IT’S OFFICIAL. Rock and roll superstars, the Foo Fighters, are bringing their Sonic Highways world tour to ANZ Stadium on Thursday 26 February 2015.

Last in Australia in 2011 for a massive run of sold out stadium dates, the Foo Fighters blew fans and critics away:

‘An epic night of stadium rock at its best.’ – Beat

‘Two and a half hours of pure unadulterated, legendary stadium rock by the world's finest rock band, the Foo Fighters. Blew everybody away and more’ – Triple M

The Foo Fighters Sonic Highways Tour will see the band play many of their epic stadium anthems as well as soon-to-be classics from Sonic Highways such as lead single ‘Something From Nothing’.

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 10 November.

In the two decades since the 1995 release of Foo Fighters' self-titled debut album, Foo Fighters have grown into arguably the last great American stadium rock band, hauled in 11 Grammy Awards, sold 25 million records worldwide and spawned countless hits including “Everlong," "Monkey Wrench," "My Hero," "Learn To Fly," "All My Life," "Best Of You," "The Pretender," “Walk" and more.

Dave Grohl, Taylor Hawkins, Nate Mendel, Chris Shiflett and Pat Smear are in their finest form yet and on the Sonic Highways tour, the band and fans will ensure their ANZ Stadium take-over is an unforgettable celebration of 20 years of Foo Fighters.

Chicago punk act Rise Against will open for the Foo Fighters. For over a decade Rise Against have brought a relentless thunder to the rock scene and received a bounty of acclaim and awards. Adding a local flavour to the line-up, Melbourne genre-benders The Delta Riggs will also be joining the tour.

Frontier Members pre-sale begins Tuesday 11 November. General public tickets go on sale from Thursday 13 November, available here.
