The Lollapalooza show followed a unique Australian Foo Fighters concert that took place earlier this month.

The gig in Geelong, Victoria was Australia’s first full-capacity stadium show by an international act in two years, and to a five-star review NME said: “Stumbling out of the stadium, it’s hard not to feel like you’re witnessing a historic event. Mother Nature may have brought the rain, but the Foos came even stronger with their thunder.

Elsewhere, Grohl has confirmed that he will be releasing an album of music he recorded as fictional metal band Dream Widow this week.

In the recent comedy horror movie The Foo Fighters Workshop 666, The band rents a mansion in Encino to record their 10th studio album, but Grohl soon becomes possessed by a curse and begins violently attacking his bandmates.

Throughout the film, we learn that decades earlier, the band Dream Widow met a similar fate, with the band recording a “lost album” before their leader murdered the rest of the band.

Now, according to Varietythis “lost album” will arrive digitally this Friday (March 25), with a physical release to follow later in the year.
