Foo Fighters Concert Caused Earthquake-Level Geological Tremors

Foo Fighters Concert Caused Earthquake-Level Geological Tremors

The Foo Fighters may just be the most intense rock group around. No, really.

New Zealand's GeoNet blog reported via The Hollywood Reporter that the group's Dec. 13 concert in Auckland, New Zealand actually caused geological tremors similar to a volcanic event.

It was recorded that a strong low frequency of tremors were detected during the show -- 1.5 and 2 kilometers from the venue -- correlating to the highs and lows of the performance.

"The first vibrations were recorded around 7:30pm, part way through the Tenacious D set, but the biggest shakes started at 8:20pm when the Foo Fighters took the stage, and then it all went quiet at 11pm when the gig ended," Geonet states.

The show, which was attended by approximately 50,000 fans, marked a brief hiatus of the band's worldwide tour. They will resume in March with performances in Japan, Latin America and North America.

Boy, talk about going out with a bang.
