The honours were given to George Michael to open the new Wembley Stadium last year and after super-massive gigs from Muse and Iron Maiden it’s down to Foo Fighters to carry the torch in 2008.

After the success of two shows at both V Festivals in 2007, this gig makes the Foos a strong rumour for Download, which takes place the weekend after. Expect crowds of around 75,000 and the sound as loud as 11!
