Dave Grohl's all-star Sound City Players have announced plans for their 'first and only ever New York show'.

Members of Nirvana and Foo Fighters as well as Stevie Nicks, John Fogerty, Rick Springfield, Fear's Lee Ving, Cheap Trick's Rick Nielsen, Brad Wilk Of Rage Against The Machine, Alain Johannes, Chris Goss and more will play the Hammerstein Ballroom on February 13.

The Dave Grohl documentary which spawned the band - Sound City – is available to watch now at soundcitymovie.com. The film's soundtrack will come out on March 11, and will feature the Paul McCartney-featuring track, 'Cut Me Some Slack'.

Last night (January 31) Sound City Players played their second ever show at The Palladium in Hollywood. The gig followed their debut at the Sundance Film Festival last month in Utah.

The gig, which comprised 38 songs and lasted for three and half hours, followed the Los Angeles premiere of Sound City.

The show was split into sections, with each guest musician playing around four songs, including classic tracks and their contributions to the Sound City soundtrack.

Black Rebel Motorcycle Club were joined by Grohl on drums for 'Red Eyes and Tears' and 'Whatever Happened To My Rock And Roll', with bassist and singer Robert Levon Been saying: 'Its a great honour to be here and share the stage with these people."

Corey Taylor of Slipknot, Rick Nielsen of Cheap Trick and Krist Novoselic of Nirvana played a host of Cheap Trick numbers, including 'Hello There', 'Surrender' and 'Ain't That A Shame', with Taylor on lead vocals.

John Fogerty joined the Foo Fighters for a number of Creedence Clearwater Revival songs, including 'Travelin Band', 'Born On The Bayou', 'Bad Moon Rising', 'Proud Mary' and 'Fortunate Son', the latter of which he shared vocal duties with Grohl - scroll down to watch fan-shot footage.

Fleetwood Mac's Stevie Nicks was the final guest musician, performing 'Stop Draggin' My Heart Around', with Grohl filling in Tom Petty's role. Nicks also sang Fleetwood Mac's 'Dreams' and 'Landslide'. The evening came to a close with a near-10 minute version of 'Rumours' track 'Gold Dust Woman'.
