Sat 2 Dec 2023 – 5:30pm
With special guests The Chats + Body Type
Presented by Frontier Touring, American Express, Triple M (AU) and The Rock (NZ)
Following the release of their universally acclaimed new album But Here We Are, Frontier Touring is thrilled to announce 15-time GRAMMY® winners Foo Fighters will bring their unrivalled live show to Australia and New Zealand this summer, including a stop at Coopers Stadium on 2 December 2023.
The summer tour represents Foo Fighters’ first headline tour of both countries since 2018.
Foo Fighters’ 11th studio album But Here We Are is out now on Roswell Records/RCA Records – listen here. Featuring ‘Rescued’, ‘Under You’, ‘Show Me How’, and ‘The Teacher’, the 10-track album was produced by Greg Kurstin and Foo Fighters, and has been met with waves of critical acclaim hailing it as one of the best in the vaunted Foo Fighters catalogue. Sonically channelling the naiveté of the band’s 1995 debut, informed by decades of maturity and depth, But Here We Are is the sound of brothers finding refuge in the music that brought them together in the first place 28 years ago, a process that was as therapeutic as it was about a continuation of life.
The world’s premier stadium band returned to the stage with headline sets at festivals Boston Calling, Sonic Temple, Rock am Ring, Rock im Park, Bonnaroo, Outside Lands, Riot Fest, and more. In addition to the live debut of songs from But Here We Are, fans can expect the kind of setlists which have made Foo Fighters one of the biggest live draws on the worldwide stadium, arena and festival circuit: ‘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 more.
Joining Foo Fighters as special guests at their Coopers Stadium concert are:
- QLD punkers The Chats conquered the globe in 2017 with ‘Smoko’ then hit #1 with LP Get F**cked. Hands down the world’s greatest post-millennial punk-rock group, they’ll be match-fit by November following a 28-date US tour in October.
- Sydney four-piece Body Type amassed critical acclaim with their 2022 debut Everything Is Dangerous But Nothing’s Surprising, nominated for ‘Record of Year’ by FBI Radio. Get your head around their new album, Expired Candy.
