Besides the excitement of who won what, last night’s NME Awards 2015 brought a whole new level of pure joy in the form of Foo Fighters confirming that they WILL play this year’s Glastonbury festival.
To say we’re a teensy bit excited would be the biggest understatement of the entire year.
Bring on the mud.
Picking up the award for Best International Band, the band sent a video message in which Dave Grohl revealed the band’s awesome news.
Confirming that they would be playing the festival, Dave revealed: “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.”
No, thank YOU.
Emily Eavis, co-organiser of the incredible festival also spoke at the NME awards and sounded pretty excited about the first major act to be announced for this year’s summer extravaganza.
She said: “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 news was also confirmed on the festival’s Twitter, where they shared a photo of the front page of their infamous ‘Free Press’, which read: “FOO FIGHTERS TO HEADLINE FRIDAY!”
Emily added: “We feel incredibly lucky to have confirmed the Foo Fighters for the Pyramid Stage at Glastonbury this year.
“Very few bands have the power to unite and energise a crowd like Foo Fighters do. We can’t wait for them to rock Worthy Farm on Friday night.”
Us neither, Emily.
Foo Fighters last performed at the iconic festival back in 1998, with Dave telling NME last year that they were “overdue” a slot.
(Sort of) ask and you shall receive.
He told the magazine: “It’s an iconic festival. I just tell everyone if they need a band, we’re pretty good. They should give us a call. See what happens.”
June cannot come quick enough.
Now, where did we leave our tent?
