The band were nominated for the Best International Group prize at the ceremony tonight (February 21), which they went on to win. Also nominated were Haim, Arcade Fire, The Killers, and LCD Soundsystem.
For their debut performance at the BRITs, the American rock titans played on top of a house constructed on the stage at London’s The O2. From there, the Dave Grohl-led band played ‘The Sky Is A Neighbourhood’, taken from their latest album ‘Concrete And Gold’. Watch footage of the performance below.
While collecting their Best International Group trophy from Tottenham Hotspurs striker Harry Kane and pop star Camila Cabello, Grohl said: “Thank you very much for this award. This means a lot to us because we’ve been coming to the UK for 20-some years now. We’ve always considered this place a second home.
“You’ve been the best audience in the world. You taught us how to be a band, so thank you very much for this award.”
