Foo Fighters Announce Australian Tour With Weezer For January 2018
Music 10m

A few weeks back, Dave Grohl and Taylor Hawkins played a sneaky surprise show in Sydney, and here comes the news that we were all expecting: Foo Fighters will be making their way back to Australia in early 2018.

Foo Fighters will be trekking all across the country this January to play the most spacious stadiums we have to offer, before hopping over the Tasman for one sole show in New Zealand. With their new album Concrete and Gold set to release this September, it’ll be the first chance for Australian fans to hear new singles like ‘The Sky Is A Neighbourhood’ and ‘Run’, as well as seasoned FF favourites that have earned them demigod status over the past two decades.

Joining the party are fellow rock veterans Weezer, as well as select guests at each show that range from DZ Deathrays to The Preatures. And while these shows take place in January 2018, we’re betting that they’ll be some of the biggest of the year. Please watch this absolutely fucking amazing video of 1000 people playing ‘Learn To Fly’ and see all the dates and details below:
