It looks like Foo Fighter fans don't have anything to worry about yet.
Rumors began to spread after a performance by the band on Saturday that they were looking to take a break. Fans may have taken that the wrong way and thought that meant a near end to the rock band.
The Foo Fighters played at the Global Citizen Festival on Saturday and that's where singer Dave Grohl said fans would have to wait a while till the band got together for another concert.

"This is it, man. We don't have any [shows] after this," Grohl said on stage. "This is the show where we come out and we play as many songs as we can in a short period of time, because honestly, I don't know when we're going to do it again."
However, Grohl addressed his fans in a statement through his publicist on Tuesday that clarified the band's intentions.
"There were times when I didn't think the band would survive," Grohl admits in the statement. "There were times when I wanted to give up. But . . . I can't give up this band. And I never will. Because it's not just a band to me. It's my life. It's my family. It's my world."
So the band will be taking a hiatus, but not a permanent one.
"I'm not sure when the Foo Fighters are going to play again," he explained on Tuesday. "It feels strange to say that, but it's a good thing for all of us to go away for a while. It's one of the reasons we're still here. Make sense? I never want to not be in this band. So, sometimes it's good to just ... put it back in the garage for a while."
Grohl will be focusing his time away from the band while he works on his documentary "Sound City," and an adjoining soundtrack. "A year in the making, it could be the biggest, most important project I've ever worked on," he said. "Get ready ... it's coming."
