New Zealand, get set to rock! The 15-time GRAMMY® Award winners The Foo Fighters will make their first headline tour since 2018 this summer. The band will play in Auckland, Christchurch, and Wellington in January 2024 after the release of their critically acclaimed new album But Here We Are.
The Foo Fighters recently visited Aotearoa in 2018, when they gave a remarkable performance at Auckland's Mt Smart Stadium. The late Taylor Hawkins performed two outstanding drum solos despite the torrential downpour. For longtime Kiwi fans, the band's reunion without him is a bittersweet but welcome development.
Since their previous tour, the Foo Fighters have experienced several adjustments. Josh Freese has taken over as the band's new drummer since the untimely passing of Taylor Hawkins in 2022. Rami Jaffee joined in 2017 to play keyboards and piano. The band is eager to provide their fans with a memorable experience despite these changes because their spirit hasn't been broken.
Along with the band "Dick Move," the tour will also have a surprise special guest who has not yet been revealed. These shows are anticipated to sell out quickly due to the Foo Fighters' reputation for thrilling performances. Therefore, don't pass up this chance to witness the one and only Foo Fighters in person!
The dates for the Foo Fighters NZ shows are as follows: January 20, 2024, Go Media Stadium, Mt. Smart, Auckland; January 24, 2024, Orangetheory Stadium, Christchurch; and January 27, 2024, Sky Stadium, Wellington. Frontier Touring sells tickets, which range in price from $90 to $220. All three locations are wheelchair accessible and open to all ages.
