Foo Fighters Frontman Dave Grohl Downplays Reports of Band Hiatus

Even though the U.K. may be thousands of miles away, it really is a small world when the Internet gets involved. And that is something that Dave Grohl is realizing firsthand this week after making comments Sunday to the Reading Festival crowd that it would be the last time they would see the Foo Fighters for a long while.

Grohl told the audience, “You guys realize we’ve got a lot of songs to play. It’s the last show of the tour and it’s the last show for a long time.” Even though the Foo Fighters still have several U.S. dates ahead, the remark had fans buzzing about a potential hiatus for the group.

However, after seeing enough commentary on the band’s social networking about his comments, Grohl headed to the Foos’ Twitter account to respond:



The group still has a handful of shows planned in the coming month. The Foos recently announced their participation in a Rock the Vote event Sept. 5 at the Democratic National Convention in Charlotte, and will also perform at Atlanta’s Music Midtown Sept. 21 and Pensacola Beach, Fla.’s DeLuna Fest Sept. 22. They’ll end their string of U.S. dates with a Sept. 29 free show as part of the Global Festival in New York’s Central Park.

While that may seem a little sparse, the tour portion of the band’s website states, “We are coming for you, too. More shows being added here soon.”
