Foo Fighters Confirmed As Glastonbury 2017 Headliners
After an announcement of a world tour, its has been confirmed that US rock band Foo Fighters will headline this year’s Glastonbury Festival. The band has been strongly rumoured for months, and the group announced their headline slot at an intimate gig in Somerset last night. Festival organisers Emily and Michael Eavis were of course present.
The festival already announced Radiohead as the Friday night headliner at the end of last year, and festival-goers have been awaiting a second announcement. Foo Fighters were supposed to headline the festival back in 2015, but after frontman Dave Grohl broke his leg during a performance on the band’s tour they cancelled the slot and they were replaced by Florence and the Machine.
The third and final headliner is expected to be pop sensation Ed Sheeran, but this has not yet been confirmed. The rest of Glastonbury’s lineup is expected to be announced in the next couple of months.
