Foo Fighters not asked about Glastonbury

Dave Grohl insists Foo Fighters have not yet been asked to perform at Glastonbury, despite being favourites to do so.

9th 'Rock En Seine' Music Festival - Foofighters performing live

The ‘Walk’ rockers are favourites to headline the world-famous music event next summer after organiser Emily Eavis admitted she would “love” to have them perform, but the singer claims he hasn’t received a call yet.

He said: “She hasn’t called – I have not gotten the call yet. The Foo Fighters haven’t been there since 1998, so er… and that’s a fun festival.”

While they may not be confirmed for the festival, which takes place at Worthy Farm in Somerset, South West England from June 24-28, they will be in the UK shortly before as they have just announced new tour dates for May and June next year.

The ‘Learn to Fly’ hitmakers kick off their run of shows at Sunderland’s Stadium of Light on May 25, before heading to Manchester’s Emirates Old Trafford on May 27, Wembley Stadium in London on June 19 and 20 and Murrayfield Stadium in Edinburgh on June 23.

Iggy Pop and Royal Blood will support on selected tour dates still to be confirmed.

Tickets go on pre-sale November 19 and on general sale at 10am on November 21.
