Yeah I mean it's all but confirmed at this stage. They're touring European festivals, it's guaranteed they will play something in the UK, the dates fit, they cancelled two years ago etc etc.

I was planning on doing a vacation of going to the Poland/Denmark/Belgium/Spain/Portugal gigs and my friend texted me "Foo Fighters are doing Glastonbury? Fuck just go to that" this morning like he had just seen some sort of headline about it

I also saw a tweet from @foofightersnews with a now gone NME article saying it was confirmed around the same time. Can't find either the tweet or article anymore....

I have no real info on what else hasn't been announced or whatever but there looks to be a little more room for passport stamps

It's a real shame Glastonbury Festival is already sold out, it would be lovely for a different UK show (as well as Glastonbury) for Foo fans to get a chance to see the band.

I'm sure if you keep reading carefully you'll get some leeds about more UK gigs that they might play.

surely that is a bit too late, especially if they are only around for a month or so.

BST has got another weekend going, they could arguably be there - however it seems unlikely as would then have them playing 3 nights in a row..

I actually thought they'd play a couple of UK shows as well as Glastonbury, but I guess it is easier to just play festivals rather than having to set up/take down a stage when not in "full touring" mode.

You'd think that there might be a few club shows where they don't need a stage set up, and use what's available, eg Brighton etc, that might be the only option.

Though it would be great if the did Glastonbury and Reading, I'm not sure any band has headlined both of those festivals in the same year.

To be clear, I have no idea if they're doing that shit......I just wouldn't be surprised if they did.

I don't know if I'd expect much stateside until there's a record to promote. This seems like a "line up the coffers so they can go to work" type deal

..which leads to the speculation of what's the work they're gonna get into?

A 8-date Euro festival tour (excluding possible UK dates) is big bucks for a band this size. As making a record is virtually free if they like as far as studio time goes I'm thinking they're funding something bigger again.

Sonic Highways 2 maybe?

Some parts of Europe are colorized.

I wonder if that could that be a clue, or just something artsy-fartsy to make the page appealing.

PS- I also noticed the illustration has another "page" behind the page that says "17" at the bottom. My guess is more tour dates will be added.

I jokingly asked Dave if the next move was recording an album in outer space about a year a half ago, his laugh may have been dismissive but I couldn't help but notice he didn't say "No, Tim. We are not recording our next album in outer space"

Looks like 2017 will be more than just Euro festivals. Here we go...

Noooo! Really hope not. Can't see them coming over to do some stuff in Europe and not possibly go to the UK. *fingers crossed*
