Sorry festival goers and Foo-fans alike, Foo Fighters will not be playing at the Isle of Wight Festival after turning down a headlining slot. The idea that Foo Fighters should play was actually a fan’s who sent the idea via twitter to festival organiser John Giddings saying: “@JohnGiddings01 you have to get @foofighters to headline next year!! Especially after their amazing new song and with an album out soon!!“.
Giddings replied to the excited fan with the sad news that they had said no and that they are not interested. As well as no festivals lined up for the band, they have also not confirmed any live dates for the UK either. Lets just hope they don’t do a Beatles and stop performing live altogether! Foo Fighter’s new album is set for release on November 10 and their latest single “Something from Nothing” is already available.
In other Isle of Wight news, earlier this week, John Giddings dubbed performer Ed Sheeran as “boring” after a discussion about headliners. Sheeran responded to this via Twitter saying that Giddings had asked him a few weeks ago about a headline spot but had to turn it down due to other gigs. So Giddings isn’t doing too well with the festival so far, but fingers crossed he finds someone good soon!
