It seems as though Foo Fighters might be about to make up for their cancelled Glastonbury headline slot in 2015. That appearance was understandably cancelled due to front-man Dave Grohl breaking his leg after falling off stage in Gothenburg. Many fans expected the group’s cancelled headline appearance at the festival to be re-booked the following year but as Glastonbury 2016 came and went, the band gave no signs of intending to reschedule their appearance.
Now though, it seems fans may just get that long awaited opportunity to see Foo Fighters at the world famous festival. The band mailed out ambiguous airline style tickets to certain fans, featuring a cryptic new version of their logo, which sees the symbol encased in a pyramid. This has naturally sparked much excitement among fans, as it seems to more or less confirm – albeit indirectly – that the band will be appearing of Glastonbury’s famous Pyramid stage. Glastonbury 2017 is due to take place from 21 – 25 June with Radiohead already confirmed as headliners.

Foo Fighters last played Glastonbury over a decade ago, in 2005, so regular attendees of the show are long overdue another appearance from the multi-million selling act. Whilst it does seem likely that the band will be appearing at Glastonbury, it’s anything but a certainty at this point. The mysterious tickets mailed out to fans raise just as many questions as they answer. The airport of departure is listed as Los Angeles LAX, with the destination – rather bafflingly – Cagliari Elmas Airport in Sardinia. Whilst the logo in a Pyramid certainly hints at a Glastonbury appearance, the tickets could really signify anything.
The band’s website has been updated to show a full list of live dates the band will be performing this year – intriguingly, though, the first one on the list is a scrambled mess of letters, completely indecipherable; suggesting that, at the very least, the band will be performing one more date yet to be announced, even if it’s not yet known where.
