Foo Fighters and Weezer announce Australian tour

Primary tabs

Because sometimes dreams do come true.

This could be the greatest 90s alt-rock tour of all time.

Foo Fighters and Weezer will both visit Australia next ... for a series of arena shows that honestly feel like some kind of dream come true.

We don't feel much need to tell you why this show is suh a big deal. As far as superstar alt-rock bands from the '90s go, there are few names that even come close to comparing to the brilliance of these two acts. Between them they have an unspeakable number of songs that you know ever damn word to and still love just as much as the day they were released.


While Australia is fertile territory for Dave Grohl's Foo Fighters, Weezer have been very notably absent from Australia through their entire career. When they were last here in early 2013, it was their first visit in almost 17 years. The five years between shows is a breeze for fans in comparison.
