Foo Fighters Take 'Long Break'
Dave Grohl has announced that the band may not return to the UK for 10 years!
Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl has announced that the band plan to take a long hiatus and that they may not return to the UK for up to a decade!
In the past the band are well known for playing behemoth British gigs. In 2006 they played London's Hyde Park, in 2007 they joined Madonna and the Red Hot Chili Peppers at Live Earth, and this June they played two sold-out concerts at Wembley stadium.
"After doing Wembley, we shouldn't come back there for, like, 10 years," Grohl said to BBC 6 Music this week. "We're over there every year, every summer, and I think it's time to take a break and come back when people really miss us."
In the same interview Grohl commented on the success of a band which originally started as one of his side projects, "It's a funny place being in the band now because we've been a band for about 14 years," Grohl said. "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."
"We've never really taken a long break," he said. "I think it's time."
