Foo Fighters to perform at The BRIT Awards 2018

It'll be the first time that the band have ever played at the awards ceremony, with this year's bash taking place on February 21

Foo Fighters have been confirmed as a live performer at The BRIT Awards 2018.

The Dave Grohl-led band, who are four-time BRIT Award-winners, will play at the celebrated ceremony for the very first time next month, with this year’s awards show due to take place at The O2 in London on February 21.

The Foos join Dua Lipa, Ed Sheeran, Sam Smith and Stormzy as confirmed performers at The BRIT Awards 2018, with Grohl remarking that the UK had always been good to the band.

“How the fuck have we never played at The BRIT Awards before!?!?!” he said. “We’ve had a ton of firsts over in the UK – from our first festival (Reading ’95) to our first headlining arena tour (2002) to our first stadium tour (2008) – you guys have always been so good to us.

“Why not add 2018 Brit awards to the list??!?!? Let’s make some noise.”
