Dave Grohl to Perform With ‘Sound City Players’ at Sundance Film Festival Gig
Dave Grohl's 'Sound City' documentary will premiere at the Sundance Film Festival in Utah later this month and the Foo Fighters frontman-turned-fledgling-director will help build the anticipation with a concert at the Park City Live venue featuring some of the movie's key players.
The Sound City Facebook page stated, "Hey guess what? Sound City Players. Rock Show. Jan. 18th Park City Live. Yup. That's totally happening."
The Salt Lake Tribune revealed that "core musicians and special guests" are expected to turn up at the show, though none of the performers have been named as of yet. Park City Live CEO Kathryn Burns stated, "The film … showcases the most talented group of musicians in the world and we are thrilled they chose to celebrate the documentary at Park City Live. The evening will be spectacular and we look forward to seeing who will join Dave Grohl and the Sound City Players onstage."
Grohl has spent the better portion of the past year working on the 'Sound City' documentary, which traces the history of some of the musicians that have recorded at the legendary Hollywood studio. The film features a wide array of performers, including Paul McCartney and members of Rage Against the Machine, Nine Inch Nails, Queens of the Stone Age, Metallica and Nirvana, among others.
