The Foo Fighters will headline Saturday night at Glastonbury Festival this summer, the event's organisers have announced.
The announcement has been trailed for several days and arrived accompanied by a secret show at the Cheese and Grain in Frome, Somerset, which was streamed on Periscope.
Foo Fighters were forced to cancel their Glastonbury 2015 appearance after the band's front man Dave Grohl fell and injured himself during a gig in Sweden earlier in June of that year. And how did they announce you ask?
Rumors ran rampant that the Foo Fighters would make up for their no show with a rescheduled date a year ago, but the 2016 bill instead featured Muse, Adele and Coldplay.

The US Department of Justice is pursuing the bank over the sale of mortgage-backed securities prior to the 2008 financial crisis. The bank plans to reduce its costs by £2 billion over the next four years including £750 million in 2017.
"I'm so happy that we've been able to help shine a light on Somerset's local music scene by having one of the world's biggest bands play in Frome".
Today's secret show - which wasn't so secret - seems to be the beginning of a new period of activity for the publicity-loving band. "They've certainly put it on the map now".
The concert is sparking speculation that the rock band will headline the U.K.'s Glastonbury Festival alongside Radiohead in 2017.
