Earlier this week tickets for Dave Grohl and the Sound City Players’ lone New York City gig sold out with a quickness. The show will take place at the Hammerstein Ballroom on February 13th and while in town Grohl will make a pair of television appearances in support of his directorial debut.
Grohl and the Sound City Players, along with Fleetwood Mac’s Stevie Nicks, will make their network television debut on the February 14th episode of The Late Show with David Letterman. Letterman has never hid his love for Grohl’s music even recruiting the Foo Fighters to play Everlong on his first show back after heart surgery, referring to it as “my favorite band playing my favorite song.”
Dave will also visit The Colbert Report on February 13th to discuss Sound City.
Last night the Sound City Players rocked Hollywood with a lineup featuring Dave Grohl and the Foo Fighters, Rick Springfield, Krist Novoselic, Stevie Nicks and John Fogerty as well as members of Rage Against The Machine, Black Rebel Motorcycle Club and Cheap Trick.
