Foo Fighters Take Hiatus

Band To Go On Holiday

Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl has claimed in an interview that the band will take a long break following their recent massive shows in London’s Wembley Stadium.

Foo Fighters recently played two sold out dates at the famous venue, being joined by Led Zeppelin’s Jimmy Page and John Paul Jones for the finale of the second show. Formed after the death of Nirvana singer Kurt Cobain, Foo Fighters have been lead by Dave Grohl on a decade long chart conquering adventure.

In a recent interview with BBC Radio 1 Grohl told the station that he now intended to take a step back. “After doing Wembley we shouldn’t come back there for 10 years because we’ve played to everybody,” he said.

“It’s a funny place being in the band now because we’ve been a band for about 14 years. We’ve gone from playing the Astoria, to playing Earls Court to playing Wembley. That wasn’t really the goal but hey, we’ll take it.”

A DVD of the concert is forthcoming, and will feature Jimmy Page and John Paul Jones jamming with Foo Fighters on the Led Zeppelin classics “Ramble On” and “Rock and Roll”.
