A second and final Melbourne performance has been added to the Foo Fighters’ upcoming stadium tour of Australia. The band will perform an additional performance at the location on Tuesday, 6 Dec, due to “great demand during pre-sale” for the previously planned gig at AAMI Park on Sunday, 4 Dec Tomorrow (10 Mar) at 2 pm local time, tickets for the new show will go on sale to the potential general public, as will tickets for all subsequent performances on tour. Earlier this month, Foo Fighters announced their first headlining tour of Australia in 2018.
The band will play concerts in Perth, Melbourne, Brisbane, and Sydney in late November. The Chats, Amyl and the Sniffers, Teenage Joans, UK band Hot Milk, and more acts will tour with the band along the road. Soon after the band played a one-off concert at GMHBA Stadium in the small Victorian city of Geelong, a full tour announcement was made. Since the potential start of the COVID-19 epidemic, it was the first stadium performance by a foreign artist to reach capacity.
Grunge, alternative rock, post-grunge, hard rock, and pop-rock have all been used to define the music of Foo Fighters. At first, they were contrasted with Grohl’s former band, Nirvana. Kurt Cobain, who Grohl cited as having influenced his songwriting, “understood the beauty of simplicity and the value of music that is pared down,” Grohl said. The Knack, Bay City Rollers, Beatles, and ABBA, according to Grohl, were influences on the members of Nirvana, who “loved The Knack, Bay City Rollers, Beatles, and ABBA as much as we liked Flipper and Black Flag, I suppose.” Foo Fighters also employed this style in their songs.
Grohl was solely responsible for writing and producing the band’s debut album, and he wanted the guitar riffs to have as much rhythm as possible. He used the guitar similarly to how he played the drums, allocating different drum components to the strings. He remarked, “I could hear the song in my brain before it was done.” It made it simple for him to piece together melodies. After Grohl put together a full band, the musicians helped with song arrangements. According to Pitchfork, Grohl and the group are “his generation’s Tom Petty—a steady hit machine cranking out working-class rock.”
American rock group Foo Fighters was founded in Seattle in 1994. Former Nirvana drummer Dave Grohl started the Foo Fighters as a solo endeavor. Following the success of their self-titled first album, Grohl (lead vocals, guitar) assembled a group that included Pat Smear (drums), Nate Mendel (bass guitar), and William Goldsmith (drums) (guitar). The band’s main lineup, which consists of Grohl, Mendel, Chris Shiflett (guitar), and Taylor Hawkins, was established in 1999 after a series of lineup changes that included the exits of Goldsmith and Smear (drums). Smear rejoined the group in 2005, and Rami Jaffee, who plays keyboards and piano, joined in 2017.
