Foo Fighters launch “Obelisk Airlines” countdown clock

ABC/Fred WatkinsLooks like Foo Fighters are about to make a big announcement. The band has launched a countdown clock on its website that will expire this Friday, February 24 at 2:45 p.m. ET.

To get to the countdown clock, you have the click the tab on labeled "in-flight entertainment" tab. That will bring you to a page asking you to choose a virtual seat on an airplane run by the fictional Obelisk Airlines. When you do, you'll see the countdown displayed on an airplane TV set.

There's no official word on exactly what the Foos are about to announce, but rumors are flying that the band will be headlining this year's Glastonbury. The band was supposed to headline the U.K. mega festival in 2015, but had to pull out after Dave Grohl broke his leg.

Foo Fighters previously launched a mysterious countdown clock in October 2015, which resulted in the release of the band's Saint Cecilia EP.
