Foo Fighters to perform at BRIT Awards

Foo Fighters will perform at the BRIT Awards for the first time on February 21.

The band's ninth studio album Concrete and Gold (Columbia) was their fourth to hit No.1 in the UK charts on release in September, topping the charts in more than a dozen countries. 

BRITs chairman & CEO and chairman of Sony Music UK & Ireland Jason Iley said: “Anyone who was lucky enough to witness one of their shows on the recent sold out UK tour, or their set at Glastonbury - which was undoubtedly one of the best performances the festival has ever seen and a night that will be talked about forever - will know why Foo Fighters are the biggest and most exciting rock band in the world.

"Quite remarkably they have never performed at The BRITs, so I am over the moon to confirm a massive BRITs exclusive to have them grace our stage.”

The band have four BRIT Awards under their belt, winning International Album in 2008 and International Group in 2008, 2012 and 2015.

Other confirmed performers for this year's BRITs include Ed Sheeran, Sam Smith, Stormzy and Dua Lipa.

The nominations for the 2018 BRIT Awards will be revealed at The BRITs Are Coming on Saturday (January 13). The show broadcast live on ITV will be hosted by Emma Willis and include live performances from Clean Bandit, J Hus, Jorja Smith, Liam Payne and Paloma Faith.
