By on August 28, 2023

If you’re a fan of rock music, you’re in for a treat this year. The legendary band Foo Fighters is headlining the Austin City Limits Music Festival, and they’re bringing their energy, passion and talent to the stage. Foo Fighters have been rocking the world since 1994, when Dave Grohl, the former drummer of Nirvana, formed the band as a one-man project. Since then, they have released ten studio albums, won 12 Grammy Awards, and sold over 30 million records worldwide. They are known for their powerful sound, catchy melodies, and honest lyrics that touch on themes like love, loss, and resilience.

Foo Fighters are no strangers to ACL. They first played the festival in 2008, and returned in 2015 for a memorable performance that was cut short by a storm. This year, they are back with a vengeance, and they have a lot of new material to share. Their latest album, Medicine at Midnight, was released in February 2021, and it showcases a more pop-oriented side of the band, while still retaining their signature rock edge. The album features songs like “Shame Shame”, “Waiting on a War”, and “No Son of Mine”, which explore different aspects of Grohl’s life and emotions.

Foo Fighters are also celebrating their 25th anniversary as a band this year, and they have a special surprise for their fans. They have released a documentary series called Foo Fighters: Sonic Highways, which chronicles their journey across eight American cities, where they recorded songs for their eighth album of the same name. The series gives an insight into the band’s creative process, as well as the history and culture of each city. It’s a must-watch for any music lover.

If you want to see Foo Fighters live at ACL this year, you better hurry and get your tickets. They are playing on both weekends of the festival, on October 1st and October 8th, at the American Express Stage. They are sure to deliver an unforgettable show that will make you sing along, dance, and rock out.
