After the lead singer of Foo Fighters Dave Grohl broke his leg the Glastonbury officials started looking for a replacement. And they found it! The main opening night slot will be taken by Florence + The Machine!

Foo Fighters were forced to cancel their European tour due to the fact that their lead singer Dave Grohl broke his leg. So their place at the main opening slot at Glastonbury appeared to be vacant. However, the festival announced, they had only one acceptable replacement on their mind and it was Florence + The Machine, which accepted the festival’s proposal.

We’re very pleased to announce that Florence + The Machine will play the Friday night Pyramid headline slot, which Foo Fighters were forced to withdraw from yesterday.

– announced the popular British festival on Wednesday on its website.

It was an announcement from Foo Fighters, which stated on Tuesday that they have to cancel their European tour. The cause was Grohl’s recovering from leg surgery after he broke it during the last week performance. That cancelling includes Glastonbury festival on June 26.

On the official page of Glastonbury website it was stated by its co-organizer Emily Eavis:

Once we heard the sad news that Foo Fighters had been forced to pull out, there was only one person we wanted to call and that was Florence

She also added:

Every time she has played here she’s done something spectacular and we always knew she would headline the Pyramid one day. I’m delighted she’s agreed to step up to it – she’s going to smash it!
