When we saw the first NYC screening of Sound City, a rep from Variance Films (who was on hand to introduce the film) joked how disappointed we likely were that Dave Grohl wasn’t there. In fact, Grohl was in L.A. for both a separate screening and for a show with his “Sound City Players,” who made their live debut at the Sundance Film Fest in Utah. However, now Grohl is giving fans in NYC a chance to seem his all-star group live.
Grohl and the “Sound City Players” will be performing at the Hammerstein Ballroom on February 13. Expected to appear at the show will be Stevie Nicks, John Fogerty, Rick Springfield, Cheap Trick’s Rick Nielsen, Rage Against The Machine’s Brad Wilk, and Grohl’s bandmates in Nirvana and Foo Fighters, among others. Not only do all of these musicians appear in the film and soundtrack, but have also taken part in the “Sound City Players’” shows in L.A. and at Sundance.
Tickets go on sale this Tuesday, February 5, via Ticketmaster. And while a single ticket will cost $87.50 ($103.50 after “convenient” charges), this might be the only chance for fans in the Tri-State area to see Grohl and his supergroup onstage.
