Default Foo Fighters to headline NME Big Gig @ Wembley Arena

Foo Fighters will headline the NME Big Gig at London's Wembley Arena on February 25.

Cee Lo Green, Band Of Horses and No Age are also on the bill for the event.

Tickets go on sale at 9am (GMT) on Wednesday (January 19). To check the availability of NME Big Gig tickets and get all the latest listings, go to NME.COM/TICKETS now, or call 0871 230 1094.

The gig is set to take place two days after the Shockwaves NME Awards ceremony, where Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl will pick up the NME Godlike Genius award for 2011. Everyone who buys a ticket to the Wembley gig will get a free Dave Grohl 'Godlike Genius' magazine worth £4.99, available to pick up at the show.

"There's nothing better than seeing that person with that instrument doing it right there in front of you," Grohl said, looking ahead to the performance, where the band are expected to preview songs from their forthcoming new album. "It's the fuckin' Foo Fighters! It's the only way you're really gonna get it."

Get the new issue of NME, on UK newsstands and available digitally from Wednesday (19), for more from Grohl and the other acts on the bill.

so with 4 bands on how many songs will you get...? I reckon no more than about 5.

So it will be 1 or 2 new songs (1 of which will be the single) and then My Hero, Best of you, All my life and Everlong.

This is the running times for the equivalent show 2 years ago:

White Lies - 6:50pm (GMT)
Crystal Castles - 7:35pm (GMT)
Franz Ferdinand - 8:25pm (GMT)
The Cure - 9:30pm (GMT)

Looking at this, Cure did a full set.

Obviously, no guarantee that this will be the same for Foos, but would have thought not too dissimilar.
