In related news, it was revealed last week that Foo Fighters and Outkast are also headliners at this year's Voodoo Music + Arts Experience in New Orleans. That festival takes place from October 31 to November 2.

Foo Fighters also headlined Delaware's Firefly Music Festival on Friday, June 20, playing a two-hour-plus set. The band did not debut any new songs, instead opting for a "greatest hits" set that featured "Rope," "Learn to Fly," "This Is A Call," "The Pretender," "Everlong," "Big Me" and "Monkey Wrench." The Foos also played an encore as a cover band called The Holy Shits, offering up versions of "School's Out" by Alice Cooper, "Miss You" by the Rolling Stones, "Ain't Talkin' Bout Love" by Van Halen and "Under Pressure" by Queen & David Bowie.
