Dave Grohl  Gets Real:\

Grohl got all sentimental, pouring out his love for Australia, calling it one of their “fave f**king places in the world.” No BS. You could feel the connection, like Oz was a “home away from home” for the band that’s been rocking for 28 years.

With his crew – Nate Mendel, Pat Smear, Chris Shiflett, Rami Jaffee, and Josh Freese (who joined the crew in May 2023). Grohl led the Foo Fighters back to Oz after their last gig in Geelong in March 2022.  Emotions were high, especially after losing drummer Taylor Hawkins just two weeks later.

Remembering Taylor Hawkins: A Tough Goodbye:

The Sydney concert hit differently, marking the Foo Fighters’ return since drummer Taylor Hawkins’ tragic passing. Hawkins, a rock legend since ’97, left us in shock when he was found dead in a Bogota hotel room in March 2022, at 50. The cause? A ‘cardiovascular collapse.’

Even with the heartache from losing Hawkins, Grohl’s tribute to Australia showed the band’s strength and deep connection with fans. It wasn’t just a gig; it was a celebration of the Foo Fighters’ journey, their love for Australia, and the unbeatable spirit of rock.

Conclusion: Sydney, You Rock!

So, there you have it – Grohl shoutout, the band’s comeback after a rough patch, and the roaring. Aussie crowd made the Foo Fighters’ Sydney gig one for the books.  In the Foo Fighters’ universe, Australia will always be that place where rock ‘n’ roll feels damn right at home!
