Foo Fighters confirmed for Brit Awards

Foo Fighters are going to play at the Brit Awards for the first time ever.

Frontman Dave Grohl's tweeted that they're going to add the ceremony next month to "a ton of firsts" they've had in the UK.

Other performers previously confirmed for the show on February 21st include Ed Sheeran, Stormzy, Dua Lipa and Sam Smith.

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."

Foo Fighters join previously confirmed performers, Sam Smith, Ed Sheeran, Stormzy and Dua Lipa in taking to the stage for what looks set to be a show-stopping show.

The Mastercard-sponsored ceremony will see British comedian Jack Whitehall host.

On Saturday (13.01.17), the awards will kick off with the nominations launch show, 'The BRITs Are Coming 2018', which will once again be hosted by Emma Willis, and will air on UK TV channel ITV from 5.45pm.
