In the vibrant tapestry of their musical journey, every one of the Foo Fighters' 11 studio albums has resonated deeply with Australian fans, consistently climbing to the top five positions in the charts. What's even more remarkable is that 'But Here We Are' continues the band's exceptional streak, making it their ninth consecutive release to claim the coveted top spot.
To put this achievement into perspective, the Foo Fighters have enjoyed an unparalleled run of success in Australia. For over two decades, every album featuring their new and innovative material has triumphantly made its way to the number one position, showcasing the band's remarkable consistency and the unwavering loyalty of their Australian fanbase.
As the Foo Fighters gear up for a monumental Australian and New Zealand tour, their latest chart-topping triumph serves as a testament to the enduring love affair between the band and their Australian admirers. Let's look at the Foo Fighters Australian tour history as we prepare for their next visit.
Foo Fighters' latest creation, 'But Here We Are' – is a concise and electrifying celebration of pure, unadulterated rock'n'roll. Dave Grohl, the band's iconic frontman, recognises Australians' unique adoration for exceptional rock music. He expressed this admiration, stating, “A lot of places don’t have that same passion for rock music as Australians.” He praised the Australian music scene, highlighting the incredible energy at gigs, a sentiment he shared with the Sydney Morning Herald last year.
In their highly anticipated national tour slated for November and December 2023, the Foo Fighters will showcase their latest musical masterpiece. This tour marks a significant moment for the band, as it's their first national tour since 2018 and the inaugural tour featuring their new drummer, Josh Freese. This change follows the heart-wrenching loss of Taylor Hawkins, the band's beloved drummer, early last year. Despite this profound loss, the Foo Fighters are poised to deliver an unforgettable performance, paying homage to their musical legacy while embracing the future.
This tour signifies the Foo Fighters' 14th visit to the Australian shores. To amplify the rock extravaganza, the band will be sharing the stage with some of Australia's most promising young bands. Among them are the acclaimed Sydney stars Body Type and the Grohl-endorsed 'shed rockers,' The Chats.
The connection between Australia and the Foo Fighters runs deep, and their commitment to their Aussie fans has been unwavering, especially during challenging times. In the wake of Australia emerging from the depths of Covid isolation in 2021, Dave Grohl took it upon himself to ensure that the Foo Fighters were the first major band to grace Australian shores once again. They staged a remarkable one-off show at CMHBA Stadium in Geelong, marking a triumphant return for live music enthusiasts. However, their productivity during the pandemic extended far beyond this triumphant return to the stage.
While the world was grappling with the uncertainties of the pandemic, the Foo Fighters were far from idle. In a testament to their creativity and versatility, they channelled their musical energy into crafting a unique tribute album dedicated to the legendary Bee Gees, adopting the alter ego "Dee Gees." This project showcased their ability to pay homage to iconic musical influences while infusing their distinctive flair into the tracks. Simultaneously, they ventured into the realm of cinema, creating a horror-comedy film titled 'Studio 666,' a move that highlighted their good-natured humour and creative spirit.
However, the profound bond between the Foo Fighters and Australia predates these recent endeavours. A remarkable incident from 2006 stands as a testament to Grohl's empathy and generosity. On Anzac Day of that year, two miners found themselves trapped nearly a kilometre below the surface in Beaconsfield, Tasmania. Faced with an unimaginable ordeal, they requested that their iPods be loaded with Foo Fighters' songs to provide solace during their wait for rescue. Grohl, upon learning about their dire situation, made a heartfelt promise: two free tickets to any Foo Fighters show worldwide and, perhaps symbolising solidarity and hope, two cold beers upon their rescue. True to his word, Grohl not only fulfilled this promise but went a step further. In an act of artistic tribute and compassion, he composed a song titled 'Ballad Of The Beaconsfield Miners' in their honour, immortalising their courage and resilience in the face of adversity.
The Foo Fighters tour continues its whirlwind journey
The band are rocking their way through headline shows and festivals across North and South America, with rumours of an impending Glastonbury performance only adding to the mounting excitement. Down Under, anticipation for their imminent visit reaches fever pitch, with fans eagerly awaiting their chance to witness the legendary band in action. It's no surprise that tickets are expected to vanish.
The recent reviews of their comeback performances echo a resounding sentiment of positivity. With each show, Dave Grohl, the band's charismatic frontman, defies the passage of time, bounding around the stage with the energy of a man half his age. His electrifying presence is a testament to his enduring passion for music and his unyielding commitment to delivering unforgettable performances. For Grohl, being on stage is not just a duty; it's a calling, a devotion to the sheer joy of creating thunderous rock'n'roll alongside his friends.
