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.
In a remarkable case of bad luck, frontman Dave Grohl broke his leg while on tour in Sweden that summer.
It is here it is thought they'll announce a headline slot at Glastonbury 2017, with Frome located in the same part of the country as the world-famous festival.
Foo Fighters will join recently announced Brit rockers Radiohead as headliners for the famous festival. "You know we're good for our word".
Simmons ruled out for National Basketball Association season
He underwent surgery in early October to fix an acute Jones fracture in his fifth metatarsal bone on his right foot. The last top pick to miss his entire first season was Los Angeles Clippers star Blake Griffin in 2009-10.
Foo Fighters were set to headline Glastonbury back in 2015 but were forced to pull out due to Dave Grohl breaking his leg. Foo Fighters will close the Pyramid Stage on Saturday night.
Other probable-to-rumored entertainment at Glastonbury, which takes place from June 21-25, includes The Avalanches (who tweeted an unverified confirmation that they will be playing) and Wiley, as well as Depeche Mode and Ed Sheeran.
They were replaced on the bill by Florence + the Machine - while Grohl subsequently spent the next few months performing from a giant throne.
Given how close the Cheese And Grain venue is to Glastonbury, this would seem to all but confirm it.
