Foo Fighters have been announced as the latest act to perform at next month’s BRIT Awards.
Confirmed moments ago, the four-time BRIT winners will make their debut on 21st February, alongside previously-announced performers Ed Sheeran, Sam Smith, Stormzy and Dua Lipa.
Of the news, BRITs Chairman & CEO and Chairman of Sony Music UK & Ireland Jason Iley said: “Anyone who was lucky enough to witness one of their shows on the recent sold out UK tour, or their set at Glastonbury – which was undoubtedly one of the best performances the festival has ever seen and a night that will be talked about forever – will know why Foo Fighters are the biggest and most exciting rock band in the world. Quite remarkably they have never performed at The BRITs, so I am over the moon to confirm a massive BRITs exclusive to have them grace our stage.”
The group’s appointment also comes six months since the release of their acclaimed ninth studio album Concrete and Gold – the BRITs nominations show this Saturday (13th January) will also reveal whether the project is in line for the Best Album gong for 2018.
