Foo Fighters are set to play a gig in New Zealand to raise money for the victims of the recent earthquake in the country.

Dave Grohl's band will perform at Auckland's Town Hall on Tuesday (March 22) to raise cash for the CHCH Earthquake Relief Fund.

The decision to play the gig follows a video message Grohl had recorded for the victims of the disaster, which struck on February 22.

The video was posted on Theedge.co.nz, with Grohl pledging that the band would do "what they could" to help raise money for the appeal.

Tickets for the gig go on sale on Friday exclusively from Theedge.co.nz.

Foo Fighters release their seventh studio album 'Wasting Light' on April 11.
