IT may be an early call, but the Foo Fighters, or now known as The Churnups, may have provided the best moment of Glastonbury Festival 2023.

I spent the set filled with joy, listening to hit after hit along with a packed Pyramid Stage crowd.

The Churnups were the Foo Fighters all along, and the big hint perhaps many missed, was they were playing the same stage, night and spot as their Glastonbury debut 25 years earlier.

Dave Grohl spoke to the crowd, saying how the band were bad at keeping the secret.

“You guys knew it was us this whole time, you knew it,” he said.

“We’re not good at secrets.”

He added towards the end of the show: “Well, it’s nice to see your faces again, it’s been a long time. This is another beautiful day, another beautiful audience.”

Their set list included All My Life, No Son of Mine, Learn to Fly, Rescued, The Pretender, My Hero, Show Me How (with Violet Grohl), Best of You.

The set ended with Everlong which was fittingly dedicated to Taylor Hawkins.

Festival-goers described the Foo Fighters surprise set as “phenomenal” as the band’s frontman Dave Grohl dedicated the last song to their late drummer, Taylor Hawkins.

John McGuckin, 31, from Belfast, said: “Incredible, I’m not going to lie, I shed a tear at the end, it was that good.

“Phenomenal, phenomenal.”

Dave Grohl finished by saying: “But I already know we’re coming back for a whole f****** tour but I would like to thank every one of you for sticking around for the last 28 years.”

The crowd truly loved it, as did I. The best performance of the festival so far, and perhaps the best overall. Truly a great moment, a great memory and a brilliant rock band.
