Hearts, minds and attendance records are set to be blown in January and February 2018 as Foo Fighters return to rock stadiums across Australia and New Zealand in support of their ninth studio album Concrete and Gold (out 15 September on Roswell Records/RCA Records through Sony Music Entertainment Australia and New Zealand).
The 11-time Grammy-winning, 25+ million-record-selling stadium rock greats will welcome the new year with an epic tour that kicks off at Perth’s nib Stadium on Saturday 20 January, before touring Adelaide, Brisbane, Sydney and Melbourne, and wrapping up across the ditch at Auckland’s Mt Smart Stadium on Saturday 3 February.
Foo Fighters will be joined at all shows by very special guests Weezer, plus a local opener from each city on the tour.
Foo Fighters were last in Australia and New Zealand on their 20th Anniversary World Tour supporting their eighth album Sonic Highways, tearing through anthems including Something From Nothing and perennial favorites Everlong, Learn To Fly, Best Of You and My Hero, picking up the record as one of 2015’s top five grossing tours in the process:
‘Hit after hit on a perfect summer night’ – Billboard
‘The crowd young and old joined in, belting out songs that span the best part of our lives… brilliant in every respect’ – The Adelaide Advertiser
Available for pre-order here, Concrete and Gold is the newest Foo Fighters music since 2015’s Saint Cecilia EP and the band’s first full-length album in three years. Concrete and Gold sees Foo Fighters add new dimensions to their trademark hard melodic rock n roll.
The public’s first taste of the new album came in the form of the most enthusiastically received single in Foo Fighters history, the surprise hard rock anthem of the year Run, and its time-traveling mind-warp of a video directed by Dave Grohl himself.
The clip for follow-up single, The Sky Is A Neighborhood was a Grohl family affair, with Dave sitting in the director’s chair once more and his two daughters Violet and Harper playing the lead roles in the ‘rock and roll fairytale’ (Rolling Stone) video.
