Florence + The Machine took over the headlining set Friday night at Glastonbury after the Foo Fighters were forced to bow out due to Dave Grohl’s leg injury, but Florence Welch made sure he didn’t feel left out when she took the stage.

Welch and her band performed a cover of the Foo Fighters’ “Times Like These” during their set at the music festival, dedicating the performance to Grohl.

“He was so incredibly kind and supportive to us when we were first starting out and we were so sad to hear that he broke his leg because we love him so much,” she told the crowd. “And Dave, if you are listening, we love you, we all love you.”

The Foo Fighters canceled the rest of their U.K. and European tour dates after Grohl’s injury, which happened during a concert in Sweden. Welch also recently came off a leg injury, suffered when she jumped off the stage at Coachella in April.
