(CBS News) Did Foo Fighters just play one of its last shows for a while?

If you take frontman Dave Grohl's words at face value, then it's certainly a possibility.

According to NME, while performing at England's Reading Festival on Sunday, Grohl told the crowd, "You guys realize 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.''

Grohl also talked about it being a special concert, as the band has been on the road for a while in support of 2011's "Wasting Light."

Throughout the Foo Fighters' two-and-half hour set, Grohl also made some dedications, sending out "Walk" and "Monkey Wrench" to his daughters Violet and Harper, reports NME. He also remembered his former Nirvana bandmates Krist Novoselic and the late Kurt Cobain before performing "These Days."

"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, 43, said, according to the site.

Despite Grohl's "last show for a long time" comment, Foo Fighters do have a couple of one-off dates lined up next month, including an appearance at Rock the Vote in Charlotte, N.C., on Sept. 5 and stops at Music Midtown Festival in Atlanta and the DeLuna Fest in Pensacola Beach, Fla.
