Hammerstein Ballroom gig is set for February 13th
Dave Grohl’s Sound City Players took over Sundance last month with a three-plus hour performance celebrating his directorial debut on the Sound City documentary in style. The show boasted an all-star lineup of musicians featured in the film, with Grohl bringing out friends including Stevie Nicks, John Fogerty and Rick Springfield for the extended set. Now, after performing last night in Los Angeles, Grohl and the Sound City Players have booked a sole New York show set for February 13th at the Hammerstein Ballroom.
The lineup includes Nicks, Fogerty, Springfield, Rick Nielsen of Cheap Trick, Brad Wilk of Rage Against the Machine, Grohl’s Nirvana bandmate Krist Novoselic, Foo Fighters’ Taylor Hawkins, Nate Mendel and Pat Smear. Tickets will go on sale February 5th at 4 p.m. EST on Ticketmaster.
Sound City, a cinematic love note to the Van Nuys, California, recording studio, is available on the film’s website, and its soundtrack, Sound City – Real to Reel, will be released March 12th.
