Foo Fighters’ recent gigs in Brisbane and Auckland to raise money for victims of the Queensland floods and Christchurch earthquake raised a whopping $1 million for the two causes. In New Zealand their Auckland charity concert raised NZ$354,903 for the New Zealand Government Christchurch Earthquake Appeal while in Australia their Brisbane charity concert raised AUD$770,717 for the Queensland Premier’s Disaster Relief Appeal. Reviews of the shows were unanimous in describing the shows as stellar events which left fans in raptures. External accounting firms have conducted a comprehensive audit of the two concerts and compiled detailed Profit and Loss reports which punters can peruse at www.frontiertouring.com. The reports detail the costs incurred in staging the Foo Fighters’ charity concerts. Frontier Touring Company head honcho Michael Gudinski said;

“The Foo Fighters were determined to help New Zealand and Australia in the aftermath of these terrible disasters.  The overwhelming success of the concerts and the more than AUD$1 million raised across the two countries shows how much the Foos care for the people of Australia and New Zealand and they displayed this by staging two of the more memorable rock shows in recent times.”
