Foo Fighters continue their 2023 tour this evening (June 2nd) with a third appearance at Germany's Rock Am Ring Festival. Taking place within the grounds of the famous Nürburgring racing circuit the band are set to play only their fifth show of the year, and the first outside of the United States.

The band previously played the festival in 2015 and 2018 and on both occasions the set was broadcast live, either via traditional TV and radio broadcasts or on online stream. The 2018 appearance and online stream is well-known to fans - Dave Grohl lost his voice due to sickness which made for a pretty different Foo Fighters performance.

It meant a rather unique show which saw Taylor and Chris step up their vocal duties to help out Dave, his vocals becoming increasingly hoarse as the set progressed. One touching moment came when Taylor jumped in to sing the lead vocals for 'Times Like These', despite not knowing all of the words.

This years festival will thankfully also be available to fans with local broadcaster RTL+ partnering with the festival to bring fans a live online stream of the entire event.

What time is the show?

The band take to the Utopia stage at approximately 10:45PM local time in Germany. To find out how this translates to your timezone we've created a handy event page on
