Dave Grohl will bring his supergroup the Sound City Players to London later this month for their inaugural UK gig.
Grohl formed the star-studded collective to promote his new documentary on Los Angeles’ world famous Sound City studios, and has already recruited the likes of John Fogerty, Stevie Nicks and former Nirvana bandmate Krist Novoselic for a handful of shows in the US.
The group make their bow in the UK on February 19th at the London Forum, with the full line-up still to be confirmed. Tickets are onsale now.
Most of the rolling cast of Sound City members appear on the documentary’s official soundtrack, which also features an original composition entitled ‘Cut Me Some Slack‘ – put together by Grohl, Novoselic and Sir Paul McCartney last year.
It was performed live by the trio for the first time at the 12.12.12 benefit concert in New York City. A studio version followed online soon after as the main promotional tool for Grohl’s film, which received its premiere last month.
