Having cemented their place as "the last great American rock band" (The Independent) with a recent sold out UK/Europe arena tour in support of the #1 Australia/New Zealand charting Echoes, Silence, Patience & Grace, the Foo Fighters have confirmed a 2008 return to Australia and New Zealand.

The last time the Foo Fighters were in Australia they wowed a select number of fans with their brilliant acoustic shows at Sydney Opera House, showcasing the intimate interpretations of their catalogue documented on the live Skin & Bones album.

This time, however, the Foo Fighters will be bringing their hugest ever production to arenas in Perth, Adelaide, Melbourne, Brisbane, Sydney and Auckland April 21--May 5 2008.

The already platinum Echoes, Silence, Patience & Grace is the Foo Fighters at the top of their game. The band's sixth studio album has been regaled by the press worldwide, with NME describing it as "a near-seamless amalgam of the Foos' musical yin and yang... the record the Foo Fighters have always threatened to make”, the New York Times proclaiming "there's a lot of craft here to admire" and Entertainment Weekly labeling ESP&G "Perfect... a modern-day CD that reverberates with the conviction and artistry of bygone days" -- while The Guardian looked toward the live show, announcing "The Foos' sixth and most accomplished album sees the band comfortable with arena tricks such as wistful Led Zeppelin-y acoustic guitars and choruses to learn and scream."

Foo Fighters' 12 years plus experience of headlining stadiums and festivals the world over has molded them into possibly the most consistent arena rock juggernaut of the new millennium.

Whether headlining their own show for 85,000 fans in London's Hyde Park, stealing the show at Live Earth, or playing the odd surprise show at an intimate venue, Foo Fighters deliver at each and every show, never sending a single fan home anything less than 100% satisfied -- as the reviews for 2005's In Your Honour tour testified, with The Australian opining "in an age of rock 'n' roll pretenders, seeing the real thing is resolutely life affirming. Just the way Foo Fighters like it," while the Daily Telegraph anointed Dave Grohl the "Knight of alternative rock," and The Age reiterated that statement, proclaiming him "rock royalty" and Blunt Magazine praised the versatility of the show: "They melted the girls' hearts with sweet melodies and got the boys' blood pumping with emotion-drenched anthems."
