Foo News Round-Up: 2016 Glastonbury Rumors, Future Album Ideas

Because of Dave Grohl’s broken leg, the Foo Fighters had to back out of their highly anticipated headlining gig at this year’s Glastonbury festival, but it sounds like they’ll be making up for it next year.

U.K.’s The Sun (via NME) is reporting the Foos, and the two other headlining acts, are already scheduled for next year’s festival.  As for this year, Florence and the Machine, who were originally scheduled to open for Grohl & Co., are now pumped up as headlining act on Friday (June 26th.)

…In other Foo news, it looks like we can expect some sort of special theme to go along with every new Foo Fighters album from here on out.

The band spoke with NME recently, and while they remain tight-lipped over what the future holds, Taylor Hawkins revealed that Grohl  “wants the albums to have some other kind of theme or experience linked to them” and that “every record we make from now on to have some sort of concept around it.”

Hmmm…a second season of “Sonic Highways” has already been confirmed, but it’ll be interesting to see just how conceptual the band will go in the future.
