Cee Lo Green, Band Of Horses and No Age also on the bill for the show
The gig is set to take place two days after the Shockwaves NME Awards ceremony, where Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl will pick up the NME Godlike Genius award for 2011. Everyone who buys a ticket to the Wembley gig will get a free Dave Grohl ‘Godlike Genius’ magazine worth £4.99, available to pick up at the show.
“There’s nothing better than seeing that person with that instrument doing it right there in front of you,” Grohl said, looking ahead to the performance, where the band are expected to preview songs from their forthcoming new album. “It’s the fuckin’ Foo Fighters! It’s the only way you’re really gonna get it.”
