If they sign up to Sonishphere I'd say unlikely.

Isn't that just a rumour at the moment too?

I'd be bloody happy if it were true, so close to home and with there being two stages you can set up camp ready for the foos whilst other people mill around seeing other bands rather than them standing there getting pissed
(i went one day this year and people were much better behaved than some of the lunatics at MK)

would be happy if they did leeds as that would mean reading as well and I was going to go next year.

Would sonisphere be the kind of thing the foo's would do though as it seems kinda similar to download.

It is a rumour but quite a strong one that seems to be gathering pace. Plus the band have never played a gig at Knebworth so it might be right up their street.

It does seem to be floating around on a lot of grape vines and I did try and think of places they havent played

foo-fighter666 - Sonisphere started off more metal but this year the saturday was more "commercial" with biffy clyro headlining and bands like weezer, you me at six, sum 41 on the bill too

so if it continues down that route then foo fighters would fit into it

Perhaps if they do a couple of festival gigs here next year, there might be a chance of another of their own headlining show or two But please, not MK again, & dare I say maybe some arena dates?

I think it was the Foos and RHCP who were being signed up to Sonisphere. The festival tours Europe as a festival brand so they might do a few dates out there too under the Sonisphere banner. I hear the organisers are prepared to pay big bucks to get big names - Maiden, Metallica etc.

I don't think an arena tour is out of the question either though, hopefully around February time?

It's plausible they'd do both, they are opposite ends of the summer.
I suppose they did do IOW, TiTP and Oxygen all in uk this year so maybe theyd do sonisphere and reading/leeds instead?!

I think once you are "contracted" to Sonisphere you can't headline any other big festivals through the same year.

Unless Foo's say we will do Sonisphere/reading & Leeds if you let us do what we want, otherwise they may say no.

The guy who runs Sonisphere said he wants Foo Fighters and Red Hot Chili Peppers headlining it next year (I could dig that) and that is probably where the rumour started.

But who knows - maybe they'll do both?

My Chemical Romance, The Strokes and Pulp are all headliners at Reading and Leeds and have appeared lower down the bills at T in the Park this summer, and I think all 3 have appeared lower down at other UK Festivals (Muse aren't included in this list because Reading and Leeds are there only European shows outside Russia and Ukraine this year). In the case of the first 3 maybe its appear but can't headline.
