Foo Fighters 2017

Find out where Dave Grohl and co. are headed this week.

Foo Fighters are set to play an intimate gig at Metro Chicago on Friday 4 August.

The Learn To Fly rockers announced the news last night (1 August), and tickets for the "parperless" and "non-transferrable" event have already sold out.

Meanwhile, the band also appear to have hinted they'll appear at Lollapalooza, which takes place in the same city that weekend. 

While Foo Fighters' gig on Friday will no doubt delight their Chicago fans, the biggest surprise the band pulled off this year was their secret gig in Frome where they confirmed they were headlining Glastonbury festival.

Watch the moment Michael Eavis confirmed the news that they would be headlining the Saturday night (24 June) on the Pyramid Stage.

The rockers put on a huge flight-themed show, with Michael Eavis saying: "Be there or be square," before the band came on and opened with - you guessed it - Learn To Fly. 

Watch them perform My Hero below:

When the band did come to play Glastonbury, they didn't disappoint, paying tribute to late fan, Laura Plane, who sadly lost her battle with breast cancer.
