Dave Grohl will be bringing his Sound City Players to New York City for one very special show. Grohl will be joined by a star-studded lineup in the Sound City Players first and only NYC concert at Hammerstein Ballroom on Feb. 13.
Dave Grohl started the Sound City Players as part of the “Sound City” documentary he directed and its accompanying album “Sound City – Reel to Reel.” Most notably, Grohl, along with Nirvana band mates Krist Novoselic and Pat Smear, joined Paul McCartney during the “12-12-12” Hurricane Sandy relief concert at Madison Square Garden to play “Cut Me Some Slack.”
“Sound City” debuted during the Sundance Film Festival earlier this month and Grohl formed the Sound City Players to play a one-off concert at Park City, Utah but later added a date in Hollywood where he assembled an all-star lineup of musicians to round out the band. The documentary focuses on the famed Van Nuys, California studio that hosted Neil Young, Tom Petty, Fleetwood Mac, Metallica, Johnny Cash, Foreigner, Red Hot Chili Peppers and Nirvana.
On February 13 at Hammerstein Ballroom, Sound City Players will make their debut and it will be the first and only New York concert for Grohl’s band. Sound City Players will consist of the former-Nirvana members Grohl, Smear and Novoselic as well as Grohl’s Foo Fighters drummer Taylor Hawkins. This core group of musicians will be joined by Stevie Nicks (Fleetwood Mac), John Fogerty (Creedence Clear Water Revival), Rick Springfield, Lee Ving (Fear), Rick Nielsen (Cheap Trick) and Brad Wilk (Rage Against the Machine). Expect plenty more artists to join Sound City Players on stage in New York.
Tickets for the show go on sale February 5 via Ticketmaster. The “Sound City” documentary is currently available to download via iTunes and from the filmmakers themselves. The “Sound City – Reel to Reel” album will be released on March 12.
The “Sound City” trailer and the performance of "Cut Me Some Slack" can be viewed below.
