Are the Foo Fighters Breaking Up?

Foo FightersIf there’s one thing the Internet loves to do, it’s blow things out of proportion. And that’s exactly what happened when Foo Fighters front man Dave Grohl announced at the band’s Saturday night show in Central Park that they “don’t have any shows after this.” Clearly, this means the Foo Fighters are breaking up forever.

In his rumor-inducing speech (seen in the video below), Grohl said, “Without making a big deal out of it, we don’t have any shows after this. This is it, man. We don’t have any ones after this. This is the show where we come out and we play as many songs as we can in a short period of time, because honestly, I don’t know when we’re going to do it again.”

Okay, so that’s a little vague, and certainly seems to hint at some sort of performance hiatus for the band, but to jump straight to news of a complete breakup seemed a little extreme. We checked in with the Foo Fighters’ camp for some clarification. A representative for the band confirmed to in an email, “They’re not breaking up,” and called the notion “ridiculous.”

Until the Foo Fighters issue a formal statement, we can only guess as to what kind of a hiatus can be expected from the group. Still, it’s a relief nonetheless to know that no drastic changes have been made. After what happened with the Beach Boys last week, our hearts can’t handle any more band drama.

Celebrity Editor Abbey Stone hails from the fair isle of Martha's Vineyard, a lovely, vaguely dinosaur-shaped spot of land located off the coast of Cape Cod, MA, that is best known for exporting preppy salmon-colored pants. But the bright lights of New York City beckoned, and Abbey was lured away from her coastal haven to attend Barnard College. She graduated in 2010 with a degree in English and a much less useful minor in Dance. Abbey has been published in Dance Magazine, The Huffington Post, Time Out New York, and Popstar! magazine (where she learned more than she ever wanted to know about Justin Bieber). Abbey now lives in Brooklyn, where she spends her days watching stupid Internet videos and reading pretentious books.
