Tuesday 6pm – that came and went pretty quickly, with ‘that’ expected Foo Fighters / Glastonbury announcement failing to materialise. Then came notification of a reveal of some sort on Friday evening, and now all remains clear. Foo Fighters have confirmed an intimate gig at Frome’s Cheese And Grain venue tomorrow night (24th February), an event which may have seemingly been revealed by hardcore Glastonbury fans piecing two-and-two together following multiple clues over the past week (including the Foo Fighters Passport ‘CAG’ destination).
An invite has now been sent randomly to what’s assumed to be those on the Foo Fighters’ mailing list (presumably cross-referenced with lucky Glastonbury ticket-holders). Emily Eavis coincidentally is a patron of Cheese And Grain.
It’s widely likely that the Foos will choose the Cheese And Grain show to finally announce their headline set at this summer’s Glastonbury.
Earlier today, Cheese and Grain said in a statement: “We have a strictly private event at the Cheese and Grain this Friday 24th February. There will be no tickets available at all to anyone who has not already been invited. Please do not come to the venue as we are unable to assist with any admission requests and we will be closed to the public all day.”
UPDATE: Here’s a sneak-peek of the Foos soundchecking:
