Foo Fighters & Tenacious D Return

The Frontier Touring Company are not just delighted, they're damn well besides themselves with giddy excitement, to announce what is arguably THE biggest rock concerts of the summer.

#1 chart-toppers the Foo Fighters are returning to Australia for stadium shows and theyre bringing some pretty awesome friends in tow: none other than Tenacious D!

With over 15 years of experience, as documented in the bands recently released DVD Back And Forth (Sony) and as headliners of the worlds most prestigious venues and festivals, Foo Fighters have become arguably the premiere live American rock act the world over. Their upcoming stadium tour will surely remind their Australian and New Zealand fans just how the band has achieved its mastery of the live element as Dave Grohl, Taylor Hawkins, Nate Mendel, Chris Shiflett and Pat Smear lead these colossal crowds in singalongs of such classics from their multi-platinum, 6 time Grammy Award winning catalogue as Everlong, The Pretender, Learn To Fly, All My Life, Best Of You, new staples Rope and Walk and more.

It's no secret that Australia and New Zealand love the Foo Fighters and the sentiment is 100% reciprocated. Upon hearing of the natural disasters that affected Queensland and Christchurch earlier this year, the Foos were quick to donate their time and raise over $1 million for the relief funds: If the Foo Fighters tour wasnt already exciting enough, no event can legitimately lay claim to the biggest rock concert of the year without including the band behind the "best song in the world". Oh yes, were talking about the one and only Tenacious D aka. Jack Black and Kyle Gass who last blew fans away with their 2007 tour of Australia and New Zealand.
