Foo Fighters Cancel Glastonbury Headline Slot

So the Foo Fighters have announced that due to Dave Grohl’s recent injury (he broke his leg jumping off stage) they will have to, amongst other dates in Wembley and Murrayfield, cancel their headline slot at this year’s Glastonbury Festival. *Cough, Kurt Cobain came out in a wheelchair for Reading festival in 1992 Cough*.

Grohl said “It kills me to say it [but] the doctors have told us to cancel shows. I’m really so sorry, guys. You know I hate to do it, but I’m afraid it’s just not physically possible for me at the moment. We’re doing our best right now to work out a plan, so bear with us. You know we’re good for our word. But for now, I need to make sure we have years of gigs ahead of us.”

Now, we know it’s the morning so you’re probably already struggling to stifle the yawns of boredom but with the new slot now open we were wondering which other snoozey band could straddle the middle of the road for Eavis & Co.?

Our selections are:

Coldplay
U2
Mumford & Sons  

So if you are gearing up for an amazing weekend of music in Somerset you will still probably find it but just steer clear of the main stage.
