Star studded band announce Forum gig
Dave Grohl‘s Sound City Players have confirmed details of a one-off London gig.
The band, who have previously only played in America, feature a revolving line-up with members of Foo Fighters plus Nirvana’s Krist Novoselic 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. The band formed around the making of Grohl’s documentary about the Sound City studios with Paul McCartney writing and recording a song with Grohl as part of the film.
The London gig will take place at The Forum on February 19 with tickets available now.
On 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.
Sound City will screen at selected UK cinemas on February 18. A screening at London’s Vue Leicester Square will be followed by a live Q&A session with Grohl himself.
