Foo-Fighters

Formed in 1994 by former Nirvana drummer Dave Grohl, Foo Fighters have recently released their ninth studio album Concrete and Gold, which includes the hit single Sky is a Neighbourhood.

Following a year-long break the band returned to touring in June, with a headline set at the UK’s Glastonbury (cap. 140,000) festival among other performances. They had been due to play the festival in 2015, but were forced to pull out after Grohl broke his leg.

The band finished this year in the US, playing venues including Golden 1 Center (17,608) in Sacramento and Vivint Smart Home Arena (20,000) in Salt Lake City, before starting 2018 in Australia at Perth’s nib Stadium (32,000) and Sydney’s ANZ Stadium (83,500).

“The energy at a Foo Fighters show is both inspiring and palpable,” says the band’s international agent Russell Warby at WME in the UK.

“They are always working on new elements that continue to surprise me – and I go to as many shows as possible. The band want to make everyone’s concert experience special, offering extraordinary musicianship and communication to every audience member.”

John Silva at Silva Artist Management in Los Angeles is the band’s manager.
