There goes my hero: Foo Fighters, the multi-platinum, festival-headlining, stadium superstars will perform on the Brit Awards stage next month for the very first time.
The Foos will bring the rock to this year’s program, which includes previously-announced performers Ed Sheeran, Dua Lipa, Sam Smith and Stormzy. Expect the band to deliver a proper crowd-pleasing moment on the night. Dave Grohl and Co. headlined Glastonbury Festival last year, and they've landed four U.K. chart-topping albums and as many Brit Awards. But, inexplicably, they’ve never played at Britain’s annual industry gala.
The band scored another No. 1 album in the U.K. when Concrete and Gold debuted at the summit last September, following chart leaders with One by One (2002), Echoes, Silence, Patience & Grace (2007) and Wasting Light (2011). The U.S. rockers also collected Brit Awards for international album in 2008 and international group in 2008, 2012 and 2015.
