selected fans have been sent invites from 'Obelisk Airlines' to an event at Frome's Cheese And Grain community centre, starting at 6pm.

Today's secret show - which wasn't so secret - seems to be the beginning of a new period of activity for the publicity-loving band. "They've certainly put it on the map now", Eavis added.

Speaking about a possible Glastonbury headline slot in 2017, Foos drummer Taylor Hawkins told NME last year: "It was a bummer when we had to pull out the other year".
