The rock band is slated to return to the VMAs stage for the first time in 15 years.
Foo Fighters will be presented with the first-ever global icon award at the 2021 MTV Video Music Awards airing live on Sept. 12. Besides receiving the award, the rock band is slated to return to the VMAs stage for the first time in 15 years.
Foo Fighters debuted on the VMA stage in 1997 for a pre-show performance of "Monkey Wrench" and "Everlong," a pair of songs from their sophomore album, The Colour and the Shape.
The icons are set to join a lineup that includes first-time VMA performers Olivia Rodrigo and Machine Gun Kelly. Other scheduled performers include Lorde, Lil Nas X and Camila Cabello, all of whom have performed on the show in the past.
