It's not been a lucky break for Dave Grohl of Foo Fighters who have had to pull out of headling Glastonbury Festival and two dates at Wembley Stadium. Dave broke his leg at a previous gig after missing a platform thathe meant to jump onto.

This means that Florence & the Machine are moving up to headline Friday night at Glastonbury which, if you excuse the pun, will be their big break.

Meanwhile it's been a while since we heard any new material from Bastille but they've been trying out three new songs at recent gigs. Their debut album was released in 2013 so it must surely be time for the next album?
