Foo Fighters Add Second Melbourne Show To 2023 Tour

Foo Fighters have added a second and final Melbourne show to their upcoming Australian tour due to demand. The second show will take place on Wednesday, 6th December at Melbourne’s AAMI Park, which is two days after their first show at the venue.

The Foos will be joined at the new date by The Chats and Teenage Joans. The tour kicks off in Perth on Wednesday, 29th November, moving through Adelaide, Melbourne, Sydney, and finishing up in Brisbane on Tuesday, 12th December.

Foo Fighters: ‘Rescued’

The shows are in support of the band’s just-released 11th album But Here We Are. These will be their first Australian dates without longtime drummer Taylor Hawkins, who passed away in March 2022.

After playing a one-off show in Geelong in early March 2022, the band announced they’d be back for a larger tour at the end of that year – however, the passing of Hawkins delayed any such announcement as they dealt with the loss.

Josh Freese, a renowned session muso who has played with Guns N’ RosesNine Inch NailsParamore, and Weezer, joined the Foos as their new drummer in May 2023.

Foo Fighters have booked an array of local support acts for the tour – in addition to The Chats and Teenage Joans, they’ll be joined by Body Type, Hot Milk and Teen Jesus and the Jean Teasers.
