It's their first time!
Foo Fighters

Foo Fighters are set to play the BRIT Awards for the first time later this year.

The awards ceremony is shaping up to be spectacular, with the full list of nominations set to be announced shortly.

Ed Sheeran, Stormzy, Dua Lipa and Sam Smith have all confirmed performances, with Foo Fighters also set to drop past.

Oddly, it's the first time Dave Grohl & Co. have played the event, and they're clearly relishing the opportunity to return to the O2.

Foo Fighters explain: "How the fuck have we never played at The BRIT Awards before!?!?! We’ve had a ton of firsts over in the UK.... from our first festival (Reading 95) to our first headlining arena tour (2002) to our first stadium tour (2008) guys have always been so good to us. Why not add 2018 Brit awards to the list??!?!?"

BRITs Chairman & CEO and Chairman of Sony Music UK & Ireland Jason Iley said “Anyone who was lucky enough to witness one of their shows on the recent sold out UK tour, or their set at Glastonbury - which was undoubtedly one of the best performances the festival has ever seen and a night that will be talked about forever - will know why Foo Fighters are the biggest and most exciting rock band in the world. Quite remarkably they have never performed at the BRITs, so I am over the moon to confirm a massive BRITs exclusive to have them grace our stage.”

BRIT Awards take place on February 21st at London's O2 Arena.
