Meanwhile, Foo Fighters recently announced their return to the UK next year for three massive stadium shows in Manchester and London.
Dave Grohl has also opened up on the unlikely friendship that Foo Fighters have forged with Rick Astley, after he joined the band onstage in Japan over the summer, before repeating the performance at their O2 Arena show in September.
‘Rick is the man!”, Grohl told NME.
“The seventh Foo Fighter. He’s such a sweetheart.I love that he gets nervous before playing. He’s Rick Astley! It’s like he’s Muhammad Ali! You just wouldn’t be nervous, but he’s such a good guy.”
Another unexpected Foos duet came in the form of Liam Gallagher, who recently joined the band onstage in California to cover ‘Come Together’ by The Beatles.
