LIGO has announced the detection of gravitational waves on 11 Feb, 2016. I was wondering why the detection of gravitational waves was so significant?

I know it is another confirmation of general relativity (GR), but I thought we had already confirmed GR beyond much doubt. What extra stuff would finding gravitational waves teach us? Is the detection of gravitational waves significant in and of itself, or areis there data which can be extracted from the waves which will be more useful?
