Foo Fighters New Drummer Honors Taylor Hawkins On Tour

Foo Fighters drummer Josh Freese recently took to his Instagram account and posted pictures after finishing up 2023 tour. The picture also included his drum tech, Fiona. His caption read:

“Foo Fighters just wrapped up an amazing 2023 and I wanted to give a big shout out/thank you to my fabulous drum tech (and favorite Aussie) Fiona! When I arrived to the Foo’s studio in summer of 2022 to rehearse for the Taylor tribute shows, I was happy to see a female Drum Tech working for the band. I don’t know any female Drum Techs and I’ve always thought there needs to be more (any?) She had been working for Taylor for a while before his passing and I was happy to keep her on with this crew and family she was already a part of. A total professional, a pleasure to be around on an off stage and my fav bad-ass Aussie. Total legend! Let’s hear it for Fiona!

P.S. she and I filmed a full on “rig rundown” of all my gear and I left the hard drive in one of our wardrobe cases and won’t be able to get to it until next month. πŸ™„But that will be coming one of these days soon. πŸ₯πŸ”₯πŸŽ‰”

Meanwhile, Foo Fighters fans who were hoping for the band to come to their area and were previously disappointed may just be in luck have good news. The band added some new dates to their upcoming North American tour.

Dubbed the β€˜Everything of Nothing At All’ tour, the newly added dates in May will all be opened by Nova Twins. As of right now, the Foos are slated to play Brisbane, Australia tonight with some more dates in New Zealand scheduled for January.
