FOO Fighters have confirmed that they will be headlining the Friday night of this year’s Glastonbury Festival (2015).

The band announced the news after being named best international band at last night’s NME Awards via a video link.

Dave Grohl was unable to attend the London ceremony in person but revealed via the satellite feed: “We’re very thankful and very happy – sorry we couldn’t make it tonight, but we will be seeing you over the summer at some big outdoor festival that nobody knows we’re playing. It’s Glastonbury.

“So we’ll see you at Glastonbury – thanks a lot everybody.”

The announcement was then re-confirmed by co-organiser of the festival, Emily Eavis, who was at the awards night to pick up a prize for best festival.

She commented: “They are one of the greatest live bands on the planet, they’re just incredible. I mean Dave Grohl just ignites the field and will do something phenomenal. You so rely on those incredible live bands to take you somewhere else.”

The Glastonbury set will come on top of a series of summer gigs that Foo Fighters have previously announced, which include two nights at Wembley Stadium on June 19 and 20.

Support on that part of their world tour will come from Kaiser Chiefs.
