Foo Fighters have allegedly already been booked to headline next year’s Glastonbury Festival, according to reports.
The band, who were set to headline the pyramid stage tomorrow night (26th June), were forced to cancel several shows – including two nights at Wembley Stadium – after frontman Dave Grohl broke his leg while jumping off stage at a show in Sweden.
The band have since been replaced by Florence + The Machine, who were already booked to perform in the slot just before Foo Fighters.
The festival’s chief organiser, Emily Eavis stated after news of the band’s cancelation broke, that she would “love” for the Foo Fighters to headline the event in the future. However, The Sun is now reporting that the legendary rock band will be headlining the festival in 2016, following Eavis’ claim that the main three headliners for Glastonbury 2016 have already been booked.
A source told the newspaper that “Dave was beyond gutted about pulling out of Glastonbury, especially at such short notice. But Michael [Eavis] was quick to book him for next year as he’s desperate for the Foos to headline. He knows they’ll go down a storm at Glasto. Dave agreed within seconds.”
Dave Grohl posted an emotional statement on the band’s website stating his sadness of having to cancel the show.
