The rockers will play Mount Smart Stadium on February 3, with alt-rockers Weezer supporting them.

In just over a week's time, the Foos are also set to drop their ninth studio album, Concrete and Gold.

They were last in the country celebrating their 20th anniversary on their world tour, playing music from their eighth album, Sonic Highways, as well as all the classics.

Frontman Grohl and bandmate Taylor Hawkins were in Sydney last week, performing a special one-off gig with Hawkins' rock covers band Chevy Metal to about 400 people.

The Everlong hitmakers also toured in 2011 and fans rocked so hard they created an earthquake in Auckland's Western Springs.

They join the already impressive line-up of, Lorde, Cat Stevens, The Weeknd, Khalid, The Chainsmokers, Sir Paul McCartney, Human League, Migos, J Cole, Stevie Nicks, Jack Johnson, Harry Styles and Future, who are all scheduled to play before Christmas.

In the early New Year Bruno Mars, Queen with Adam Lambert, The National, Ed Sheeran, James Blunt, Lionel Richie, Robbie Williams and Katy Perry's tours will also arrive here.

Tickets for the Foo Fighters go on sale on September 22, and pre-sales begin on September 19.
