MEDIA RELEASE: MONDAY SEPTEMBER 11, 2017
THE FOO FIGHTERS TAKE OVER MAX THIS FRIDAY!
To celebrate rock legends ‘Foo Fighters’ returning to Australia as part of their global stadium tour in 2018, and the release of their new album ‘Concrete and Blonde’, this Friday Foxtel’s MAX is handing over the channel to Dave Grohl and Taylor Hawkins for ‘Foo Fighters Friday’.
In a world first, kicking off at 6.00am this Friday, September 15, the two band members will discuss the making of their highly anticipated ninth studio album ‘Concrete and Gold, in between programming their own iconic music videos and concerts including ‘A Sky is a Neighbourhood’, ‘Run’, ‘Learn to Fly’, ‘Monkey Wrench’, ‘The Pretender’. They will also relive the magic of their longest ever live gig at Goat Island in Sydney.
Fraser Stark, Group Channel Manager of Foxtel Arts & Music channels said: “The biggest rock band in the world right now, the Foo Fighters, have a very long and successful history with the Foxtel music channels – from the very early days, to the epic ‘Wasting Light on the Harbour’ concert on Sydney Harbour, to now.
“The band is easily one of MAX’s most requested acts of all time, so it’s fitting that MAX is the official media partner of the Foo’s 2018 tour. Dave Grohl and Taylor Hawkins are hosting the channel with their unique and personable style – introducing their legendary videos and iconic concerts for a full channel takeover. It’s epic.”
As one of the world’s most highly revered rock bands, the last time they toured in 2015 Foo Fighters played to over 250,000 Australians. And since first forming in the mid-nineties, have garnered 11 Grammy Awards and sold over 25 million albums worldwide.
Join Dave Grohl and Taylor Hawkins for Foo Fighters TV on ‘Foo Fighters Friday’ – September 15 from 6am, only on MAX, proud partners of their 2018 worldwide tour. For more concert info head to MAXTV.COM.AU
