It’s a demanding schedule that sees five-piece the Foo Fighters on the road throughout 2015 and into next year, and comes after gruelling sessions for their latest albumĀ Sonic Highways.

They set up shop in eight different American cities, giving themselves just a week to record a song – and just a night for Dave Grohl to write his lyrics – before moving on to the next.

As added pressure, they filmed an eight-part HBO documentary at the same time.

Right now, the Foos are in New Zealand. Last night they kicked off their three-date New Zealand tour in Christchurch. They’ll perform an Auckland Town Hall show tomorrow night, before Saturday’s super-sized Mt Smart Stadium show.
