11-time Grammy-winners Foo Fighters will return to Australia with a history-making performance at GMHBA Stadium on Friday 4 March.
The 2021 Rock & Roll Hall of Fame inductees will arrive in Australia next week, with this exclusive, one-off concert the Foos’ first performance down under since 2018. This will be the first time a full-capacity stadium show by any international music artist has taken place in Australia since the COVID pandemic first hit back in March 2020.
News of the Foo’s upcoming Geelong concert is announced today in partnership with the Victorian Government’s contemporary live music major event ALWAYS LIVE – a brand new, State-wide celebration of contemporary live music. Bringing together icons of Australia’s music scene with emerging local talent and some of the best global acts on the planet in a 17-day program, ALWAYS LIVE will feature shows of all scales and styles, created and curated for Victoria’s special venues, places and stages. Supported by the Victorian Government, the impetus for ALWAYS LIVE was initially conceived by legendary former Mushroom Group Chairman Michael Gudinski.
Foo Fighters will be joined in Geelong by very special guests Amyl and The Sniffers – whose 2021 album Comfort to Me debuted at #2 in Australia, #21 in the UK, and #18 in the US, and was BBC6’s Album of the Day – as well as Melbourne punk royalty The Meanies, who’ve been kicking out the jams for three decades now, most recently heard on 2020’s Desperate Measures.
