'Foo Fighters Blew My Mind': Fooies Begin Sonic Highways Tour In Style
Foo Fighters embark on Sonic Highways tour.
Australia is in for a treat if the first Foo Fighters New Zealand stadium show is anything to go by, it was described as the 'best Wednesday night in Chch ever'.
Foo Fighters started their two and a half hour show at Christchurch’s AMI Stadium with Something For Nothing which was “one of the best open-air concerts the city has ever seen”, according to Stuff NZ.
A secondary, or B stage, was used for part of the set which included a number of classic rock covers Detroit City by KISS, The Faces' Stay With Me, AC/DC's Let There Be Rock and Queen's Under Pressure.
Dave Grohl introducing them: "When we were kids, we played these songs in a garage. These songs made us wanna play rock n roll."
And over the intro to Under Pressure: "Doctors and lawyers and Domino pizza f***ing delivery guys can kiss my f***ing ass because I get to play this song for you."
Foo Fighters play in Australia from February 24 in Brisbane.
You can read more audience reviews below.
The Foo Fighters will perform a charity show at the Auckland Town Hall on Friday night, and Auckland on Saturday before coming to Australia.
