Foo Fighters New Zealand Set List & Reviews


Foo Fighters Set List Auckland New Zealand

Wasting Light Tour

Western Springs

December 13 2011

This was the second show that the Foo Fighters have played in NZ this year after they generously played a benefit gig to support the people of Christchurch following the dreadful earthquake.

The Herald's review said "While it's taken 17 or so years, the Foo Fighters are now a stadium-sized rock band and the near 45,000 people at Western Springs are testament to it. Not many bands have the pulling power to play the Springs these days."

"Tenacious D - the duo of actor and comedian Jack Black and guitarist Kyle Glass (who joined the Foo Fighters for the encore) - were the comedy show before the main event. And as Black joked, if Ten D are the thunder, the Foos were the lightning."

Stuff reported in their review "And around 50,000 fans did fill it, stretching up into the tops of the slippery banks, and belted the well-known songs back at the band. They weren't forgotten by Grohl who had the two sections of the crowd sing to each other towards the end of the show.

The crowd lit up further when Grohl announced the band was filming a live video at the concert to go with the new single These Days - dubbed by the singer his favourite he has written.

For two hours and 45 minutes the Foos were relentless.

Older tunes and new were received with equal enthusiasm, with the new album Wasting Light having been out long enough now to avoid the inevitable restlessness for their old hits that bands touring with new material often have to overcome."
