Dave Grohl has taken to Facebook in order to set the record straight about the future of his band, the Foo Fighters.
“Without making a big deal out of it, we don’t have any shows after this… honestly, I don’t know when we’re gonna do it again.” – Dave Grohl from the stage of the Global Citizen Festival.
