Reading Festival: Foo Fighters' Dave Grohl Pays Tribute To Nirvana Bandmate Kurt Cobain, And Odd Future Get Odder...

Rockers Foo Fighters made the last night of the Reading Festival in England one to remember by playing a mammoth 26-song set and singing happy birthday to Dave Grohl's mum.

The band brought the three-day music event to an end on Sunday night after headlining at the festival's sister site in Leeds, England on Friday.

Ploughing through 26 tracks over two-and-a-half hours, Grohl announced that the performance would be the band's last for the near future.

He told revellers, "You guys realise we've got a lot of songs to play. It's the last show of the tour and it's the last show for a long time.''

The rocker also took time to remember his former Nirvana bandmates, the late Kurt Cobain and Krist Novoselic, by dedicating his Three Days song to them.

He added, "I'd like to dedicate this song to a couple of people who couldn't be here tonight. This one's for Krist and this one's for Kurt.''

Grohl then remembered when Nirvana played the festival 20 years earlier and how the crowd sang happy birthday to his mother - and brought her out onstage to relive the moment.

He said, "In 1992 when Nirvana played here, the last show we ever played in England, you sang happy birthday to my mom. Here's your chance."

Meanwhile, over in Leeds...

Rap group Odd Future continued to court controversy with their performance at Leeds Festival on Sunday by attacking a blow-up sex doll on stage.

The hip-hop collective, who are famous for their shocking lyrics and gigs, stunned fans at the music event in England by bringing out a blow-up doll, which was bound and gagged.

They then kicked the item off the stage, before bandmember Jasper Dolphin stamped on its head.

Frontman Tyler, The Creator told the crowd, "You body slammed that b**ch. Is she OK?", adding, "S**t I just killed Kimberly."

The antics followed their set at Leeds' sister festival in Reading, where the band got in an altercation with security staff after they tried to go out into the crowd.
