The last time the Foo Fighters took the stage in New Zealand, the energetic crowd triggered a seismic shift. Monitoring stations set up by GeoNet recorded a peak osculation of 3Hz during the event.
The earth will likely shift once again when the rock band perform at Auckland's Mt Smart Stadium on February 21, 2015. The show is part of the band’s worldwide tour supporting their new album Sonic Highways. The concept of the release is an American road trip, with each of the eight songs recorded in a different US city. It coincides with an eight-part HBO documentary series, with each episode devoted to a different American musical landmark, chronicling the history, cultural environment and people that define each city’s unique musical identity. It screens in New Zealand on The Edge TV every Sunday night.
The tour down under will also see the Foo’s perform for the first time in Christchurch on February 18. Support from Chicago noise-punks Rise Against.
