Dave Grohl brushes off Foo Fighters break remark

Dave Grohl has downplayed speculation his band Foo Fighters are set to take a break from the spotlight following his comments at Britain's Reading Festival on Sunday (26Aug12).

The band brought the three-day music event to an end on Sunday night (26Aug12) and played a triumphant two-and-a-half hour set, during which the frontman announced the performance would be the band's last for the near future.


He told revellers, "You guys realize we've got a lot of songs to play. It's the last show of the tour and it's the last show for a long time.''


The remark sparked a wave of disappointment among fans on Twitter.com, who pleaded with the band not to take a hiatus, but Dave Grohl insists he meant it would be Foo Fighters' last show in England for some time.


In a post on his Twitter.com page, he writes, "Jeesh (sic)! Relax... I was only talking to England!! About England... Stop eavesdropping internets!"


The band has a number of shows booked over the next month (Sep12) including slots at the Music Midtown Festival in Atlanta, Georgia and the DeLuna Festival in Florida.
