Who doesn’t love a surprise?
Well, if you’re a fan of rock legends Foo Fighters, you’re in for a real treat, because news came through just recently that the band will be putting on a one-off surprise gig tonight at the Oxford Art Factory in Sydney.
Playing as their ‘covers’ band “Chevy Metal”, Foos members Dave Grohl and Taylor Hawkins will be on stage, along with fellow Chevy Metal players Brent Woods (Sebastian Bach) and Wiley Hodgen (The Birds of Satan).
With such stellar talent on board, the place is sure to be rocking to the sounds of their covers of AC/DC, Rolling Stones, Queen and the like.
It’s not the first time we’ve seen the Foos pull this sort of thing off, having played another Aussie set with Chevy Metal on the Gold Coast back in 2015, and with Hawkins and Grohl currently in Oz to plug new record Concrete and Gold, this last-minute gig is an awesome bonus.
Foo Fighters haven’t announced any proper Aussie tour dates just yet, but with the record on its way, we expect we’ll be seeing them down this way some time soon.
But why wait until then? If you’re after a rock and rollicking good time (and are lucky enough to score a last-minute ticket), get thee to the Oxford Art factory tonight any which way you can. Chris Prindiville
