The Foo Fighters Look Set for Long Hiatus

The Foo Fighters Look Set for Long Hiatus - 

The Foo Fighters look set to be heading into hibernation after Dave Grohl announced the news this past Saturday (Sep.30) after performing at New York's Global Citizen Festival in Central Park, reports NME.

This isn't the first time Grohl has alluded to a possible hiatus period for the Foos and in August he had UK fans scratching their heads at the 2012 Reading & Leeds Festivals after announcing "last show for a long time", as the band headlined the final night of the festival.

However, his revelation this past weekend undoubtedly cements the fact that the band will be taking an indefinite time out.

Prior to the group performing 'Learn To Fly,' which was only the band's fourth song of their set, Grohl said, "Without making a big deal out of it, we don't have any shows after this. This is it, man. Honestly I don't know when we're gonna do it again…and this is the perfect place to do it." After then ripping into fan favourites such as 'My Hero', 'Times Like These', 'All My Life', 'Best of You' and 'Everlong', Grohl told the audience, "I don't know when, but we'll see you again."

Anyone lucky enough to gain entry to the free event in NY were also privileged to witness Grohl and Dan Auerbach of The Black Keys joined fellow headliners Neil Young & Crazy Horse for an extended version of 'Rockin' In The Free World.'
