Foo Fighters wow Glastonbury and tease their fans

26 Juin 2017

The Foo Fighters took to the Glastonbury stage this weekend, and there was a moment when the crowd of 150,000 joined in singing the band's "Best Of You" in unison, and it's bound to bring you goosebumps.

Foo Fighters have made a triumphant return to Glastonbury Festival two years after they were forced to pull out because of frontman Dave Grohl's broken leg. When a pal bumped into the rock superstar earlier this month the former Nirvana drummer sent Jon a touching handwritten note, promising that his wife would be in his thoughts at Glastonbury. "OK, I think we broke her record".

Before performing Everlong, the final song of the band's barnstorming Pyramid Stage set on Saturday, Grohl said: "I'd like to dedicate this song to someone named Laura, who couldn't be here tonight".

It didn't promise a dedication, but Foo Fighters being the friendly legends that they are, they did Jon and Laura proud.

He added: "The other day I was sitting on the plane and this flight attendant came up to me and she says 'You're never going to believe this but have you heard of this woman?'"

Princess Patricia had special links with Buckingham Palace, the place of her birth on March 17 1886. Captain Couto said: 'I'm just focusing on doing my job as best I can and staying humble.

After her death, Laura's husband Jon started a campaign on Twitter and Instagram asking the Foo Fighters to dedicate "Everlong" to Laura during their headline Glastonbury set.

The US band then played a touching rendition of Everlong for Laura, who was due to watch the Foos play to celebrate her 10th wedding anniversary this year, but sadly had to call it off as she fell too ill to attend.

The request was re-posted 12 million times and caught the attention of Dave Grohl, who sent John his own message of support.

"She said 'They are friends of mine".

Jon said it was Laura's "swansong". "Now I feel I can smile for real". "The power of social media is insane, but incredible". After Laura was diagnosed with cancer, she raised more than £70,000 for CoppaFeel - a charity dedicated to breast cancer awareness.
