Foo Fighters dedicate ‘Everlong’ to Taylor Hawkins at ‘surprise’ Glastonbury set

Foo Fighters performed a nine song set, ending with 'Everlong.'

Foo Fighters took the stage at Glastonbury on Friday night, surprising the crowd and revealing themselves as ‘The Churnups’ - the fake band billed on the festival’s line up. 

To be fair, the ‘surprise’ set was one of the festival’s worst kept secrets, after Grohl dropped a not-so-subtle hint on social media earlier this month, causing all signs to point towards the Foos.

Confirming the speculation, Foo Fighters took to the Pyramid Stage at 6pm on Friday and performed an epic, nine-song set. 

“You guys f**king knew it was us the whole time, you knew it was us, right?” Grohl asked the crowd after ripping through ‘The Pretender.’

“We’re not so good at secrets.”

The performance marked Foo Fighters first time at the festival since 2017, and their first full UK gig since the tragic death of Taylor Hawkins. 

Naturally, they dedicated their final song of the evening, ‘Everlong,’ to Taylor.

Before performing the 1997 hit, which was the final song Taylor ever performed, Grohl thanked the crowd and took a moment to remember the late, great drummer. 

"I would like to thank every one of you for sticking around for the last 28 years and helping us learn how to start this whole thing over again," Grohl said. 

"I'd like to dedicate this song to Mr. Taylor Hawkins. So let's sing this one loud as shit for Mr. Taylor, all right?"
