News: Foo Fighters To Make Much-Awaited Return To Australia and NZ

2 min read

(AUS) Frontier Touring have announced that rock superstars Foo Fighters will be returning to Australia and New Zealand in February and March 2015 for their biggest shows ever, with very special guests Rise Against. Wrapping up summer in the best way possible, Foo Fighters along with special guests Rise Against will be conquering stadium stages across Australia and New Zealand as well as treating Tasmania to the tour’s only indoor show at Derwent Entertainment Centre.

Produced by Butch Vig and Foo Fighters, Sonic Highways–the band’s eighth studio album and long awaited follow up to 2011’s quadruple-Grammy-winning, international #1 Wasting Light--will be released globally on Monday, November 10. Sonic Highways shares its title with the Dave Grohl-directed eight-episode docuseries (currently screening on the GO! Channel across Australia and The Edge TV in NZ) that digs deep into the heart and soul of America’s musical identity. Each one-hour episode is devoted to a different American musical landmark, chronicling the history, cultural environment and people that define each city’s unique musical identity.

Fellow rock trailblazers Rise Against will be sharing the bill with Foo Fighters at all shows. For over a decade the Chicago locals have brought a relentless thunder to the rock scene and received a bounty of acclaim and awards in the process for tracks like ‘Savior’ and ‘Prayer Of The Refugee’. Their seventh album The Black Market (out through Universal Music) was released earlier this year and saw the band score their second #1 on the Billboard Top Rock Albums chart.

Adding a local flavour to the line-up, Melbourne genre-benders The Delta Riggs will be joining the tour at all Australian shows (excluding Hobart). Their second album Dipz Zebazios (out now through Inertia Music) is the feature album on triple j this week and is filled with the high-energy jams and intoxicating anthems that the four-piece have become known and loved for.
