Foo Fighters heading to regional Australian city next month? | Northern Beaches Review


American rock band Foo Fighters are set to perform a unique concert in Geelong in March.

Rumor has it that the band, fronted by rock legend Dave Grohl, will perform at Geelong’s biggest stadium, the GMHBA Stadium in Kardinia Park, next month.

The show is reportedly part of an initiative to promote a new statewide celebration of live music, “Always Live.” The initiative aims to promote the state as a world-class destination for live music.

The group has yet to make an official announcement but it hasn’t stopped. The Sun Herald report the concert.

Grohl is no stranger to Australia and its regions, writing an instrumental piece for the two Tasmanian miners in the 2006 Beaconsfield gold mine collapse.

This happened after one of the miners, Brant Webb, requested that an iPod be sent filled with Foo Fighters songs.

Grohl heard about the story and sent them a note, apparently saying “Although I’m halfway around the world right now, my heart is with you both, and I want you to know that when you get home back home, there are 2 tickets to any Foos show, anywhere, and 2 cold beers waiting for you.

The Foo Fighters have announced that they will be touring Canada in September and October of this year.
