See any of these play live?

It takes a special kind of act to headline Glastonbury, and Foo Fighters certainly have enough bangers in their repertoire to justify their spot on the UK’s biggest festival (no matter what anyone says).

The Foo Fighters’ performance at Glastonbury in June of this year was voted the “BBC Music Live Performance Of The Year 2017” and the band have thanked all their fans in the UK because as Dave Grohl said: “we cut our teeth as a live band here (UK.)”You guys really taught us how to become a band that can headline a gig like Glastonbury so thank you very much.”

Of course, the Foo Fighters performance at Glastonbury was extra-special because two years ago, they were forced to pull out when frontman Dave Grohl broke his leg.

As fans of the band will know, you can see if the Foo Fighters can hold onto their crown when they play the Etihad Stadium and London Stadium. 


Elsewhere, Stormzy has been named artist of the year and the south London MC can add that accolade to his ever-growing list of awards that includes three Mobos and a Q Award for the best solo artist.

Stormzy’s superb debut album, Gang Signs & Prayer, was the first grime record to reach number one.

Rag N Bone Man collected album of the year for his debut album Human, which is the year’s biggest-selling debut. Declan McKenna picked up the award for BBC Music Introducing Artist Of The Year.
