Published Jan 09, 2013When Dave Grohl recently announced that he would be performing at Sundance with a new band called Sound City Players, he neglected to mention which musicians would be appearing alongside him. Now, the Foo Fighters leader has confirmed the star-studded list of folks who will be joining him on stage in support of his new Sound City documentary.
The performers were revealed in a post on Facebook. They include Stevie Nicks (Fleetwood Mac), John Fogerty (Creedance Clearwater Revival), Krist Novoselic (Nirvana), Brad Wilk (Rage Against the Machine), Pat Smear (Nirvana's touring guitarist), Rami Jaffee (the Wallflowers), Lee Ving (Fear), Rick Nielsen (Cheap Trick), Rick Springfield, several Foo Fighters members (Taylor Hawkins, Nate Mendel, Chris Shiflett), Alain Johannes (Queens of the Stone Age), Corey Taylor (Slipknot, Stone Sour) and more.
These are some of the folks who appear in Sound City, which focuses on the legendary Los Angeles studio of the same name.
The show takes place on January 18 at Park City Live in Park City, UT. If you're going to be in town for the Sundance Film Festival, you can order tickets starting today (January 9) at Park City Live's website.
A previous announcement revealed, "The concert will feature core musicians and special guests from Grohl's Sundance Film Festival selected film Sound City." It's not clear exactly who are the guests and who is in the core band, although a rehearsal photo posted on Facebook (see above) shows Grohl playing with Hawkins and Johannes.
Sound City goes on sale digitally starting February 1. The soundtrack, Sound City - Real to Reel, follows on March 12.
