Hearts, minds and attendance records are set to be blown in as Foo Fighters return to rock New Zealand in support of their ninth studio album Concrete and Gold (out 15 September on Roswell Records/RCA Records through Sony Music Entertainment Australia and New Zealand).

Foo Fighters will be joined by very special guests Weezer, plus a local opener.

Foo Fighters were last in New Zealand on their 20th Anniversary World Tour supporting their eighth album Sonic Highways, tearing through anthems including 'Something From Nothing' and perennial favorites ‘Everlong’, ‘Learn To Fly’, ‘Best Of You’ and ‘My Hero’, picking up the record as one of 2015’s top five grossing tours in the process:

Available for pre-order, Concrete and Gold is the newest Foo Fighters music since 2015’s Saint Cecilia EP and the band’s first full-length album in three years. Concrete and Gold sees Foo Fighters add new dimensions to their trademark hard melodic rock n roll.

The public’s first taste of the new album came in the form of the most enthusiastically received single in Foo Fighters history, the surprise hard rock anthem of the year “Run”, and its time-traveling mind-warp of a video directed by Dave Grohl himself.

The clip for follow-up single, 'The Sky Is A Neighborhood' was a Grohl family affair, with Dave sitting in the director’s chair once more and his two daughters Violet and Harper playing the lead roles in the ‘rock and roll fairytale’ (Rolling Stone) video.

With producer Greg Kurstin (Adele, Sia, Pink) at the helm, Concrete and Gold seamlessly combines hard rock extremes and pop sensibilities across those singles and nine more incredible tracks -

“I wanted it to be the biggest sounding Foo Fighters record ever. To make a gigantic rock record but with Greg Kurstin’s sense of melody and arrangement… Motorhead’s version of Sgt. Pepper… or something like that.” – Dave Grohl

This date will be the first time New Zealand fans will experience tracks from Concrete and Gold live in all their glory, holding their own alongside Foo Fighters classics like 'Walk', 'These Days', 'The Pretender', 'All My Life' , 'Times Like These' among countless others.

American alt-rockers Weezer will be leaving ‘Beverly Hills’ behind to join Foo Fighters as their very special guests at the New Zealand show on the Concrete And Gold World Tour. This will be Weezer’s first show in our country since their acclaimed Blue Album Memories shows in 2013, and only their third NZ tour ever in an illustrious 25 plus year career defined by tracks like ‘Say It Ain’t So’, ‘Buddy Holly’, ‘Undone – The Sweater Song’, and ‘Island In The Sun’.

The release of Weezer’s eleventh studio album Pacific Daydream is slated for Friday 27 October through Warner Music, with lead singles ‘Feels Like Summer’ and ‘Mexican Fender’ already receiving buzz from fans and critics alike.

Dynamic and driving Wellington punk band Ayn Randy will open the Auckland show. With a sound duly spiked with shout-a-long hooks, expect a set filled with plenty of urgent punk on rip-roaring songs.

Make no mistake: Foo Fighters’ Concrete and Gold New Zealand show with special guests Weezer will be one for the history books. Act quick to secure your tickets to be part of one of the season’s most epic tours.
