Everything you need to know about Foo Fighters New Zealand shows

Here's your gig-guide for Foo Fighters NZ shows!

The Foo Fighters lads are headed to NZ this week, and we couldn’t be more fizzed to see them live again. 

The Foo Fighters had a bloody ripper at their first show in Auckland, and on Wednesday night they dominated the south from Christchurch's Apollo Projects Stadium (previously known as OrangeTheory Stadium).

The band will finish at Wellington's Sky Stadium Saturday, January 27, along with special guests The Breeders and Dick Move. 

Here's everything you need to know about their massive Wellington show.

For details about the full tour - check out our events page.

Welly, you’re also getting a pre-party! Head down to Shed 22 from 2pm so we can all get amped for the gig together. The Morning Rumble will be down there hosting, plus the first 100 people to show up will snag a free Rock singlet, and we'll be giving out some free sh*t.
