DAVE GROHL Says FOO FIGHTERS Have Been Approached About Playing SUPER BOWL

FOO FIGHTERS frontman Dave Grohl told Los Angeles radio station KROQ in a new interview that he has met with representatives for the Super Bowl in the past about the band possibly landing the coveted halftime show gig. According to The Pulse Of Radio, MAROON 5 has reportedly been tapped to headline the event for Super Bowl LIII, although that has yet to be officially confirmed by the NFL.

Grohl revealed: "I've had multiple conversations over the years with them where they say, 'We want to have a rock and roll band. Do you think you could do it? Do you think you could do a stadium?' I was, like, 'Yeah man, we do it all the time.' We're, like, 'Oh my God, I think we're gonna do the Super Bowl!' And then it'll be, like, Madonna or Katy Perry or somebody like that."

Grohl continued: "I actually got really hammered at this party in France once, and got to meet the dude that does the Super Bowl thing, and I was, like, 'I don't even want to do the Super Bowl! I used to want to do it. Now I don't want to do it anymore!'"

Drummer Taylor Hawkins joked: "Not to be negative on MAROON 5, but [the Super Bowl] always seems to be the final chapter in your career," to which Grohl added: "We're just trying to come up with excuses why we haven't done it."

FOO FIGHTERS will next headline the second annual Cal Jam in San Bernardino, California on October 6, with GARBAGE, GRETA VAN FLEET, SILVERSUN PICKUPS and many more.
