Foo Fighters are making their long-awaited, highly anticipated return to Australian shores this November and December for their first headline tour down under since 2018. In January 2024, the American music icons will rock stages in New Zealand.

The tour announcement arrives just days after the band released their new album, But Here We Are, and a year after the band flew to Geelong to host a one-off show at GMHBA Stadium.

Tickets go on sale Thursday, 15 June, via the Frontier Touring website. The American Express Presale begins Friday, 9 June, using staggered times. You can sign up here for the Frontier Members pre-sale, which starts Tuesday 13 June, also using staggered times – see website for full details.

In Melbourne, Sydney and Brisbane, Manchester’s Hot Milk will be on board as special guests. However, Foo Fighters have also invited a string of incredibly exciting local support acts, including The Chats, Teen Jesus & The Jean Teasers, Body Type and Teenage Joans. You can find the complete touring details below.

In The Music’s 4/5 star review for But Here We Are, we concluded: “On But Here We Are, he [Dave Grohl] has created a pop-rock opus, delivering complex emotion through simple lyrics and melodies in a way that hits directly at the heart. It's emotionally heavy, yet completely accessible and in working through his own pain, Dave Grohl has created a mainstream album for thinking and feeling.

“It delivers hit rock songs, takes the listener on an almost crushing emotional journey, but crucially sets them free.”

And if you haven’t seen Foo Fighters live and want to know what their tours are like, we’ve got you covered: they’re big, bold, emotional, and make you feel like you’re part of the most supportive community on Earth. “After a set so enthusiastic, so unbelievably tight, so goddamned energetic, it’s hard to imagine the Foos have anything left in the tank,” The Music said in a review of their GMHBA show.

We added, “This is proven not to be the case as they go on to shred All My Life, This Is A Call, Best Of You, and Monkey Wrench back to back in a blistering wander through their back catalogue. 

"Deliciously, they throw in the incredibly sweet yet quite unexpected addition of Big Me (this writer’s personal favourite) amongst the sweaty chaos.” You can experience that same sweaty chaos this summer in massive venues across the country.
