Foo Fighters 'definitely not breaking up'
Band's representative denies the band will be calling it quits
On Saturday (September 30), during the band's epic set at the massive Global Citizen Festival in New York's Central Park, Grohl told the 60,000 crowd in attendance that "this is it".
However, a spokesperson for the band told MTV, in no uncertain terms, that that Foo Fighters are "definitely not breaking up".
Before playing 'Learn To Fly', the group's fourth song of the night, 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."
Fans immediately wondered if this was really their last ever show as, at the end of a blistering set packed with crowd-pleasing anthems such as 'My Hero', 'Times Like These', 'All My Life' and 'Best Of You' and set-closer 'Everlong', Grohl told the audience: "I don't know when, but we'll see you again."
Previously, at this year's Reading Festival, Grohl told the crowd that the band were playing their "last show for a long time", as they headlined the final night of the festival.
