Foo Fighters are not only headlining London's Invictus Games closing ceremony this weekend, but the band also got their fans excitited and intrigued with the hint they posted on Twitter announcing three intimate club shows somewhere in the UK.
Here is the Tweet, which provoked a lot of debate among fans:
Sure missed you...now, let's do 3 club gigs this week... pic.twitter.com/GnbP4EU6XG— Foo Fighters (@foofighters) September 8, 2014
Naturally, at first fans seemed to be very excited about the whole mysterious-gigs-in-the-UK concept, and collectively Tweeted, liked and shared:

I'll be the happiest person on the planet if I get to one of these @foofighters gigs. Fingers crossed they aren't all in shitty London— Jamie (@weresorry) September 8, 2014
Fans then attempted to guess the venue. 'Somewhere in Brixton or Camden' seems to be the most popular speculation:
Tabs I have open on FB: Brixton Academy, Electric Brixton, The Plug, Foo Fighters. On the net: Foo Fighters Forums, FF Twitter, Plug twitter— Sam B-K (@samthemanbk) September 8, 2014
Today's priorities include refreshing twitter until Foo Fighters reveal the time/place of these club gigs they're doing. Brixton I reckon.— Nick Reilly (@NickJWReilly) September 8, 2014

@foofighters Camden Electric Ballroom? They seem to have a clear calendar for this week. ;-)— Russell Banyard (@russtcars) September 8, 2014
Foo Fighters tease a possible(?) secret gig, probably London(?). Dingwalls' again? Off to Camden if it is; eyes open people. #FooFighters— Kenny Overman (@Kisushima) September 6, 2014
As pressure and anticipation grow, fans start to get frustrated and a little hysterical:
I will probably cry if I don't get to see the @foofighters.— Jordon Robinson (@jordonredroom) September 8, 2014
@foofighters please please play London on Wednesday or I'll be heart broken. Otherwise, please come and play a gig on my tube train.— Kate McKeon (@kaaaattteeeee) September 8, 2014
I'd sell one of my kidneys for a @foofighters ticket. TICKET DETAILS, PLEASE.— Patrick Heafield (@green_army12) September 8, 2014
