Foo Fighters have been praised for helping flood victims in Australia.

Polictican Anna Bligh hailed Dave Grohl's band for helping raise money for victims of the recent Queensland flooding disaster with a charity concert in Brisbane last night (March 27).

"[Dave Grohl] said, 'This is what I know how to do. I don't know how to fix people's roofs, but I know how to make music and make money,' she told News.com.au.

"They wanted to speak about how many people were out of their homes... they are genuinely interested. They were wanting to help. Foo Fighters care about people who need help."

Bligh revealed that the Premier's Disaster Relief Fund has raised more than $250 million (£160 million) with the help of the band.

Foo Fighters also recently played a gig in New Zealand to help victims of the recent earthquake.
