Dave Grohl is looking forward to "making up" for missing Glastonbury 2015.

The Foo Fighters frontman and the Learn To Fly rockers were set to headline the festival two years ago, when Grohl broke his leg and was forced to cancel their slot on the Pyramid Stage.

Now, Speaking to Radio X's Gordon Smart, the rocker vowed: “We’re a little bit late on that gig, but I’m looking forward to making up for it”.

Talking about the moment he broke his leg in Sweden, the Times Like These singer recalled: “At first I thought I’d be able to do it. 

"When I broke my leg I jumped back up on stage, within 10 minutes and I finished that show and then came down to London and had surgery in London and thought: ‘Well, maybe if I just sit down I’ll be able to do the show', and after the surgery there was just no way man.

He added: “It was the most pain I’ve ever felt in my entire life and I was in a wheelchair for a couple weeks. you know."
