Dave Grohl Thanks Foo Fighters Fans And Confirms Long Hiatus

Filed under: Music MinuteDave GrohlFacebook

It's true.

The Foo Fighters are done performing and recording for "a while." But not forever!

Dave Grohl made the announcement during his band's set at the Global Citizen Festival in Central Park, but has since confirmed with a heartfelt letter to fans on Facebook.

After thanking them "for another incredible year", the band's frontman went on to write that he's not sure when they will play another show together, but he knows they will. According to Grohl, "it's not just a band to me. It's my life. It's my family. It's my world."

Rock music is gonna miss these guys, but at least some other bands will have a shot at winning a Grammy now.

Read Grohl's farewell letter on behalf of the Foo Fighters in its entirety … AFTER THE JUMP!!!

Selena Gomez Jake Gyllenhaal Lead Celebs At Global Citizens Fest

OMG! These two would make SUCH beautiful babies!

But what Selena Gomez and Jake Gyllenhaal are actually working to create is a world free from poverty!

Other celebs that joined them at Sunday's Global Citizens Festival to celebrate advances in the fight against extreme poverty include Olivia Wilde, Katharine McPhee, and John Legend.

There were also some exclusive musical performances by the Foo Fighters, The Black Keys, and Neil Young.

Ch-ch-check out the pics (below) for more of the celebrity citizens!

60,000 people filled Central Park for the concert, making it the biggest charity event ever webcast. Sounds amazing! We can't wait to go in person next year!

Maybe we'll meet Jake Gyllenhaal, and he can make beautiful babies with us. What? It could happen!

Just as soon as we solve this whole poverty thing!

Scarlett Johansson, Natalie Portman & Kerry Washington Are Speaking At The DNC!

And since three is better than one, they'll all be taking the stage at the Democratic National Convention TOGETHER!

In what may be the hottest Hollywood threesome to ever appear at a political rally, Scarlett Johansson, Natalie Portman and Kerry Washington are scheduled to speak at the event on Thursday.

They'll follow a performance from the Foo Fighters on the final night of the convention, which is definitely the biggest because both Joe Biden AND Barack Obama will be accepting the Democratic Party's nomination to once again run for office.

The three talented actresses are a pretty

The world is a little colder now that Kristen Wiig will no longer grace the stage of SNL every week. Sure, she'll probably come back to host every now and then, but it's just not the same.

Good thing her finale party was such a BASH!!!

Rocking out with the Foo Fighters at the Rockefeller Center Skating Rink, Kristen was sippin' that Coors Light and
