Foo Fighters, the legendary rock band with an illustrious career spanning decades, is set to make a triumphant return to Australia and New Zealand this summer. Riding high on the success of their recently released album, “But Here We Are,” which has received rave reviews from critics worldwide, the 15-time GRAMMY® winners are gearing up to bring their electrifying live show to stadiums across the region.
While the Foo Fighters’ last full tour of Australia took place in 2018, they graced the stage for a one-off show in Geelong last year, as part of the Victorian Government’s Always Live program. Tragically, that performance marked the final Australian appearance of the band’s charismatic drummer, Hawkins. Just weeks later, while on tour in Colombia, Hawkins succumbed to cardiovascular collapse, leaving a void in the hearts of fans everywhere.
In the wake of Hawkins‘ untimely passing, the band made the difficult decision to carry on. In December, they announced their commitment to continue creating music, and two weeks ago, they unveiled Josh Freese as Hawkins’ replacement in the band’s lineup.
The newly announced tour dates will be the Foo Fighters’ first headline tour of both Australia and New Zealand since 2018, making it a highly anticipated event for fans who have been eagerly awaiting their return.
Tickets for the tour will go on sale starting Thursday, 15 June, exclusively through frontiertouring.com/foofighters American Express cardholders can enjoy a pre-sale period beginning Friday, 9 June, with staggered times. For dedicated fans, the Frontier Members Pre-sale will commence on Tuesday, 13 June, also with staggered times.

“But Here We Are,” the Foo Fighters’ 11th studio album, was released last Friday, and it has already become a critical darling. Released under Roswell Records/RCA Records, the album features 10 tracks, including standout songs such as ‘Rescued,’ ‘Under You,’ ‘Show Me How,’ and ‘The Teacher.’ Produced by Greg Kurstin and the Foo Fighters themselves, the album has captivated listeners, who have praised its sonic qualities reminiscent of the band’s debut album from 1995. Despite this nod to their early days, the album showcases the growth, maturity, and depth that come from 28 years of making music together. It is a testament to the therapeutic power of their art, offering a refuge for the band of brothers in their continued journey through life.
Having recently embarked on their current world tour, the Foo Fighters have already taken the stage to resounding applause. Their tour includes headlining slots at prestigious festivals like Boston Calling, Sonic Temple, Rock am Ring, Rock im Park, Bonnaroo, Outside Lands, and Riot Fest, among others. While treating audiences to live renditions of songs from “But Here We Are,” the band promises to deliver the timeless classics that have made them one of the most sought-after acts on the global stadium, arena, and festival circuit. Expect nothing less than their greatest hits, including crowd favorites like ‘The Pretender,’ ‘Breakout,’ ‘This Is a Call,’ ‘My Hero,’ ‘All My Life,’ ‘Everlong,’ ‘The Sky Is A Neighborhood,’ ‘Learn To Fly,’ ‘Best Of You,’ ‘Monkey Wrench,’ ‘Times Like These,’ ‘Walk,’ and many more.
Before gracing the stages of Australia and New Zealand, Foo Fighters will also be making stops in Japan, Brazil, and Abu Dhabi in 2023, making it a whirlwind tour for the band and their devoted fans around the world.
Prepare to witness the unrivaled energy, talent, and showmanship of the Foo Fighters as they make their much-anticipated return to the land down under. Grab your tickets, secure your spot, and be part of a truly unforgettable musical experience that transcends time and brings people together through the power of rock ‘n’ roll.
