GET ready to rock Sydney - Foo Fighters are returning to ANZ Stadium on Saturday 27 January with their Concrete & Gold World Tour!
The 11-time Grammy-winning, 25+ million-record-selling rock gods will be joined by American alt-rockers Weezer, and Sydney favourites The Preatures.
Last in Australia in 2015 for their 20th Anniversary World Tour Sonic Highways, the Foo Fighters blew fans away, tearing through anthems including ‘Something From Nothing’ and perennial favourites ‘Everlong’, ‘Learn To Fly’, ‘Best Of You’ and ‘My Hero’, with critics raving:
‘Hit after hit on a perfect summer night’ – Billboard
‘The crowd young and old joined in, belting out songs that span the best part of our lives… brilliant in every respect’ – The Adelaide Advertiser
Concrete and Gold is the newest Foo Fighters music since 2015’s Saint Cecilia EP and the band’s first full-length album in three years. Concrete and Gold sees Foo Fighters add new dimensions to their trademark hard melodic rock n roll.
The public’s first taste of the new album came in the form of the most enthusiastically received single in Foo Fighters history, the surprise hard rock anthem of the year “Run”, and its time-traveling mind-warp of a video directed by Dave Grohl himself.
The clip for follow-up single, “The Sky Is A Neighborhood” was a Grohl family affair, with Dave sitting in the director’s chair once more and his two daughters Violet and Harper playing the lead roles in the ‘rock and roll fairytale’ (Rolling Stone) video.
With producer Greg Kurstin (Adele, Sia, Pink) at the helm, Concrete and Gold seamlessly combines hard rock extremes and pop sensibilities across those singles and nine more incredible tracks:
“I wanted it to be the biggest sounding Foo Fighters record ever. To make a gigantic rock record but with Greg Kurstin’s sense of melody and arrangement… Motorhead’s version of Sgt. Pepper… or something like that.” – Dave Grohl
These dates will be the first time Australian and New Zealand fans will experience tracks from Concrete and Gold live in all their glory, holding their own alongside Foo Fighters classics like “Walk”, “These Days”, “The Pretender”, “All My Life” “Times Like These” among countless others.
Make no mistake: Foo Fighters’ Concrete & Gold World Tour with special guests Weezer will be one for the history books. Act quick to secure your tickets to be part of one of the season’s most epic tours!
