“We’re gonna be here all f**k’n night!”: Foo Fighters deliver the greatest night of live music Geelong has ever seen

Released last Friday, Foo Fighters’ 11th studio album But Here We Are is out now on Roswell Records/RCA Records – listen here. Featuring ‘Rescued’, ‘Under You’, ‘Show Me How’, and ‘The Teacher’, the 10-track album was produced by Greg Kurstin and Foo Fighters, and has been already been met with waves of critical acclaim hailing it as one of the best in the vaunted Foo Fighters catalogue.

Sonically channelling the naiveté of the band’s 1995 debut, informed by decades of maturity and depth, But Here We Are is the sound of brothers finding refuge in the music that brought them together in the first place 28 years ago, a process that was as therapeutic as it was about a continuation of life.


The world’s premier stadium band returned to the stage two weeks ago to kick off their current world tour, which includes headline sets at festivals Boston Calling, Sonic Temple, Rock am Ring, Rock im Park, Bonnaroo, Outside Lands, Riot Fest, and more. In addition to the live debut of songs from But Here We Are, fans can of course expect the kind of setlists which have made Foo Fighters one of the biggest live draws on the worldwide stadium, arena and festival circuit: ‘The Pretender’‘Breakout’‘This Is a Call’‘My Hero’‘All My Life’‘Everlong’‘The Sky Is A Neighborhood’‘Learn To Fly’‘Best Of You’‘Monkey Wrench’‘Times Like These’‘Walk’ and more. Foo Fighters will also perform in Japan, Brazil and Abu Dhabi in 2023, before heading down under.

Tickets go on sale Thursday 15 June, with pre-sale kicking off Tuesday 13 June. Head here for more.
