Foo Fighters Rock for Disaster Victims
Foo Fighters are playing two concerts to benefit victims of the Australian floods and the recent earthquake in New Zealand.
Dave Grohl’s band will play a show in Auckland, New Zealand on March 22nd before heading to Brisbane, Australia to perform in the city’s Botanic Gardens on March 27th.
The money raised in New Zealand will go toward the Christchurch Earthquake Appeal, founded in the aftermath of last month’s massive tremor which left more than 160 people dead.
The proceeds from the Australia concert will benefit the Disaster Relief Appeal to help with ongoing cleanup efforts following devastating floods in Queensland earlier this year.
Foo Fighters will release a documentary on the history of the band called Back and Forth on April fifth. Their new record, Wasting Light, hits stores April 12th and another album of cover tunes, Medium Rare, will come out on vinyl on Record Store Day, April 16th.
