Foo Fighters announce New Zealand tour in December 2022 – here’s how to get tickets

Live music is well and truly back!

It’s been a long wait, but finally The Foo Fighters are returning to New Zealand. Following up their one-off sold-out show in Australia, the band have announced they’ll be returning to New Zealand later this year.

As teased by Dave Grohl on stage in Australia, the 12-time Grammy winners and Rock & Roll Hall of Famers are set to arrive in New Zealand this December.

With six #1 albums – and 10 in the top 10 – in New Zealand, including their latest and tenth studio album Medicine At Midnight, and a catalogue of hits including ‘Everlong’, ‘Best Of You’, ‘The Pretender’, ‘Learn To Fly’, ‘All My Life’ and so much more across their 26-year career, this show is set to be a huge celebration.

Foo Fighters will bring all their hits back to New Zealand when they take over Auckland’s Western Spring Stadium on Saturday 17 December. They will also perform in Australia at HBF Park, Perth on Wednesday 30 November 2022. Tickets to both shows go on sale on Thursday 10 March via Ticketmaster.

‘The Pretender’, ‘Monkey Wrench’, ‘The Sky Is A Neighborhood’, ‘Learn to Fly’, ‘All My Life’, ‘Rope’, ‘Breakout’, ‘Best Of You’, ‘This Is a Call’, ‘My Hero’, ‘Times Like These’, ‘Arlandia’, ‘Everlong’, ‘Big Me’, Foo Fighters’ sonic arsenal has served as the soundtrack to so many of our lives.

Always serving up fan favourites spanning from their 1995 debut up to their recent tenth studio, 2021’s ARIA #1 Medicine At Midnight, a night spent with Foo Fighters is nothing short of unforgettable.

Joining Foo Fighters as special guests in Auckland are Amyl and the Sniffers. Renowned for a ball-tearing live show, they won an ARIA Award for ‘Best Rock Album’ last year, capping off a wild 12 months for the lunatic, likeable punks. Their 2021 effort Comfort to Me debuted at #2 in Australia, #21 in the UK, and #18 in the US, and was BBC6’s Album of the Day.

Also in the mix are Dick Move. Infamous already for their pumping live shows, their catalogue of blink-and-you’ll-miss-it punk anthems cutting, confronting, empowering and dripping with brash cheekiness and political angst.

Why can’t I access my Foo Fighters ticket right away?

If you have purchased tickets to Foo Fighters New Zealand tour in 2022, you will have received a confirmation email to the address listed in your MyTicketmaster account.

However, there is a ticket delivery delay in place until, at least, Monday 24 October 2022 – this means you will not be able to access your Foo Fighters ticket until after that date.

Get to know Ticketmaster’s Smart Queue

If you aren’t familiar with Smart Queue, it is Ticketmaster’s way of creating a clear and fair process for thousands of fans to buy tickets in a short space of time. Fans enter the virtual Waiting Room prior to onsale time before joining the Smart Queue – which acts as a ‘virtual line’, helping us protect you and your tickets in a more effective way.

The time you join the Waiting Room does not determine your place in the Smart Queue, so we recommend joining at least 10 minutes prior to the event going on sale.

When the sale begins, the Smart Queue will open and everyone in the Waiting Room is given a place in line. Those who did not join the Waiting Room will be placed at the end of the line.

  • Sign in to your Ticketmaster account at least 10 minutes before joining the Waiting Room. This will speed up your purchase later.
  • Confirm you have a valid form of payment in your account with current email and billing information. This will make checkout a breeze.
  • Resist the urge to refresh. Your page will automatically refresh when you enter the Smart Queue.
  • Keep an eye on the time! When it’s your turn, your spot will be held for 10 minutes to begin shopping.
  • Just like before, tickets are always based on availability, demand, and are not guaranteed.

Will there be a ticket limit?

Yes, there will be a ticket limit in place for Foo Fighters New Zealand tour.

There is a ticket limit of 6 (six) tickets per customer in the presale.

There is a ticket limit of 8 (eight) tickets per customer in the general public sale.

Persons who exceed the ticket limit may have any or all of their orders and tickets cancelled without notice by Ticketmaster at its discretion. This includes orders associated with the same name, e-mail address, billing address, credit card number or other information.

How do I purchase Accessible Seating tickets?

Make sure you have a My Ticketmaster account

Get the basics covered before tickets go on sale by logging in and checking your Ticketmaster account ahead of time. If you don’t have a Ticketmaster Account then make sure you sign up in advance –

Sign into your My Ticketmaster account ahead of time

Remember to triple check your passwords, account information, and billing information are all filled in correctly in advance, that way you’re not facing any last-minute account updates when trying to process your order.

Keep your options open with ‘Best Available’

Save time by searching “Best Available,” which scans all sections fast – it’s quicker than searching sections one at a time.

Keep an eye on the clock

There will be a time limit applied to all transactions as they’re progressed through the ticket purchasing stages. Remember to keep an eye on the timer on your screen and move through the processing pages as quickly as possible (this is even easier when you’ve completed the account set-up stage we mentioned above).

Don’t refresh your screen

Stick to one window while you’re in the Waiting Room and when you’re being pushed through the Smart Queue and always resist the urge to refresh.

Hitting the refresh button means you’ll lose your place in the queue and, as frustrating as it can get, patience is the only way to win this game. Ticketmaster is equipped with sophisticated systems that are designed to manage and process ticket purchases as quickly as possible. The queuing system that appears on your screen will place you at the front of the line as soon as possible.

Remember: there are a lot of fans

We’re expecting this to be a very popular event. When a popular event goes on sale there are hundreds, and sometimes thousands, of customers all attempting to purchase tickets at the same time. Tickets are sold as long as seats are available, and when an act is as popular as Foo Fighters, sometimes they go very quickly.

Be sure to follow the above tips to ensure you have the best chance of snapping up some tickets.
