Sound City, Dave Grohl’s highly anticipated full-length documentary about a storied Los Angeles recording studio, makes its public premiere at the annual Sundance Film Festival in Utah this month.
With the announcement of the Sound City Players’ performance, the Foo Fighters frontman hinted that he had a few surprises up his sleeve.
Grohl has just revealed one of those surprises and it’s sure to delight his West Coast fans.
Along with a list of select U.S. and Canadian theaters, Grohl will hold Sound City’s Los Angeles premiere at the famed Cinerama Dome on Thursday, January 31 at 7PM. Despite this being a private event and tickets unavailable to the public, what happens afterward is open to anyone willing to buy a ticket.
Immediately following the film’s premiere, Grohl and his Sound City Players will trek a few blocks to the historic Hollywood Palladium for a once-in-a-lifetime concert experience. Made up of many of the film’s stars, Sound City Players’ all-star roster includes Grohl, fellow Foo Fighters Pat Smear, Taylor Hawkins, Chris Shiflett and Nate Mendel, his former Nirvana bandmate Krist Novoselic, Rage Against The Machine‘s Brad Wilk and hardcore punk rock icon, Lee Ving of Fear as well as musical icons Stevie Nicks, John Fogerty, Rick Springfield and Rick Nielsen of Cheap Trick.
Priced at $75.00 plus a service charge of $15.90, tickets for the Hollywood Palladium show go on sale Wednesday, January 16 at 12PM PT via Livenation.
The Sound City documentary and soundtrack, Reel To Reel, are both available for pre-order now at soundcitymovie.com.
