A review of the concert is available at Billboard.com.
The show sold out within minutes of going on sale January 9 and celebrated the premiere — earlier in the day on January 18 — of “Sound City: Real To Reel”, a new documentary produced and directed by Grohl.
The documentary chronicles the history of Sound City, a legendary Los Angeles studio at which dozens of classic rock albums were recorded. Grohl interviewed a number of artists for the film and also arranged for older and contemporary artists to collaborate on new music for the project.
“Sound City” will be available in theaters, on DVD and on demand on February 1. It can be pre-ordered directly from Grohl at the official film web site.
An accompanying soundtrack album will arrive on March 12. A song from that collection, “Cut Me Some Slack”, featuring the members of NIRVANA and Paul McCartney, was released last month.
SOUND CITY PLAYERS has confirmed a second gig to follow the Sundance Film Festival debut. The outfit will perform at the Hollywood Palladium in Los Angeles on January 31, the same night that the movie premieres at that city’s Cinerama Dome and in 44 other cities around the U.S. The show that night will feature Stevie Nicks, Rick Springfield, John Fogerty, members of BLACK REBEL MOTORCYCLE CLUB, CHEAP TRICK, RAGE AGAINST THE MACHINE and more, along with the members of FOO FIGHTERS and NIRVANA.
