Grammy award-winning rock legends, the Foo Fighters, are set to tour Australia for the first time in five years at the tail end of 2023. 

The news is undoubtedly a huge cause for excitement for Aussie Foo Fighter fans, many of whom have previously missed out on highly coveted tickets to see the iconic band live.

The tour will take place in stadiums across the country, with performances in Perth, Adelaide, Melbourne, Sydney, and Brisbane from November to December this year. 

In early 2024, the tour will then journey across the pond to New Zealand, a sure surprise for the many Kiwi fans who were preparing to make the trip across to Australia to see the band.

For fans lucky enough to score tickets to the one-off, sold-out show, the gig was also one of long-time Foo Fighters drummer Tyler Hawkins’s last-ever performances with the band, the 50-year-old passing away just weeks later on March 22nd. 

Following his tragic death, the band cancelled the rest of their tour, including scheduled dates for Australia and New Zealand.

On June 2nd, 2023, the band released their eleventh studio album, and first without Tyler, But Here We Are.
