Reports are coming in saying that the Foo Fighters will be playing a special invitation-only gig at a non-profit arts center in Frome, Somerset this Friday evening. This news has only served to add more to the long running speculation that the band will be among the acts that will be headlining the Glastonbury Festival 2017.

The rock band have long been rumoured to headline the festival this year especially after they were forced to bow out of the 2015 festival when frontman Dave Grohl injured his leg. According to NME, the band had been teasing the announcement earlier this week and launched their Obelisk Airline website a little later on. The website is stylized in a similar manner to an in-flight entertainment system.

Fans who checked the website claim to have received an email inviting them to come to the Cheese and Grain venue in Frome, Somerset on Friday February 24. However, the venue itself would later announce on Facebook that they would be closed on Friday as they are scheduled to have a "strictly private event".

The announcement also stated that no tickets would be available to anyone who was not already invited to take part in the event. The band has also followed the Twitter accounts of two record shops in Frome, Covers Vinyl and Raves from the Grave, with the former tweeting its thanks to the band.

The Foo Fighters were originally supposed to perform in the 2015 Glastonbury Festival, but had to pull out after vocalist Dave Grohl suffered a leg injury during a gig in Sweden. The Glastonbury Festival 2017 will run from June 21 to 25. Some of the other acts rumoured to perform in the event are Ed Sheeran and Depeche Mode. Radiohead are the only act to be officially confirmed thus far for the 2017 Glastonbury Festival.
