Foo Fighters confirm Glasto headline in best way: At a tiny secret gig in small Somerset town

Foo Fighters broke the news that they'd be headlining at Glastonbury Festival 2017 in the best way possible: at a tiny secret gig in a bar in Frome, Somerset.

At the 500-capacity non-for-profit venue Cheese and Grain, Grohl and co blew away an unsuspecting crowd.

Following the Friday show, Grohl posted a handwritten note on Facebook which reads: "Just wanted to write and say thank you to all involved tonight because I’m still buzzing from our first gig in one year, three months and 10 days.

“Shaking off the dust for the sweet people of Frome was the best way to dive into another year… and many more surprises. Stay tuned."

Glastonbury organiser Emily Eavis said: “We’re incredibly lucky to have the Foo Fighters headlining on the Saturday night this year. It was obviously devastating when they had to pull out in 2015 – and the thought, effort and generosity they’ve put into this announcement is just unbelievable.”

 

They join Radiohead in headlining the iconic event.
